Patriots cornerback Aqib Talib is likely going to miss at least another week as he recovers from a strained hip flexor, according to ProFootballTalk’s report.

Talib strained a hip flexor two weeks against against the Saints. He practiced on a limited basis on Friday before last week’s game against the Jets, for which he was listed as doubtful and didn’t play.

Talib has been practicing on a limited basis all week and is classified as questionable. While a more encouraging listing, ProFootballTalk’s report indicates that Talib will likely sit out another week, He won’t be able to help cover Miami’s Mike Wallace.

The Pats will continue to use Logan Ryan opposite Alfonzo Dennard in Talib’s absence.
