Talib announced his decision to retire from the NFL via his personal Twitter account Wednesday. Talib suited up for five contests with the Rams in 2019 before suffering broken ribs and being traded to Miami for salary relief. The five-time Pro Bowler will be best remembered for his outstanding play in Denver as part of the "No Fly Zone," where he suited up from 2014 to 2017 and played a key role in winning Super Bowl 50. His 2013 performance in New England also earned Pro Bowl and second-team All-Pro honors.
The Dolphins won't activate Talib (ribs) from IR this season, Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald reports. The Dolphins will use their second IR activation on rookie linebacker Andrew Van Ginkel (foot), meaning they won't be able to bring back Talib. The 33-year-old was placed on IR by the Rams before being traded to the Dolphins on Oct. 29, and he's eligible to return Week 13 against the Eagles. Talib already stated he's healthy enough to play, but the Dolphins have opted to test out their young talent instead. Talib will be an unrestricted free agent in March, and he figures to have plenty of suitors when the time comes.
Talib (ribs) said he disagreed with being placed on injured reserve and that he's currently healthy enough to play, Cameron DaSilva of USA Today reports. Talib was placed on IR by the Rams on Oct. 16 with the broken ribs and was traded to the Dolphins last week for salary relief, but apparently the injury isn't that severe. The veteran cornerback could be designated to return from IR for the final four games of the season, but it's unclear if Miami would want to use one of its two return designations on a 33-year-old who will be a free agent next season.
Talib (ribs) was placed on injured reserve Wednesday, Stu Jackson of the Rams' official site reports. Talib missed Sunday's loss to the 49ers due to broken ribs and will now be sidelined for at least the next eight weeks due to the injury. Troy Hill is expected to slide into the starting role alongside recent trade-acquisition Jalen Ramsey.
Talib is dealing with broken ribs and is expected to be placed on injured reserve ahead of the Rams' Week 7 game against the Falcons, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports. Talib was inactive for Sunday's loss to the 49ers after suffering the injury in the prior week. He now will be sidelined for at least eight weeks before he's eligible to return from IR. It's the second consecutive season that Talib has been forced to IR, as a high-ankle sprain limited him to only eight appearances in 2018. Troy Hill and Nickell Robey-Coleman should see increased roles at cornerback while Talib is sidelined.
