Aqib Talib only needed stitches after getting shot at Dallas nightclub

BY foxsports • June 6, 2016

The Denver Broncos visited the White House on Monday to be honored for winning Super Bowl 50, which should be a completely joyous occasion for everyone in the organization.

Unfortunately, that wasn't possible since cornerback Aqib Talib was not with the team after getting shot early Sunday morning at a Dallas nightclub.

After a fight broke out at the club, Talib was shot in the lower right leg (there were two others gunshot victims who suffered a non-life-threatening wound).

Thankfully, Talib turned out to be relatively fine, as the Broncos' VP of PR tweeted on Sunday:

On Monday, we learned just how lucky Talib actually was. As Adam Schefter reported, the bullet did hardly any damage and Talib needed only stitches.
