By Mike Rodak

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- New England Patriots defensive tackle Kyle Love left the first quarter of Sunday's AFC Championship Game against the Baltimore Ravens with a knee injury. The team announced his return as questionable.

Making his first start since Nov. 22 against the New York Jets, Love had been listed with a knee injury on the injury report from Week 4 through the end of the regular season.

Love briefly left for the locker room before returning to the sideline. He was replaced by Brandon Deaderick in the base defense.
