Torrie Cox was attempting to make peace

Turns out CB Torrie Cox, the unintended victim of Wednesday's skirmish between Aqib Talib and Donald Penn, was trying to be a peacemaker.

According to this agent, Peter Schaffer, Cox was trying to intervene when he was struck by Talib's helmet. Schaffer echoed Penn's statements to us earlier today, saying Cox's injuries were relatively minor.

On a related note, the Bucs released a statement from general manager Mark Dominik that doesn't say much on the surface but perhaps indicates this isn't over for Talib.

"We are discussing the specifics of this situation and will provide and update as we proceed," the statement reads.

Our translation: Talib will be dealt with once we decide on a course of action. We'll keep you posted if there's anything else to report.
