Talib suspended one game

We won't see Talib in Week One.

Bad news strikes Tampa Bay once again, this time it comes in the form of starting cornerback Aqib Talib facing a one game suspension issued by the NFL. The suspension is for violating the league’s personal-conduct policy.

The decision to suspend the former first round pick stems from Talib’s arrest last year after he allegedly hit a cab driver. The Kansas alum entered a diversion program that included anger management classes.

Luckily, the Bucs are facing the Cleveland Browns Week One, a team that isn’t much of a threat through the air. However, his absence still hurts the Bucs’ defense all around, and with him out of the lineup, Vanderbilt rookie Myron Lewis will get a shot to prove his worth in the season opener.
