EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. — The Patriots will be without their top cornerback on Sunday.
New England ruled Aqib Talib and safety Tavon Wilson out against the Jets. Talib is dealing with a hip injury, suffered last Sunday against the Saints. Wilson has a hamstring injury. Neither player made the trip to New York.
Talib missed practice on Wednesday and Thursday. He was back on the practice field for Friday’s session, but he did not appear at full speed.
Last week, the Patriots used Devin McCourty and Logan Ryan at cornerback in Talib’s place. When McCourty moved down to cornerback, rookie Duron Harmon played safety.

While it still appears unlikely that Aqib Talib will play on Sunday versus the New York Jets, it is very encouraging news that Aqib Talib was spotted participating during the media portion of practice on Friday.

Who deserves more credit for last week's win? The Patriots defense for shutting down Jimmy Graham or the offense for executing the miraculous game-winning drive?
Jason: The defense deserves all of the credit, hands down. It wasn't just the fact that they shut down Graham. They were put in two different tough situations where giving up a first down would have been game...
