The Los Angeles Rams have gotten off to a scorching hot 3-0 start this year after a huge offseason free agency haul.


Unfortunately for LA, one of these prized acquisitions, cornerback Aqib Talib, will be out for an undetermined amount of time as he recovers from ankle surgery scheduled for Thursday.

​​To make matters worse, the Rams have a short week ahead as they are set to play against another NFC powerhouse in the Minnesota Vikings on Thursday night. Before the injury, the Rams would have matched up very well against Minnesota as their two star cornerbacks in Talib and Marcus Peters could have lined up across from the star receiving tandem of Adam Thielen and Stefon Diggs. 

Now they may not have either, as ​Marcus Peters was also injured on Sunday after he went down with a gruesome leg injury.

​​This is bad news for Los Angeles as they will have a hard time stopping Kirk Cousins and the rest of Minnesota's offense if neither cornerback is able to go. 


The Vikings are also dealing with injuries in their secondary and with news of their star pass rusher ​Everson Griffen likely missing Thursday's contest as well, we may have a shootout in Cali.
