NFL suspends Aqib Talib for one game for eye poke, to appeal
Denver Broncos cornerback Aqib Talib has been suspended for Sunday's game against the Kansas City Chiefs for forcefully poking an opponent in the eye after a play. NFL vice president of football operations Merton Hanks ruled that Talib’s action placed his opponent at unnecessary risk of injury and should have been avoided. Talib is appealing the suspension. It will be heard by either Derrick Brooks or James Thrash. Follow me on Twitter: @AaronWilson_NFL Aaron Wilson covers the Texans for The Houston Chronicle.
