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.

Talib (leg) is expected to make a full recovery after suffering a gunshot wound in his lower right leg early Sunday morning, The Denver Post reports.

EDGE Analysis

Talib reportedly told police he was too intoxicated to remember what happened, which has led to speculation he may have accidentally shot himself. In any case, he's expected to miss most or all of Denver's remaining OTAs, but the injury didn't require surgery, so he may still be fine for training camp. Assuming no complications, Talib is expected to reprise his role as the starter across from Chris Harris, with 2014 first-rounder Bradley Roby serving as the nickelback. Few teams, if any, have a comparable group of corners.

Talib collected 45 tackles, three interceptions, 13 passes defended and two touchdowns in 2015. He added 14 tackles and six passes defended in the playoffs.

EDGE Analysis

Talib started off the season on fire, with three picks, two of which were returned for touchdowns, in Denver's first six games. He never hauled in another pass for the rest of the season and missed Denver's worst game of the year - Week 10 versus Kansas City - after poking Dwayne Allen in the eye in Week 9. Talib, combined with Chris Harris Jr., T.J. Ward and Bradley Roby is a major factor in Denver's "No Fly Zone," often taking on the opposition's most physical receiver. Talib's ball skills makes him a constant threat to take one back to the house. Is tendency to play a tad out of control makes a potential suspension right around the corner.

Talib's one-game suspension stemming from his actions near the end of Sunday's loss at Indianapolis was upheld Tuesday, Mike Klis of 9 News Denver reports.

EDGE Analysis

Talib interfered with an confrontation between teammate Von Miller and the Colts' Dwayne Allen, whose eye the cornerback poked in the process. Now that the suspension is confirmed, the Broncos will be without both Talib and DeMarcus Ware (back) on Sunday against the Chiefs. In Talib's place, the Broncos will turn to Bradley Roby at cornerback, while Kayvon Webster will cover nickleback.

Talib is in line to be suspended for one game for poking tight end Dwayne Allen in the eye during Sunday's loss to the Colts, 9news.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

While Talib plans to appeal the ruling, at this stage it looks like the Denver defense will be minus two key cogs in Week 10, with star outside linebacker DeMarcus Ware expected to miss 2-4 weeks of action.

Talub had two tackles and returned an interception 63 yards for a touchdown Sunday against the Browns.

EDGE Analysis

Talib has been excellent this season, as he has actually scored as many touchdowns as running backs C.J. Anderson (zero) and Ronnie Hillman (two) combined. His three interceptions are just one fewer than he's had in both of the last two seasons, though his tackle total is off pace from last season's 64. Up next is a huge Week 8 game against the Packers following the Broncos' Week 7 bye.

Talib (ankle) is active Sunday against the Browns.

EDGE Analysis

Taleb suffered the injury last weekend against the Raiders, which held him out of practice Thursday and Friday, but he'll give it a go Sunday, as he'll get extra time to recover with the Broncos off in Week 7.
