The injury inflicted by the allegedly deliberate hit from Broncos receiver Wes Welker on Patriots cornerback Aqib Talib isn’t as bad as it could have been.

According to Nick Underhill of, Talib has no structural damage in his knee. Instead, an unnamed source told Underhill that Talib was “just banged up.”

Talib is due to become a free agent on March 11. He hit the market last year, but he signed a one-year deal to return to New England, which traded for him during the 2012 regular season.
