Though Patriots cornerback Aqib Talib shut down Saints tight end Jimmy Graham last Sunday and held him without a catch he suffered a hip flexor injury that forced him out toward the end of the game. Talib missed practice Wednesday and Thursday and despite the fact he practiced Friday for New England he's officially listed as doubtful to play vs. the Jets on Sunday. As the Boston Herald writes "He stopped in the middle of the team jogging portion of the workout to walk toward the area where the cornerbacks stretch together. It's uncharacteristic for a player to stop midway through that exercise so it was likely related to the hip." Even if Talib is not likely to play Jets coach Rex Ryan is apparently a big fan.
