Good Morning, Broncos fans. More bad news from Denver, as Perrish Cox landed himself in jail and has been charged with felony sexual assault. The alleged assault occurred on October 28, the day the Broncos left for London; Cox was left behind while recovering from a concussion. Cox missed practice yesterday and his status for tomorrow's game in Arizona is unknown; he is listed as questionable on the injury report.
As announced earlier in the week, Brian Dawkins, Spencer Larsen and Demaryius Thomas are out for tomorrow's game. Andre' Goodman, Darcel McBath and Matt Prater are listed as questionable along with Cox. Meanwhile, the Cardinals finally announced that rookie John Skelton would make the start tomorrow at QB.

Eric Studesville met with the press yesterday.
Tim Tebow spoke to reporters in the locker room.
John Elway on his radio show yesterday spoke of his interest in joining the Broncos' executive staff. Thankfully, he knows his limitations:
I'm not interested in being a head coach. I'm not interested in being a general manager. I don't have that kind of experience to be able to pick those players day in and day out and such. As we've talked about before, that's kind of an art form. There's a system and guys have that system. To pick those types of players and try to get the right combination with the head coach and general manager. In that situation, I'm not interested in doing that.
Listen here to the podcast of Elway's show from yesterday.
