Rams' Aqib Talib: Logs first interception of season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Rams' Aqib Talib: Won't see limited snaps
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Rams' Aqib Talib: Sees snap count in return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Rams' Aqib Talib: Starting in return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Talib will start at cornerback in his first game since being activated from Injured Reserve, Gary Klein of the Los Angeles Times reports.

Talib missed nine games while on IR due to an ankle injury. The Rams appear confident in the veteran corner's health, as evidenced by them immediately placing him in the starting lineup. He may still see a reduced snap count in his first game back if the team wants to ease him into a return, but it doesn't appear he'll be hindered much now that he's active.

Rams' Aqib Talib: Will play Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Sean McVay confirmed that Talib (ankle) would play in Sunday's game against the Lions, Lindsey Thiry of ESPN.com reports.

The Rams set the stage for Talib's return from a nine-game absence by activating him from injured reserve earlier Friday. After missing more than two months following ankle surgery, Talib could be eased into the secondary mix in Week 13, though it shouldn't take much time beyond Sunday's game before he reclaims a full-time starting role. Talib's return should ultimately translate to fewer snaps and easier assignments for the likes of Sam Shields, Troy Hill and Nickell Robey-Coleman.

Rams' Aqib Talib: Activated from IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Rams' Aqib Talib: Week 13 return expected
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Rams' Aqib Talib: Designated to return from IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Rams designated Talib (ankle) for return from injured reserve Monday, Myles Simmons of the team's official site reports.

Talib, who originally landed on IR after injuring his ankle in Week 3, is slated to return to practice with a reasonable expectation that he'll play Sunday against the Lions, though the Rams will have up to 21 days to activate him. His reinstatement from IR would undoubtedly be a significant boost to a Los Angeles defense that has allowed 8.1 yards per pass attempt in 2018 (27th in NFL). In less than three full games with Los Angeles this season, Talib racked up nine tackles, two pass breakups and one forced fumble.

Rams' Aqib Talib: Still eyeing Week 13 return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Talib (ankle) met with his doctor Wednesday and expects to be "full speed" by Thanksgiving, Myles Simmons of the Rams' official site reports.

The Rams have a bye in Week 12, so Talib's projected return remains on track for a Week 13 matchup against the Lions. Head coach Sean McVay added that the cornerback was making a lot of progress in his rehab. It's worth noting that with an 8-1 record, Los Angeles has little reason to rush Talib back until he's fully healthy.

Rams' Aqib Talib: Potential Week 13 return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Talib (ankle) is hopeful to return from injured reserve for the Rams' Week 13 matchup with the Lions, Alden Gonzalez of ESPN.com reports.

Talib was placed injured reserve with the designation to return after eight weeks in late September. He subsequently underwent surgery on his ankle and has been sidelined since. The veteran expressed optimism following a visit with his doctor on Tuesday and is setting his sights on a Week 13 return. Still, he will need to avoid any setbacks to reach that goal.

Rams' Aqib Talib: Placed on IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Talib (ankle) was placed on injured reserve Wednesday.

Talib is scheduled for surgery Thursday and will now be ineligible to play for the next eight weeks. The Rams likely hope to get him back late in the season, but they'll need Troy Hill and Sam Shields to step up for the time being. It doesn't help that the Rams' other starting cornerback, Marcus Peters (calf), is looking shaky for Thursday's game against the Vikings. It could result in a big night for Stefon Diggs and Adam Thielen, though Minnesota's struggling offensive line will have its hands full with Aaron Donald and Ndamukong Suh.

Rams' Aqib Talib: Ankle surgery scheduled
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Talib will undergo surgery Thursday to address his ankle injury, Rich Hammond of the Los Angeles Daily News reports.

Talib exited Sunday's win over the Chargers with a high-ankle sprain and was originally projected to miss around a month, but the procedure could lengthen his recovery timetable. In any event, head coach Sean McVay said he expects Talib to return at some point in 2018, so it doesn't appear the surgery will spell an end to his season. With Marcus Peters (calf) also at risk of missing time, Sam Shields and Nickell Robey-Coleman are expected to step into larger roles in the Los Angeles secondary beginning with Thursday's game against the Vikings.

Rams' Aqib Talib: Could require surgery on injured ankle
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

According to head coach Sean McVay, Talib could require surgery on his injured ankle but the Rams are hopeful he could return this season, Lindsey Thiry of ESPN.com reports.

Talib was initially expected to only miss one month of action, but McVay's wording in his most recent statement indicates that the veteran cornerback's entire season could be in jeopardy. Talib has been key for a Rams pass defense that has allowed under 200 passing yards per game thus far this season. Sam Shields and Nickell Robey-Coleman will both be expected to assume increased roles in the secondary for the foreseeable future.

Rams' Aqib Talib: Has high-ankle sprain
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Talib has been diagnosed with a high-ankle sprain, which will sideline him approximately one month, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Both Talib and Marcus Peters (calf) left Sunday's win against the Chargers, and both are slated for multi-game absences. With the offseason pickups out of commission for awhile, Sam Shields and Nickell Robey-Coleman will take on significant workloads within the Rams secondary.

Rams' Aqib Talib: Suffers ankle injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Talib suffered an ankle injury during Sunday's 35-23 victory over the Chargers, Vincent Bonsignore of The Athletic reports.

Talib exited Sunday's contest in the third quarter. It remains to be seen whether Talib's injury will threaten his Week 4 status, but if the veteran were to miss any time, Nickell Robey-Coleman would step in as the Rams' starting right cornerback.

Rams' Aqib Talib: Exits with injury Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Talib left Sunday's game against the Chargers with a lower-body injury, Rich Hammond of the Los Angeles Daily News reports.

Talib limped off the field late in the third quarter and headed to the locker room. He is questionable to return.

Rams' Aqib Talib: Starts in Saturday's game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Talib (ankle) played seven snaps in Saturday's preseason game against the Texans.

Talib missed some practice back in the early weeks of camp with an ankle injury, but his appearance in Saturday's contest hints that it is not of major concern. Talib will likely start the year starting at cornerback opposite Marcus Peters.

Rams' Aqib Talib: Dealing with minor ankle injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Talib did not practice Sunday due to a minor ankle injury, Rich Hammond of the Los Angeles Daily News reports.

There doesn't seem to be much concern regarding Talib's health, but it's still a situation worth monitoring. Expect the star cornerback to be back on the practice field sooner rather than later.

Broncos' Aqib Talib: Dealt to the Rams
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Broncos agreed to trade Talib to the Rams on Thursday, James Palmer of NFL Network reports.

The transaction won't go through until the new league year starts Wednesday, but the Rams have agreed to bring a pair of All-Pro cornerbacks (also, the Chiefs' Marcus Peters) into the fold this offseason. Since entering the NFL as a first-round pick in 2008, Talib has accounted for 34 interceptions and 10 touchdowns in 135 games with the Buccaneers, Patriots and the Broncos. Aiding in the transition from Denver to Los Angeles is Rams defensive coordinator Wade Phillips, who coached Talib in 2015 and 2016.

Broncos' Aqib Talib: Wants to stay in Denver
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Talib would like to retire a Broncos, Nicki Jhabvala of the Denver Post reports.

The Broncos currently have three corners set with a cap hit of $8.5 million or more, according to Over the Cap, topped off by Talib's $12 million. The elder statesman of the bunch, Talib would seem to be the most likely to go. General manager John Elway said this week that he is loathe to subtract from Denver's defense to improve the offense, but if Kirk Cousins comes knocking and Denver needs to clear up space -- Talib is an easy target given Chris Harris Jr. and Bradley Roby's ability to replace him.
