Aqib Talib has been suspended one game for poking the eye of Colts tight end Dwayne Allen, 9News and ESPN are reporting.
NFL is suspending Broncos CB Aqib Talib for one game for eye poke, as @MikeKlis reported. Talib is appealing.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) November 9, 2015
Talib's eye-poke came near the end of Denver's 27-24 loss to the Colts and cost the Broncos a comeback opportunity.
Talib denied that the move was intentional. "You think I play football to poke people in the eye?" Talib said, via The Denver Post. "It was an honest mistake."
Honestly, Talib's denial is a claim that strains credulity.
"You guys ever played football?" said Talib. "You ever lost, at the end of the game? If you can remember back at how that feels, that's how I felt. I was just mad, man. It was the heat of the moment."
Talib will appeal the suspension.
