Aqib Talib to miss the rest of the Broncos offseason work because of his injury

The next time we see Talib with the Broncos will be Training Camp...hopefully.

According to 9NEWS Denver's Mike Klis, Denver Broncos cornerback Aqib Talib will miss the rest of the Broncos offseason work after suffering a minor gunshot wound to the right leg.

The Broncos final offseason practice is on June 16th and then they have a five week vacation period before Training Camp begins sometime in late July. This would give Talib a solid two months to heal up and be ready for Camp.

As we all know by know, Talib suffered a gunshot wound sometime Saturday night, and according to Klis, Talib has told people close to him that he accidently shot himself.  However, WFAA-TV in Dallas is reporting that Talib told the Dallas Police Department that he and a large group of people were hanging out in a park before they were shot at. There are also reports stating that Talib told the police that he was "too drunk to know who shot him". Police are also looking into if Talib was at a Dallas Nightclub where two other people were shot that same night. So does anyone really know what happened?

Rebecca Lopez of WFAA-TV is saying that the bullet entered the rear of Talib's right thigh and exited out of his right calf. This seems to point to Talib accidently shooting himself, but again who knows what really happened that night?

According to Klis, the Dallas Police have yet to release their findings of this case so more information should come public sometime in the near future.

All we know now is that Talib will miss the final practices of OTA's and maybe he will be back for Training Camp. This will give corners Kayvon Webster and 2015 fifth round pick Lorenzo Doss figure to pick up some extra reps in Talib's absence.
