Bucs' Aqib Talib sidelined with hamstring injury vs. Dolphins



Cornerback Aqib Talib, who was expected to make his preseason debut tonight against the Dolphins, won't play in the game because of his hamstring injury.

Talib is one of three inactive players for the Bucs tonight. Defensive tackle Roy Miller (knee) and S Ahmad Black (foot) are the others.

Talib is of several players facing likely league suspensions for conduct that violated league policy during the lockout. The Bucs say his absence tonight is not related to any expectation that he'll be suspended.

While Talib was making progress with the hamstring injury, it appears he suffered a setback this week.
