DALLAS -- Broncos cornerback Aqib Talib was reportedly one of two people shot during a fight overnight in a nightclub in Dallas, according to multiple sources.

The shooting occurred at the Vlive club in Dallas after a fight late Saturday night.

The two victims were taken to a local hospital with non-life-threatening injuries, according to the Dallas Morning News.

NBC Sports reports that Talib has been hospitalized at Medical City Hospital.

In a statement from the Broncos, “We are in communication with Aqib Talib, who remains at a Dallas hospital for observation as he recovers from a gunshot wound suffered to his lower right leg on Sunday. He is expected to be released from the hospital soon, and we are glad he is OK and will make a full recovery. Our organization has been in touch with the NFL on this matter, and we will provide additional updates as appropriate."

The Broncos are scheduled to go to the White House Monday morning.

Talib is expected to be released from the hospital Monday but will not be joining the rest of the team in Washington D.C., according to Patrick Smyth, the Broncos' VP of Public Relations.

It's unknown if any arrests were made in the shootings.

Talib and his brother had been under investigation for an alleged assault last year at another Dallas nightclub. Authorities dropped the investigation a month later and no charges were filed.

Talib, 30, has played the last two seasons with the Denver Broncos,  signing with them in March 2014 for a six-year, $54 million deal.
