According to the Broncos Vice President of Public Relations Patrick Smyth, Denver Broncos cornerback Aqib Talib will spend the night at the Hospital and be released on Monday. However, he will not make the trip to Washington D.C. to visit the White House and meet President Obama.

As we know, Talib suffered a minor gunshot wound to his right leg this weekend, and according to the Denver Posts Troy Renck, he will avoid having surgery.

The Broncos released a statement saying Talib would be "OK" and that they have been in touch with the NFL.

"We are in communication with Aqib Talib, who remains at a Dallas hospital for observation as he recovers from a gunshot wound suffered to his lower right leg on Sunday. He is expected to be released from the hospital soon, and we are glad he is OK and will make a full recovery.

Our organization has been in touch with the NFL on this matter, and we will provide additional updates as appropriate."

Details are still emerging from this incident and it is still unclear if Talib will receive any punishment from the NFL and/or from the Broncos because of this incident.

I'm sure we will have a better idea of what happened on Saturday night in the next 24 or 48 hours.

Right now, all we can be thankful for that Talib only suffered a minor gunshot wound to his leg and not something more serious. Lets hope for a healthy and speedy recovery from Talib and that nothing else comes from this story.
