Talib tallied two tackles and two passes defended in Sunday's win over Indianapolis. He put the Broncos ahead by two scores with a 46-yard interception return for a touchdown in the fourth quarter.

EDGE Analysis

Talib has long been respected for his ball skills, but he's now entering rarefied air. The pick six was Talib's fifth as a Bronco - setting a team record in just 32 regular season games. It also marked the ninth of his career, tying him for fourth all time with Pro Football Hall of Famers Deion Sanders, Ken Houston and Aeneas Williams.

The Broncos are denying reports that Talib is available via trade, The Denver Post reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Broncos have tried getting ahead of this rumor, but there is some logic to it. Talib's antics make him unpredictable and Bradley Roby's emergence makes his nearly $10 million salary somewhat expendable. On the other hand - the No Fly Zone will be called on to help carry the team, and Talib is the bunch's most dynamic playmaker. It would be a shock to see Talib change jerseys unless there is some monumental offer out there.

Talib (leg) returned to practice Wednesday, Mike Klis of 9news reports.

EDGE Analysis

Talib's roller coaster offseason seems to finally be approaching a halt. His leg is near 100 percent, and after a report earlier this week indicating that Talib is likely to play on Saturday, there is reason to be optimistic in Denver. The Broncos have a plethora of stability issues at the moment, so seeing Talib back on the practice field Wednesday has to be reassuring for coach Gary Kubiak and company.

Talib (leg) is expected to play in Saturday's matchup with the Rams.

EDGE Analysis

Talib began training camp on the non-football injury list after suffering a gunshot wound to the leg in June, and, though he's practiced, he has yet to play in a preseason tilt. He's unquestionably one of the team's top two corner backs and will start opposite Chris Harris during the regular season. It's yet to be determined if Talib will start on Saturday if he does indeed play.

Talib (leg) will practice Monday for the first time since training camp started, NFL Network reports.

EDGE Analysis

Talib has been on the Broncos' non-football injury list since the start of camp after suffering a gunshot wound to his leg back in June. Since then, Denver stood by its belief that Talib would be ready in time for the regular season, which seems to be a lock at this point. While Talib could be somewhat limited upon his return to the practice field, his leg should be of little concern once Week 1 arrives.

Talib can begin practicing again on a limited basis next week, 9news.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Unlike a sprained ankle or fractured arm, the return time from gunshot wounds to the leg aren't easy to predict. The fact that Talib is getting any work in a full month before the season starts should diminish any concerns that he won't be ready to go come Week 1. Once he get back up to playing full time, Talib has a lot riding on this season. The Broncos will see reduced penalties in cutting Talib after this season, essentially making his contract a year-to-year arrangement.

Talib (foot) will begin training camp on the non-football injury list, James Palmer of NFL Network reports.

EDGE Analysis

Talib was expected to be ready for the start of training camp, but the leg he injured in a shooting incident in June appears to still be impacting him. In any case, he isn't expected to miss any time once the regular season rolls around.

Talib (leg) "should be" ready to return for the Broncos' training camp, The Denver Post reports.

EDGE Analysis

Talib, who suffered a gunshot wound to the leg last month, recently said he's back to running and "feels great" as training camp approaches. Despite his positive self-report, Talib could still start camp on the Broncos' PUP list until he's determined to be 100 percent, but more should be known once he reports and can be evaluated by the team. In any case, it appears Talib should at least be ready for the beginning of the regular season, representing a relief for Denver's defense.

The Broncos do not believe Talib (leg) will miss any time in the regular season because of the gunshot wound he suffered this offseason, The Denver Post reports.

EDGE Analysis

Talib has progressed in his recovery without setbacks, weaning off crutches in June and aiming to be back by training camp. A cornerstone of the Denver defense (no pun intended), Talib's return will go a long way in helping the Broncos repeat as the stingiest team in the league against the pass; Denver allowed just 3,193 yards through the air in 2015, roughly 170 yards better than second-place Seattle.

As details of Talib's (leg) shooting incident become clearer, the corner could face league or legal discipline Denver Post reports.

EDGE Analysis

Talib was fortunate to avoid serious injury, but it is possible that he could miss time for the Broncos anyway. Rumors are circulating that Talib accidently shot himself and - if he was intoxciated - he could have violated Texas law. Even if he avoids charges, his past indiscretions could lead to a suspension. There are a ton of moving parts in this case, but Talib's health is just one factor. Should he miss any time, 2014 first-round pick Bradley Roby figures to see an increased workload.
