Talib left the game with a knee injury in the second quarter of Sunday's AFC championship game against the Denver Broncos. The Patriots first announced Talib left with a rib ailment, but changed it to a knee after halftime. His return is questionable.
Talib was shaken up when he ran into Broncos receiver Wes Welker on a pass play over the middle. Talib stayed on the ground for several minutes before gingerly walking off the field. He was examined on the bench and headed to the locker room briefly before returning to the sideline.
