(Nov. 9, 2015)– The NFL suspended Denver Broncos cornerback Aqib Talib Monday after an eye poking incident against the Colts Sunday.

According to NFL.com, the league notified Talib that he faces a one-game suspension. Talib will reportedly appeal the suspension.

Colts tight end Dwayne Allen was poked in the eye and Talib was called for a personal foul. The Colts got a first down and were able to run the clock out.

Neither team has issued a statement yet on the reported suspension.

Update:  The NFL has thrown out Talib’s appeal and he’ll serve his one game suspension Sunday against the Chiefs.
