DALLAS — New video and photos obtained by TMZ Sports shows Broncos cornerback Aqib Talib at the hospital after shooting himself in June.
The photos show bandages on Talib’s right thigh and calf. Reports said Talib shot himself through the thigh and the bullet struck his calf.
After initially telling police he was shot, he later admitted to shooting himself, according to a letter that his attorney, Frank Perez, sent Dallas police and obtained by WFAA.
“Mr. Talib stated he was disoriented and was on morphine and that the police wouldn’t let him see his family,” Perez wrote, according to WFAA. “And the thought of losing his football career that he just said he was shot.”
Talib wasn’t charged by police, but the NFL has been looking into the incident.
