CASTLE ROCK, COLO. (AP) - Denver Broncos cornerback Perrish Cox is due in court where he’s expected to enter a plea.

Cox has been charged with one count of sexual assault while the victim was physically helpless and one count of sexual assault while the victim was incapable of determining the nature of the conduct. If convicted, Cox faces between two years to life in prison. He is free on $50,000 bail.

He’s due in court Monday morning.

Authorities arrested Cox Dec. 9. Court records say the alleged assault occurred Sept. 6 and was reported a few days after Cox suffered a concussion against Oakland on Oct. 24 and left the game.

Details of the charges remain under seal at the request of prosecutors and Cox’s defense attorney, which is being contested by the media.
