Aqib Talib loses his appeal of the one-game Suspension without pay for poking the Colts tight end on Sunday. John Elway said, “Obviously, I’m very disappointed. We’re all very disappointed as a team that it was not reduced.” Talib is not allowed to attend any meetings or practices this week.
“Broncos cornerback Aqib Talib’s adventures in eye-poking on Sunday against the Colts will result in a suspension. The NFL notified Talib he has been suspended without pay for this Sunday’s game against the Kansas City Chiefs for his eye-poke of Colts tight end Dwayne Allen. The NFL said Talib violated safety-related playing rules with the action. Mike Klis of NBC-9 in Denver first reported the story. Talib lost his appeal of the suspension on Tuesday, NFL Media’s Rand Getlin reported. Talib appeared to poke Allen in the eye late in the Broncos’ 27-24 loss to the Colts, allowing the Colts to get a first down and essentially end the game.” – Reported by Gregg Rosenthal
