ESPNAPI_IMG_NO_ALTEXT_Value

DENVER -- New England Patriots cornerback Aqib Talib is questionable to return to the AFC Championship Game after suffering a rib injury in the second quarter Sunday.

Talib collided with former Patriots wide receiver Wes Welker on a play over the middle, sending him to the ground and eventually out of the game.

Talib received attention from medical staffers on the sideline before heading back to the locker room for further examination. He returned to the sideline later in the second quarter.

Talib, New England's top cornerback, was a second-team All-Pro selection this season and was named to his first Pro Bowl.

With Talib out, the Patriots will rely on Alfonzo Dennard, Logan Ryan and Kyle Arrington as their top cornerbacks against the Denver Broncos.
