Aqib Talib Starting at CB in Week 13 vs. Lions

DETROIT — With a chance to clinch the NFC West, there were no real surprises for the Rams on their Week 13 inactives list against Detroit.

As expected, cornerback Aqib Talib is active after officially coming off injured reserve on Friday. He will start opposite cornerback Marcus Peters, reuniting the duo for the first time since the victory over the Chargers in Week 3.

Talib has a pair of passes defensed and a forced fumble in three games in 2018.

While he was inactive for Los Angeles' victory over Kansas City back in Week 11, outside linebacker Matt Longacre is active for the matchup against Detroit.

On the other side, starting running back Kerryon Johnson is inactive with a knee injury. He was declared out on Friday. LeGarrette Blount and Theo Riddick will likely split the bulk of the time at running back in Johnson's stead.

Kickoff is slated for 10 a.m. on FOX. Below are the full lists of inactives for both teams:
