News: 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.
Impact: On Sunday, Talib interfered with a confrontation between teammate Von Miller and the Colts' Dwayne Allen, whose eye was poked by the cornerback 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.

News: 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.
Impact: 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-to-4 weeks of action.

News: Talib will sit out the Denver Broncos' game against the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday after losing his appeal of a one-game suspension for poking a player in the eye.
Impact: NFL spokesman Michael Signora said Talib's punishment was upheld Tuesday by Derrick Brooks. He's one of two officers jointly appointed by the NFL and the NFLPA to decide appeals of on-field player discipline. The Pro Bowl cornerback has a troubled past, including a four-game suspension in 2012 for violating the league's policy on performance enhancing substances.
