Although the Denver Broncos expect Aqib Talib to fully recover from the gunshot wounds he suffered in his right leg Sunday morning, the star cornerback will miss the final two weeks of offseason practices.
On Tuesday morning, the Dallas Police Department released their initial report of the incident.
The Broncos go on a month-long vacation following their final organized team activity (OTA) practice June 16, so even if it takes six to eight weeks for Talib to fully recover, his return would be sometime between the start of training camp in late-July or the week of their first preseason game Aug. 11 at Chicago.
WFAA-TV in Dallas, citing the Dallas Police report, said the bullet entered through the rear of Talib’s right thigh and exited out his right calf. Talib spent two nights in a Dallas hospital because of the gunshot wounds but was released Monday afternoon.
Talib has told people close to him he accidently shot himself, but police are still investigating the matter. WFAA reported Talib told police he was hanging out at a park with friends when he was shot at about 3:40 a.m. Sunday.
“Everything was a blur and I was too intoxicated to remember what happened,” Talib told police, according to WFAA.
Police are looking into whether Talib was shot at a Dallas nightclub V Live, where two other people were shot.
Police identified the other two shooting victims of an “unknown suspect” as Glen Lumpkin and Vernon White.
However, Dallas Police have yet to formally release the case report involving Talib.
