Aqib Talib has slight groin strain; Morris suggests it's minor



Cornerback Aqib Talib left this morning's practice with a slight groin strain, but coach Raheem Morris downplayed the injury's severity.

Talib did not return after suffering the injury in the second half of practice.

"Nobody cares (about injuries)," Morris said. "Everybody's going to have tweaks right now. The whole NFL. Everybody going to have something hurting. . . Nobody cares."

Officially, the team is saying that Talib is considered day to day.

Elsewhere, defensive tackle Brian Price and cornerback Myron Lewis were out again with their respective hamstring injuries. General manager Mark Dominik said Price is getting better and has a chance to play at Miami on Saturday. According to Morris, Lewis will be worked in slowly in the coming days. It's probably too early to project his chances of playing against the Dolphins.
