The Buccaneers got some good news on the injury front Tuesday, as cornerback Aqib Talib went through a "full battery" of practice, according to coach Raheem Morris, an encouraging sign he'll play Saturday against the Cowboys.
Talib left the Panthers game two weeks ago after the first series when he aggravated a nagging hamstring injury, and missed last week’s game against the Jaguars.
“He’s one of those guys that’s kind of different when it comes to healing and comes to getting better,” Morris said. “He’s fired up about playing.”
