Tampa - The NFL has suspended Bucs Cornerback Aqib Talib for one game for punching a cab driver in 2009.
Talib met with Commissioner Roger Goodell and thought he might have escaped any suspension. Instead, the NFL waiting until Talib's case was settled in court.
So that means the Bucs will be without one of their best defensive players for the home season opener against Cleveland.
Keep in mind, Talib has kept his nose clean since that incident and hopefully there are no repeats of sudden anger.
