Aqib Talib practiced in a limited fashion Wednesday, though local reporters told NFL Media's Albert Breer that the corner did not look close to 100 percent while toughing it out through a hip flexor strain.
The injury remains a concern, Breer explained Wednesday on NFL Network's "Around the League Primetime" because it's the same issue that plagued Talib at the end of last year. The hip flexor problem actually goes back to Talib's days with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
"I think he's playing outstanding football right now," Woodson added. "And I think as far as cornerbacks go, he's the best guy in the league right now."
Here are the rest of the injury updates from around the league:
- Talib's teammate, Danny Amendola, participated in Wednesday's practice after starting the concussion protocol on Monday. The receiver has yet to be cleared for game action, however.
- Calvin Johnson sat out Wednesday's practice, ostensibly for rest purposes after playing well in last week's game.
- Larry Fitzgerald was a full participant in practice, a sign that the receiver's hamstrings are getting closer to 100 percent.
