Horse Tracks: Police release report on Aqib Talib incident

Happy fourth of July weekend!

Brad Penner-USA TODAY Sports

Remember the Aqib Talib off the field incident where he ended up getting shot in the leg? Von Miller's contract nonsense and the quarterback talk has made us overlook that a bit recently, but we got an update on what happened that night on Friday.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport tweeted out on Friday that he has obtained the full incident report for Aqib Talib's shooting in early June.

The Dallas Police Department stated that an "unknown suspect shot the complainant.", and a witness told police that he only heard a single gunshot that night. The witness then said that he found Talib on the ground and took him to the hospital that night.

As we know, the bullet entered Talib's right thigh and exited his right calf. While the injury sounds bad, but he escaped with only minor injuries.

One new nugget of info came out of this report. The police found a gram of marijuana that night, but no one was charged with possession.

While no charges have been filed from the incident, the NFL is continuing to investigate the situation and Talib doesn't have to be charged with anything to receive discipline from the NFL.

As for his injury, Denver Broncos Head Coach Gary Kubiak said "our goal is to have him ready for camp, like all these guys.'', but the status of Talib's knee remains unknown at this time.

So this report really didn't shed too much light on what happened, and we still have more questions than answers, but it's an update nonetheless.
