Former Kansas Player: Talib Suspended Four Games


Former Kansas Jayhawks cornerback Aqib Talib was suspended by the NFL for using a banned substance.

Talib, now with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers will miss tomorrow’s game vs the Kansas City Chiefs, and the next three games after. The Buccaneers face New Orleans, Minnesota, and Oakland. Talib becomes available again on Nov. 5th, the day after the Buccaneers face the Raiders.

The fifth-year pro was suspended for using Adderall pill without a prescription around the start of training camp. Talib has 18 career interceptions and had been having a great season for the Buccaneers. He has one interception and seven passes defensed so far for the team. This is Talib’s second suspension of his career. He was suspended for the 2010 season opener after an altercation with a taxi cab driver in St. Petersburg, Florida.

Tampa Bay now has a glaring hole at the spot with E.J. Biggers and Myron Lewis as the likely replacements for the team.  The Buccaneers will look to end a three-game slide in their game with the Chiefs tomorrow at home.
