New England Patriots' CB Aqib Talib says his hip is 'fine'

According to ESPN Boston’s Mike Reiss, the New England Patriots’ top three corners, Alfonzo Dennard, Kyle Arrington and Aqib Talib were all listed as limited at Wednesday’s practice.

The Patriots will again likely be without Dennard, who has been bothered by a knee injury, when they take on the Denver Broncos Sunday.

Arrington has been hindered with a groin problem.

Talib returned from a hip injury that cost him three games Monday night, but was forced to exit the game and and had to watch the end from the sidelines instead of continuing his battle with Carolina Panthers’ wide receiver Steve Smith.

“It’s all right, it’s all right,” Talib told Field Yates of ESPN Boston when asked about his hip Wednesday. “It tightened up on me a little bit towards the end of the game. It’s fine though.”

Although Talib had issues Monday, the Patriots’ defense is clearly much better with him on the field. In just seven games, Talib has four interceptions.

“We’ll see,” Talib said when asked about playing Sunday. “I’m out there working like everybody else. Just taking it one day at a time.”

The Patriots will host the Broncos Sunday night at 8:30 pm EST.
