Dominik: Aqib Talib practicing fully again

Bucs cornerback Aqib Talib is healthy again at just the right time.

Bucs G.M. Mark Dominik said on PFT Live that Talib participated “100 percent” in practice on Wednesday, and Talib is fully expected to start the season opener after missing the entire preseason. ┬áTalib hasn’t played since early December 2010.

Talib versus Calvin Johnson is one of the best matchups of the weekend.

“He’s one of the top guys in the league,” Talib told the St. Petersburg Times. “Slash, digs, jump balls, boy can do it all.”

Coach Raheem Morris said he isn’t worried about Talib not playing in August.

“He’s a game-day guy, a show-up-and-play type of guy. He’ll be ready to go,” Morris said.

Seeing Talib “ready to go” as a member of the Bucs is something that a lot of people didn’t expect after a tumultuous offseason.

UPDATE: Here’s a clip of Dominik talking about Talib from the show.

    Talib is not worried. If he gets burned, he’ll just get his Mom too shoot at CJ.

    This turd should be out of the league completely.

    Your boy Goodell didn’t think so. Like most other Americans, lets see what the jury has to say.

    Hopefully he doesn’t tip Megatron any TD catches like he did for Mike Wallace last year…smh

    There is NO WAY this guy is just going to show up after missing all of August and man up against Megatron. He is either going to be getting some help, or he is going to get dominated.

    You can say that about any corner in the league. No corner can shut down Megatron by himself. even with help he is tough to even slow down. Beast.

    Man that is dedication. He is already practicing for the 2012 season after he gets suspended.

    Yah I know he is not getting suspended but he should be.
