The Los Angeles Rams have been playing without veteran cornerback Aqib Talib since Week 4. But, things look to be turning around for the Rams’ secondary with the team announcing that Talib has been activated from the IR list.

Talib underwent surgery to fix a high ankle sprain and it would appear he is healthy enough to resume playing.

He will make his return to the field for a road game against the Detroit Lions on Sunday. His presence should make an immediate impact on a Rams’ secondary that has given up 25 passing touchdowns on the season.

This might not be viewed as good news to Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford. But it is excellent new for the 10-1 Rams who are attempting to earn home field advantage in the NFC.
