Minutes after being acquitted of third-degree assault on a man in a bar, Denver starting T Gerald Perry said he no longer will play football in Colorado because of his run-ins with the law and intense media attention.

"There's no way I'll ever be able to live here and play here and be comfortable," Perry said after a six-member Denver County Court jury acquitted him.

Asked about Perry's comment, Broncos Coach Dan Reeves said Perry had not talked to him about leaving Denver.

"I can understand the reason he would say something like that," said Reeves. "I hope he gives it {his decision} time and weight and feels differently."

Last spring Perry, 26, served a few days in jail for charges stemming from an incident involving a prostitute. He currently faces a third-degree sexual assault charge in Arapahoe County stemming from an episode involving teammate Orson Mobley's girlfriend.

He told reporters that the series of incidents have been "too draining" for him and his family, and they feel uncomfortable in Denver.

Don Majkowski has not practiced since sustaining a deep bruise in his throwing shoulder Nov. 18 at Phoenix.

"I don't think there's any way at this time that Don can play," Coach Lindy Infante said after yesterday's practice. "We have planned all week with the idea Anthony would be our starter and that's the way we're going into this game."
