Prior to this news it was assumed that although Talib had suffered a high-ankle sprain and that he would only miss a month of action. The new expected timeline for Talib will make his return around the time of the Rams bye week which will be on Thanksgiving weekend.The Rams are scheduled to play their next game against the Minnesota Vikings on Thursday Night Football. With the Rams also missing Marcus Peters as he recovers from his injury. The team will have Sam Shields, Nickell Robey-Coleman and Troy Hill fill the void. Also the Rams have promoted Dominique Hatfield from practice squad to the active roster.Los Angeles Rams vs. Seattle Seahawks: Five Rams to watch revisited It wasnt pretty, but the Rams scratched and clawed their way to 5-0 with a tough 33-31 victory at Seattle. Heading into the game, there were a few narratives in play: a) the Rams would waltz into the Clink and destroy the shorthanded Seahawks, or b) winning on the road against a proud divisional opponent is never easy. Obviously, scenario b is what transpired.Heres a look at Sean Wilkinsons Five Rams to watch and how they performed on Sunday.ILB Mark BarronIn his season debut, Mark Barron logged 48 snaps (80%) and registered 9 total tackles, 5 of which were solo. His presence was felt Los Angeles Rams Womens Hoodie , as he was able to lay some lumber on the Seattle RBs. Still, the Seahawks success on the ground was a big factor in the game, and though Barrons return was welcome, the LB unit as a whole was once again underwhelming. Barrons injury was more than likely a high ankle sprain and not an achilles issue, as was widely speculated if its indeed behind him, look for him to return to form against the Broncos talented RB duo.RB Todd GurleyIts strange when youd call a 3-TD, 100 all-purpose yardage game ho-hum, but Todd Gurley has set such a high standard that his solid showing on Sunday was just that. His 3.5 YPC wasnt exactly awe-inspiring Womens Customized Los Angeles Rams Jerseys , but on the Rams final scoring drive, he did have a few nice 6-yard carries to help put us in position to win. He was also denied a TD on a questionable review. With the Rams success throwing the ball, its only a matter of time before Gurley breaks a few long runs, but he was unable to best his season-long rush of 23 yards on Sunday.K Cairo SantosNewly signed K Cairo Santos almost cost the Rams the game on Sunday with a badly missed PAT, but he recovered to nail the game-winning 39-yarder when the pressure was really on. Given the state of place-kicking this season Mason Crosby, anyone? well take it. Also: Santos looked like an NFL kicker, something no one ever said about Sam Ficken. A solid first game for the GZ placeholder.CB Sam ShieldsTwo weeks ago, I picked Troy Hill as one of my Rams to watch www.ramsfootballauthentics.com , but Marcus Peters was activated in a game-time decision, and Hill played just 2 snaps. This week, Hill got the nod over Vikings punching bag Sam Shields, as the veteran CB was on the field for just 10 plays. He continues to show a nose for the ball, with one near-INT in his limited action. Though Hill looked pretty solid opposite Peters (who did not), Shields likely remains a valuable part of the LA secondary as Wade Phillips rotates personnel.DL Ndamukong SuhIn what was probably his best game as a Ram to date, Suh registered 7 total tackles (3 solo) and a sack. He also had a sack negated by a defensive holding penalty. Not only is the big fella getting sacks and pressures from all over the line, hes getting them at critical moments in games. While were all sitting around feeling sorry for ourselves (at 5-0!) and our lack of sacks Los Angeles Rams T-Shirt , Suh is quietly having a badass season so far. If you want to nitpick, you can implicate him for some of the Rams run-stopping woes, but from here it looks like 93 is doing his job and doing it well.
