Talib injures hip; return questionable

12/10/2012

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- New England Patriots cornerback Aqib Talib suffered a hip injury late in the second quarter of Monday night's game against the Houston Texans and is questionable to return to the game, the team announced.

Talib suffered the injury while diving to break up a third-down pass from Texans quarterback Matt Schaub intended for receiver Andre Johnson. He walked off the field under his own power.

He was not initially on the field to start the second half, but soon emerged from the locker room and began jogging on the sideline, likely testing the injury.

Acquired in a trade on Nov. 1, Talib has started the previous four games for the Patriots, including Monday night's contest.
