NFL DRAFT DIAMONDS

Aqib Talib’s injury could cost the Pats the game

Aqib Talib collided with former Patriots wide receiver Wes Welker on a play over the middle, sending him to the ground and eventually out of the game.

Talib received attention from medical staffers on the sideline before heading back to the locker room for further examination. He returned to the sideline later in the second quarter.

With Talib out, the Patriots will rely on Alfonzo Dennard, Logan Ryan and Kyle Arrington as their top cornerbacks against the Denver Broncos.
