Patriots CB Talib leaves with hip injury

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) -- New England Patriots cornerback Aqib Talib has left Monday night's game against the Houston Texans with a hip injury.

The Patriots say Talib is questionable to return.

Talib was hurt when he dived to knock away a pass across the middle late in the first half.

The Patriots acquired Talib from the Tampa Bay Buccaneers last month while he was serving a four-game suspension for violating the NFL's policy on performance-enhancing substances.

He had a 59-yard interception return for a touchdown against the Indianapolis Colts on Nov. 18, his first game for New England.
