Denver Broncos CB Aqib Talib was officially reinstated from the reserve/suspended list on Monday, according to the NFL transactions release.
Talib received a one-game suspension for poking Colts TE Dwayne Allen in the eye, which resulted in a personal foul that all but sealed the game for Indianapolis.
Broncos HC Gary Kubiak previously said of Talib’s actions: “He’s wrong. He needs to stay out of the situation. And he knows that.”
However, Kubiak added: “I’m convinced after taking with Aqib he had no intention of poking anyone in the eye.”
Talib, 29, is in the second year of his six-year, $57 million contract that included $26 million guaranteed. He stands to make a base salary of $5.5 million this season and another $8.5 million next year.
This year, Talib has appeared in eight games and recorded 20 tackles, three interceptions including two touchdowns and eight pass defenses for the Broncos.
