Perrish Cox Pushing To Make 49ers Roster

SANTA CLARA, Calif. (August 13, 2012) -- Perrish Cox is quickly making up for lost time and a lost season this summer with the San Francisco 49ers.

After sitting out last year with personal problems, Cox is pushing to make the roster and earn playing time in a competitive secondary after joining the 49ers in March.

Cox continued to make an impression during San Francisco's exhibition opener against Minnesota last Friday, putting an exclamation point on the 49ers' 17-6 victory with an interception to end the Vikings' final offensive possession.

The second-year cornerback has gained attention throughout training camp with his consistent play and is challenging for a role in coverage packages in a secondary that returns all four starters from last season, including two Pro Bowlers.
