I'm truly grateful that football has started back up." He acknowledged his legal troubles still weigh heavily on him. If convicted, Cox faces between two years to life in prison. Cox has pleaded not guilty in the case. Broncos President Joe Ellis said this week the team will monitor Cox's legal situation. Cox believes he won't get cut.

An arrest warrant affidavit released Friday says the woman became pregnant and that DNA tests show Cox is the father.||||||| The document says the woman told police that doctors informed her she had become pregnant at about the time she went to Cox's apartment with friends and then passed out.

Cox pleaded not guilty to two counts of sexual assault. He is free on $50,000 bail. His trial is scheduled for October.
