Talib recorded two tackles and one interception during Sunday's loss to the Eagles. In his third week back from injured reserve, Talib logged more than 60 defensive snaps for a second game in a row and recorded his first interception as a Ram along the way. His heroics came at a critical juncture, too, considering Los Angeles was then down 17 points in the second half. The five-time Pro Bowler will look to continue his strong play in Week 16 when his team looks to exploit Cardinals rookie quarterback Josh Rosen, who's thrown 14 interceptions in 12 games this season.
Talib is expected to play a complete game against the Bears on Sunday, Lindsey Thiry of ESPN.com reports. Talib was limited to 26 snaps during Sunday's win over the Lions in what was his first game back from injured reserve. Barring any setbacks, the 11th-year veteran will handle a full starting workload as he suits up against the Bears in Week 14.
Talib played on a snap count during Sunday's 30-16 win over the Lions, Cameron DaSilva of USA Today reports. Talib did not record a single defensive statistic during Sunday's win. Coach Sean McVay said that he, "wanted to see how he [Talib] felt after about 30 snaps. I thought he did a nice job." McVay expressed optimism that Talib would handle a full starting workload against the Bears in Week 14.
Talib (ankle) was activated from injured reserve Friday Clarence Dennis of the Rams' official site reports. The 32-year-old cornerback was designated to return Monday and has been practicing throughout the week. Coach Sean McVay hasn't said anything definitive about Talib playing in Sunday's game against the Lions, but it wouldn't make much sense to activate him unless he's ready for a role of some sort. Talib could help the Rams contain Detroit wideout Kenny Golladay, who is working on a three-game streak with at least five catches and 78 yards.
Coach Sean McVay said Thursday that he expects Talib (ankle) to be activated to the 53-man roster before Sunday's contest at Detroit, Lindsey Thiry of ESPN.com reports. "He did a good job [at Wednesday's practice]," McVay stated. "I think he got more and more comfortable as the practice progressed, which was a positive thing." Talib has spent the past two months recovering from surgery to address a high-ankle sprain. Throughout November, he hinted that a Week 13 return was his expectation, and after returning to practice Wednesday, McVay seems to concur with the All-Pro cornerback. Barring a setback with his ankle, Talib appears as if he'll be elevated to the 53-man roster by Saturday afternoon's deadline.
