Broncos cornerback Perrish Cox suffered a concussion during Sunday’s loss to the Raiders, and he says he has absolutely no recollection of what happened.
“I woke up and asked what the score was and they told me, ‘A lot to a little,'” Cox told the Associated Press on Tuesday. “That was kind of shocking to me — I don’t remember nothing.”
Cox said he watched the game tape to see his collision with Raiders receiver Louis Murphy but still isn’t completely sure what happened.
“I think I caught his back or a knee or something like that,” Cox said. “But I was out. . . . It still scared me because I don’t know what happened.”
Despite the severity of the concussion — and despite the league rules mandating that players be cleared by an independent physician before returning to action — Cox says he wants to play as soon as he can wouldn’t rule out being on the field Sunday.
“I was told there was a chance,” Cox said. “A lot of players come back in three-to-five days. My goal is to try to come back as quick as I can. . . . I plan on playing this week.”
