Just prior to their week 13 showdown with the Detroit Lions, the Los Angeles Rams have officially activated CB Aqib Talib off the injured reserve list and in a corresponding move have waived WR Nick Williams:
Talib returns after suffering an ankle injury in week three against the Los Angeles Chargers. Originally being brought in as the top cornerback on the team, Talib had a solid 2.5 weeks of play up until his unfortunate injury. His familiarity with Defensive Coordinators Wade Phillips’ defense as well as his talent will be a big boost for the team.
The return of Talib allows Marcus Peters to stick to the right side of the field and Talib return to the left. Talib’s return allows CB Troy Hill to return to the bench.
In the corresponding move, Nick Williams was a part of the team for the past few weeks though hasn’t been a factor. He was also inactive recently.
