Gunshot Missed Denver Broncos CB Aqib Talib’s Arteries, Ligaments; Only Stitches Needed
Denver Broncos cornerback Aqib Talib is a lucky man to only have minor injuries after being shot in the leg at a Dallas nightclub early Sunday morning.
Via ESPN’s Adam Schefter:
“Broncos CB Aqib Talib is one lucky man. Bullet entered and exited his leg. Hit no arteries, tore no ligaments. Talib got stitches, no surgery.”
At this point of the investigation, it seems very likely that Aqib Talib may have indeed shot himself accidentally.
“Indeed, one of the first rumors making the rounds among players after news broke of the incident was that Talib shot himself. As of Sunday, the possibility of a self-shooting was being explored by the Broncos, according to a source with knowledge of the situation.”
