New England Patriots CB Aqib Talib escapes without structural damage
The hit Wes Welker delivered on Aqib Talib during Sunday’s AFC title game may have been the worst play Bill Belichick has ever seen, but the participants escaped mostly unscathed.
While the hit knocked Talib out of the game, the cornerback suffered no structural damage to his knee and was “just banged up,” according to a Masslive.com.
Talib, who was playing on a one-year deal, emerged as one of the NFL’s better cornerbacks and will likely be sought after if New England fails to sign him to a new contract. The All-Pro can become an unrestricted free agent in March.
