FOXBOROUGH — Cornerback Aqib Talib practiced Friday for the first time this week and was listed by the team as doubtful to play against the Jets.
Talib left last week’s game with a hip injury, did not return, then missed practice Wednesday and Thursday.
It would be rare — but not unprecedented — for someone who practiced only one day, with limited participation, to play in that weekend’s game.
Three Patriots were ruled out for Sunday: receiver Danny Amendola, who also missed the first Jets game with a groin injury, and didn’t practice this week after sustaining a concussion against the Saints; defensive tackle Tommy Kelly (knee); and running back Leon Washington (ankle).
If Talib doesn’t play, the Patriots will be without three of their top defensive players. Defensive tackle Vince Wilfork (Achilles’) and linebacker Jerod Mayo (torn pectoral muscle) are out for the season. Full story for BostonGlobe.com subscribers.
