Aqib Talib loses his NFL suspension appeal, will not play Sunday

Denver, Colo. — The Broncos’ feisty cornerback Aqib Talib yesterday lost his appeal to the NFL to overturn his suspension for poking Indianapolis Colt tight end Dwayne Allen in the eye at the end of last Sunday’s game.
Talib, who also got mouthy with an official for a hand clap incident, will sit out this upcoming game with the Kansas City Chiefs. He will also forfeit his hefty paycheck for the game. Worse, he will not be allowed to be at the game.
Broncos have announced that Bradley Robey will step in to take Talib’s place. This means that the Broncos will be missing two of their major defensive players against the Chiefs.

Demarcus Ware, who is the Broncos’ major sacker, will be out with a back injury. Ware also did not play last week, when the Broncos lost to the Colts.
Linebacker Shane Ray, however, will be back in action this week.

Former Bronco and Patriot Wes Welker expected to play for St. Louis Rams Sunday against Chicago Bears

St. Louis, Mo. — Former Broncos wide receiver Wes Welker is expected to play this Sunday when the Rams play the Chicago Bears. Welker, who signed with the Rams Monday, is hoped to help the team improved their dismal third down conversion record.

Welker, who has caught passes for the best in the business — Tom Brady and Peyton Manning, has a sure set of hands and a fearless set of legs.

If Welker gets to play Sunday, it will be old home week with former Bronco head coach John Fox coaching the Bears.
Hope Rams quarterback Nick Foles can keep up with him.
