Denver Broncos' Perrish Cox Arrested For Sexual Assault

In a developing story, the Denver Post's Mike Klis reports that the Denver Broncos' Perrish Cox was arrested on Thursday night for a possible sexual assault in Lone Tree. No details have emerged yet, but let's remember that he is innocent until proven guilty.

[UPDATE] The above-linked Post article now states that this incident was first brought to the attention of the Lone Tree police on Oct. 28.

Cox's status for Sunday's game will likely be known later today. Fellow Bronco D.J. Williams did not start the game against the Chiefs following his DUI arrest in November.

According to a statement released by the Denver Broncos on Friday morning, the team is aware of the situation and following their process on such matters.

Cox played college football for the Oklahoma State Cowboys before being drafted by the Denver Broncos in the 5th round of the 2010 NFL Draft. Cox has played in 11 of the team's 12 games this season and accumulated 45 total tackles, a forced fumble and an interception. With all the injuries the Broncos have experienced this season, Cox has filled in as a starter and held his own.
