Aqib Talib could face repercussions for a shooting incident this past weekend. As he recovers from the gunshot wound he sustained in unclear circumstances, the NFL is "looking into" into the incident, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Texas laws might factor in, as well. From ESPN's report:

Carrying a weapon in public without a license into a place that sells alcohol is considered a Class 3 felony. It is a Class A misdemeanor to possess a weapon while intoxicated in Texas (there is no official indication he was intoxicated on the night of the incident), and punishment carries a year in jail. It is a Class B misdemeanor to discharge a weapon in public, and punishment carries up to six months in jail.

If Talib had a license, he could be charged with two of these crimes; if he didn't, it's possible he could be charged with all three.

To be clear, it's unknown at this time if Talib violated any of those laws, because the facts surrounding the incident are still murky.

According to WFAA-TV in Dallas, Talib told police that he was too drunk to remember what actually happened. WFAA-TV also reported that the "bullet entered through rear of Aqib Talib's right thigh and exited out his right calf." As 9News in Denver reported later, Talib told those close to him that he shot himself on accident.

It's not even clear where the shooting took place. According to WFAA-TV, Talib told police he was shot at a park. However, a shooting occurred at a nightclub at the same time and police are investigating if that's where the incident in question actually transpired. Talib was released from the hospital Monday and should be at the Broncos' facility Wednesday, as NFL.com reported. His injuries are not believed to be serious.

If Talib faces disciplinee for the incident, the Broncos will miss his presence on the field. Last season, Talib picked off three passes and notched 13 passes defended, playing a significant role in the Broncos' Super Bowl season and earning a Pro Bowl roster spot.
