Rams Planning To Place CB Aqib Talib On Injured Reserve


According to Adam Schefter of ESPN, the Rams are planning to place CB Aqib Talib on injured reserve due to his rib injury.

Schefter says that Talib could be a candidate to be designated to return later on in the season.

Talib, 33, is a former first-round pick of the Buccaneers back in 2008. He spent four years in Tampa Bay before joining the Patriots in 2012.

The Broncos later signed him to a six-year, $57 million contract that includes $26 million guaranteed before trading him to the Rams last year for a fifth-round pick.

Talib stands to make a base salary of $8 million for the 2019 season.

In 2019, Talib has appeared in five games for the Rams and recorded 14 tackles, no interceptions and two pass defenses.
