Perrish Cox's Alleged Sexual Assault: What Does It Mean For Sunday's Game

While Perrish Cox's status for Sunday's Denver Broncos game against the Arizona Cardinals has yet to be announced, the team will likely use D.J. Williams' Nov. 12 arrest for driving under the influence as a base for their decision. In that instance, the Broncos kept Williams out of first defensive series of the game. He then returned to the field at the start of the second defensive series.

Also related, cornerback Andre Goodman has had limited participation in practice this week and could start in place of Cox this weekend. However, we'll find out later today Goodman's final status for Sunday.

Thinking long term, Cox could face a league suspension if he is found guilty on these charges of sexual assault, which happened while Cox remained stateside to recover from a concussion. His teammates were in London for a game against the San Francisco 49ers.

Will the Broncos now make a strong push to re-sign Champ Bailey, who becomes a free agent at the end of the season?
