CASTLE ROCK, COLO. (AP) -- A woman who claims she was sexually assaulted by former Denver Broncos cornerback Perrish Cox is expected to continue her testimony in a trial that could send the former player to prison for life.

The woman, whose name is not being published by The Associated Press because she's an alleged victim of a sexual crime, is expected back on the stand Wednesday in Castle Rock.

Cox has pleaded not guilty to 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. He faces two years to life in prison if convicted.

On Tuesday, she testified that she believes she was drugged the night of the alleged assault.
