NFL Notes: Aqib Talib, Bills, Cowboys & Dolphins

Aqib Talib

Broncos CB Aqib Talib he was really concerned and wasn’t sure he’d be able to walk again after he was shot several months ago in Dallas.

“It was scary as (expletive),” Talib told Mike Silver of NFL.com. “I mean, I really don’t want to talk about that part, but there was a time when I was riding to the hospital, and I didn’t know what was wrong with me — I didn’t know how long I was gonna be out; I didn’t know if I was gonna walk again; I didn’t know anything.

“I was definitely doing a lot of praying in that car, and God blessed the real believers, man. I was praying and praying… and, man, there was a lot going on.”

Bills

  • Bills HC Rex Ryan said there will be an “immediate” change in what their offense does “tactically” under new OC Anthony Lynn, but they are keeping the verbiage the same. (Mike Rodak)
  • Ryan didn’t commit to WR Sammy Watkins playing in Sunday’s game against the Cardinals but said that his situation will be “similar” to last week. (Mike Rodak)
  • Ryan mentioned that they’re hoping to get LT Cordy Glenn (ankle) back for Week 3. (Chris Brown)

Cowboys

Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said Tony Romo (back) had a “really good” exam before Sunday’s game against the Redskins.

“He’s in that stage right now,” Jones said, via the Star-Telegram. “Hopefully, soon, he’ll be out of the danger stage relative to his spine – probably 2-3 more weeks and we can see how far he wants to go by his own volition.

Jones was asked if rookie Dak Prescott could delay them bringing Romo back based on his play.

If Prescott continues to impress, could the Cowboys be more patient with Romo?

Not necessarily. Not necessarily,” Jerry Jones said. “Tony’s situation when he’s back will be about whether he’s functional. We’re a better team. We play better [with Romo].

Dolphins

  • According to Adam Schefter, Dolphins RB Arian Foster is scheduled to undergo an MRI on his groin today, but the team does not believe the injury is overly serious.
