Pats CB Aqib Talib questionable to return with thigh injury

By Josh Katzowitz | NFL Writer

Patriots cornerback Aqib Talib, one of the most important players in New England's defense, returned to the locker room in the first quarter with a thigh injury. His return was questionable.

Talib, who was shadowing Ravens receiver Anquan Boldin on third-and-12, knocked away a Joe Flacco pass and immediately began to hobble, hopping at least three steps on just one leg. He walked to the sideline, where doctors immediately examined him.

The next time the Patriots defense took the field, Talib had not returned to the field.
