Talib, Dennard, Arrington limited at practice
By Mike Rodak
FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski (forearm/hip) and defensive tackle Kyle Love (not injury related) were the only two players who did not participate in Wednesday's walk-through practice, the team announced on its injury report.
Love and his wife were expecting the birth of their child today, according to Love's Twitter account.
In addition, the Patriots listed cornerbacks Aqib Talib (hip), Alfonzo Dennard (hamstring) and Kyle Arrington (knee) as limited in the non-contact practice. Talib and Dennard left Monday night's game and did not return, while Arrington was banged up after being hit by teammate Justin Francis, but returned for one play.
Linebacker Brandon Spikes (knee/ankle), who was not on the field for the final Texans drive of the game, continued to be listed as limited on the injury report, as has been the case for several weeks.
His late-game replacement, linebacker Tracy White, was added to the injury report as limited with an elbow injury. White had just been removed from the report last week after recovering from a foot injury.
