For the second straight week, a first-quarter injury has affected the Patriots.
Last week, it was running back Danny Woodhead and tight end Rob Gronkowski who left early. This week, it’s cornerback Aqib Talib who is heading to the locker room, with an apparent hamstring injury.
The Pats lead, 3-0. They’re driving for more.
Maybe they’ll build a 17-point lead and then blow it.
UPDATE 7:21 p.m. ET: Talib is questionable to return with what the Pats are calling a thigh injury. Replays show clearly that Talib was grabbing his hamstring after the play on which he suffered the injury.
