Cox sat out of Wednesday's practice due to a neck strain, but is back at Thursday's practice, Dave Zangaro of CSN Philadelphia reports.
Cox likely won't be a full participant Thursday, but the neck strain appears to be a minor issue at the worst. Gabe Wright and Elijah Qualls figure to see additional reps in practice with Cox sidelined.
Cox (personal) returned to OTAs Tuesday, Jeff McLane of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
Cox was absent from OTAs last week after the Eagles granted the defensive lineman permission to be with his family. Cox is expected to be a full participant for the rest of OTAs before training camp starts in July.
Cox was not at OTAs Tuesday for personal reasons, Zach Berman of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
The Eagles granted Cox permission to be with his family this week and subsequently not report to OTAs. According to the report, Cox is expected to return to team activities following the week-long absence.
Cox finished the 2016 season with 6.5 sacks, 43 tackles and a forced fumble in 16 games played. Those totals are down from his 9.5 sacks, 71 tackles and three forced fumbles in 2015, but he was hobbled by ankle injuries at times during the season. He'll look to rebound with an improved season in 2017.
After notching four sacks in the first four games of 2016, this is the first time Cox has gotten to the quarterback since. He's an elite player who hasn't been getting statistical results since early October, but he owns the skills to have a monstrous end to the season.
