Denver Broncos cornerback Aqib Talib 'OK' after being shot at nightclub


According to multiple reports, Talib was injured at a nightclub early Sunday morning in Dallas, where he has an off-season home.

The bullet entered his right thigh and exited his right calf, according to the WFAA report.

"The only thing I'm concerned about right now is his health", coach Gary Kubiak said Tuesday as the Broncos began their three-day mandatory minicamp.

The 30-year-old was treated at a Dallas hospital Sunday and remained there overnight before being discharged Monday.

Talib told people that the wound is minor and requires only stitches and medical cleanup, not major surgery, sources told Rapoport.

The athlete is listed as the complainant in the incident, which cites the offense as aggravated assault with an MO stating, "UNKNOWN SUSP SHOT COMPS CAUSING INJURY". However, he is not expected to participate much, if at all, in the remainder of the team's organized team activities.

"I talked to him briefly," linebacker Von Miller said.

If Broncos cornerback Aqib Talib carried a gun into a nightclub, he may have violated a Texas law that went into effect January the 1st.

A year ago, he made $5.5 million minus one game check of $323,529 after being suspended for deliberately poking an Indianapolis Colts player in the eye after a play the previous week.

In the post-season, Talib had 13 tackles in three games with no interceptions and six pass deflections. Those fouls included a 15-yard unsportsmanlike conduct penalty for taunting and a 15-yard personal foul penalty for grabbing Corey Brown's facemask and violently slamming the wide receiver to the ground.

For the Broncos, this is yet another troubling incident involving Talib.
