After a full week of preparation for the New York Jets, CB Aqib Talib was listed as doubtful for Sunday's game against their AFC East rivals. Talib had not practiced until yesterday, and even then, he was limited.
Field Yates of ESPNBoston.com reports that Talib did not travel with the team and obviously will not appear on Sunday. After losing NT Vince Wilfork and LB Jerod Mayo to season ending injuries, Talib becomes the third key defensive starter to miss time due to an injury.
According to Yates, the Patriots will start Alfonzo Dennard and Kyle Arrington Sunday, while rookie Logan Ryan should take over Arrington's place as the nickelback.
Meanwhile, after news broke that Rob Gronkowski was finally cleared to play, Yahoo! Sports reports that Gronkowski did travel with the team to New York. Gronkowski is officially listed as questionable but is expected to play.
