In the first half of the AFC Championship against the Denver Broncos, New England Patriots cornerback Aqib Talib suffered a rib injury. Before heading to the locker room, Talib made a brief detour in the x-ray room to get a full evaluation of his injury.
He is officially listed as questionable to return.
In last year’s AFC title game, Talib suffered a leg injury in the first quarter against the Baltimore Ravens that forced him to miss the remainder of the game. With Peyton Manning already lighting up the Patriots secondary, New England is hoping that this injury will not be as serious.
