Report: Broncos Cox arrested for sexual assault

Posted by Will Brinson

Things in Denver were supposed to at least calm down a little with Josh McDaniels' drama removed from the area. But on Friday, the Broncos got a piece of bad news as Perrish Cox, a rookie and a starting cornerback, was arrested for sexual assault.

That's according to Mike Klis of the Denver Post who reports that Cox was arrested at 10 PM by Lone Tree police and is currently in the Douglas County Detention Center.

Cox was a fifth-round choice for Denver (137th overall) in the 2010 NFL Draft out of Oklahoma State. He's now also -- pending confirmation of the arrest by the team and the bearing out of all allegations, of course -- another black mark on Josh McDaniels' time with the Broncos, as it appears that another one of his personnel decisions may have gone awry.

Cox on the season has recorded 45 tackles, one forced fumble, one interception, and now one giant headache for Eric Studesville in the first week of his run as interim head coach.

Week 8 injury report analysis Part I

Posted by Andy Benoit

Broncos @ 49ers

The Broncos kept LB Wesley Woodyard, LB Robert Ayers, CB Perrish Cox, S Darcel McBath and DE Kevin Vickerson back home in The States for this one. The absence of these five players is a serious blow to Denver’s defensive depth. At least S Brian Dawkins (knee) and CB Andre Goodman (quad) are probable. Both sat out last week’s debacle against Oakland.

Considering both of these teams have a bye next week, is it even worth it for the Broncos to play Dawkins and Goodman this week against a 49ers passing attack that is without starting QB Alex Smith (shoulder) and relying on a somewhat hobbled Vernon Davis (questionable; ankle)?

Because the Broncos love to sling the ball, it’s worth noting that Niners CB Tarell Brown (back) is doubtful and CB Nate Clements (ankle) is probable.

Jaguars @ Cowboys

The Cowboys are likely without Tony Romo for the season, given that the team will almost certainly be eliminated from playoff contention once his shoulder heals. The Jags are getting THEIR quarterback, David Garrard, back after a 1 ½-game absence (concussion). How’s this for freaky: every quarterback that has replaced Garrard at some point this season has goL. Hall (US Presswire)tten injured. Luke McCown blew out his knee working relief duty in Week 1. Trent Edwards dinged his right thumb after Garrard suffered his concussion against the Titans. And now, last week’s starter, Todd Bouman, is questionable with a right finger injury.

Also questionable is Jaguars DE Jeremy Mincey (hand), who was just given the starting job ahead of disappointing former first-round pick Derrick Harvey (who should be listed as questionable each week with an iffy skill set).

Jacksonville’s interior defensive line should step up in this game. The Cowboys are still without left guard Kyle Kosier (ankle) and his backup Montrae Holland (groin). Phil Costa will start for them. Cornerback Terence Newman is expected to play despite sore ribs. Knowing Newman, though, he’ll come out of the game with a false injury scare at least twice.

Dolphins @ Bengals

Not a single player of consequence is listed on Miami’s injury report. For the Bengals, it’s the other way around. Essentially Cincy’s entire secondary is listed as questionable, with the exception of S Roy Williams, who is doubtful (knee), and CB Leon Hall, who is probable (hamstring). Hall missed Wednesday and Thursday’s workout. His counterpart, Johnathan Joseph (ankle), missed Wednesday and most of Thursday. Backup CB Morgan Trent also sat both days. And, oh yeah, nickelback Adam Jones was just placed on IR (neck). Considering the Bengals have next to no pass rush, the injuries in the defensive backfield are an extra major concern.

Former Bengals player might be in trouble

Posted by Josh Katzowitz

It’s never a good thing when the guys over at Yahoo! Sports have you in their investigative journalistic sites.

That’s where former Bengals CB Horace Smith finds himself tonight. According to Charles Robinson of Y!, NFL security is investigating whether Smith attempted to defraud three rookies of more than $350,000.

The first-year players in question are Raiders DT Lamarr Houston, Cardinals LB Daryl Washington and Broncos CB Perrish Cox.

Smith was working as the director of college scouting for Woy & Willis Sports Group, a Dallas-based sports agency but apparently he was fired in February. The agency has since filed a lawsuit against Smith.

From the story:

The suit filed by Woy & Willis states that Smith allegedly took out loans “in excess of $350,000” using the players’ names without their knowledge – many at high rates of interest – then had the money directed into secret accounts with a brokerage firm in New York City, where Smith could access the funds for his own use. The suit also claims Smith engaged in “unauthorized and extravagant expenditures supposedly on behalf of players,” and misused two rental cars tied to the sports agency – one of which remains unaccounted for.

Three sources familiar with the NFLPA and league probes said investigators are also looking into a jewelry deal allegedly brokered by Smith, in which the players were offered custom jewelry at nearly double the appraised value. The items, which allegedly included high end Breitling watches priced at nearly $85,000 each, ultimately were not purchased by the players at the inflated prices.


That’s a brief preview for you. Read the rest of the piece. It’s quite interesting and troubling.

AFC Week 4 Inactives

Posted by Josh Katzowitz

First, the notable actives:

Baltimore RB Ray Rice will play today. As will Raiders WR Louis Murphy (that’s very good new for Oakland). Rookie NT Terrence Cody and DL Paul Kruger will make their 2010 debuts for the Ravens. Also, Denver's Tim Tebow is the No. 2 QB today, while Brady Quinn is No. 3. Jets RB Joe McKnight, who's been a big disappointment so far, is active for the first time. Bills CB Marcus Trufant is active as well. And in some great news for Seattle, LT Russell Okung will make his career debut. 

And now the inactives:

Darrelle Revis, CB, Jets:
He’s getting closer to returning, but against the Bills – where the only real receiving threat is Lee Evans – it’s probably unnecessary to play a Revis that’s still not 100 percent. Antonio Cromartie, who’s had mixed results as the No. 1 shutdown corner, should be OK vs. Evans.

Jonathan Fanene, DE, Bengals: This isn’t as big of a loss, considering Antwan Odom will play. Fanene has been bothered by a hamstring injury.

Cory Redding, DL, Ravens: He suffered a concussion last week, and he didn't pass his baseline tests this week. Therefore, he's inactive. It's unfortunate for Baltimore, considering the Ravens will try to slow down Pittsburgh RB Rashard Mendenhall, the fourth-leading rusher in the league.

Jake Delhomme, QB, Browns: Seneca Wallace will take over the QB spot for Cleveland for the second straight week as Delhomme tries to recover from an ankle injury. Delhomme was listed as questionable, but he was seen limping around the locker room this week. So this isn't a big surprise.

Knowshon Moreno, RB, Broncos: We know this would happen, and therefore, it falls to newly-acquired Laurence Maroney to move the ball. Last week, he struggled, gaining just 24 yards on 12 carries. QB Kyle Orton can't be expected to throw for 400-plus yards every week.

Andre' Goodman, CB, Broncos:
Bothered by a quadriceps injury, Goodman is inactive for the second-straight week. His replacement last week, Perrish Cox, gave up the TD pass to unknown Colts rookie Blair White.

Josh Wilson, CB, Ravens: Cary Williams, who missed the first two games of the season with a suspension, takes the place of Wilson. Special teams might have played a factor in this decision.
