“It wouldn’t have been fine but I wouldn’t have seen it as rape if he admitted it,” she said, referring to Thomas.

She said she went to a hospital the next day, but left before police could arrive and collect evidence because she didn’t want to falsely accuse anybody when she wasn’t sure something happened. She contacted police on Oct. 28, 2010, after learning she was pregnant.

Thomas testified that Cox carried the sleeping woman to his bed and told Thomas, “I think she’s ready.” Steinberg objected, arguing Thomas he hadn’t used the “she’s ready” phrase in a previous interview, and he asked for a mistrial. District Judge Paul King declined.

Under questioning by Steinberg, Thomas said he sent the woman a text the next day to ask if she remembered what happened, which the woman told police she found suspicious. Thomas said he sent the text after Cassius Vaughn, Cox’s roommate who was asleep in the apartment during the alleged assault, told him at the Broncos‘ practice facility that Che and the accuser “had a girl on girl action.”

Thomas caught an 80-yard touchdown pass in overtime to beat the Pittsburgh Steelers in a first-round playoff game in January.
