Super Bowl LI Odds 6/6/16 – Aqib Talib shot in the leg

Aqib Talib was shot in the leg on Saturday, but seems to have avoided serious injury and will be able to return to the Denver Broncos soon.

ESPN’s Adam Schefter and Ed Werder have reported on the story and state that Talib was shot at a nightclub early Sunday in Dallas. The bullet reportedly entered and exited his leg while avoiding arteries and ligaments. A team source told ESPN that Talib wouldn’t require surgery and that they didn’t believe Talib suffered a serious injury.
