Talib will not face discipline after being involved in an off-field incident in 2016, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports. Talib was involved in a shooting incident in June of 2016 during which he clipped himself in the leg. He will be required to undergo a firearm safety course, but will not receive a suspension or fine for the incident. Talib was ranked the league's No. 1 cornerback by Pro Football Focus entering Thanksgiving weekend last season, despite missing three games with a lower-back injury, and is a big reason why the Broncos were the NFL's best pass defense last year with 185.8 yards allowed per game through the air.
Talib (back) was removed from the Broncos' injury report Friday. Talib practiced in full Friday and is now set to play for the first time since Week 7.
Talib (back) was a full participant in Monday's practice, The Denver Post reports. Talib has missed three games with a back injury but returned to practice last week. Now participating without limitation, he appears to have a legitimate chance of making a return this Sunday against the Chiefs.
Talib (back) returned to practice Tuesday, Cameron Wolfe of The Denver Post reports. Talib is on track to return to game action in Week 12 after missing the Broncos' last three contests with a back injury. Denver will be on a bye in Week 11, giving him even more time to be fully prepared for Nov. 27's matchup against the Chiefs.
Head coach Gary Kubiak stated Monday that he feels good about Talib's (back) chances to return following their Week 11 bye, Lindsay Jones of USA Today Sports reports. Talib has been sidelined the previous three games as he has dealt with a back injury. The veteran appears on track for a return in Week 12, but his status should still be checked on following their bye week. Kayvon Webster figures to be in line to start at corner if Talib is not ready to return.
