  • Eagles' Fletcher Cox: Active Thursday
    By RotoWire Staff

    Cox (calf) is active for Thursday's game against the Panthers, Zac Berman of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports. Cox was a full participant in practice all week, so it's not all too surprising he'll be out on the field Thursday night. Since the veteran is returning from a two-game absence, the Eagles may look to limit his snap count. If that is the case, look for Beau Allen and Justin Hamilton to see expanded reps.

  • Eagles head coach Doug Pederson said Cox (calf) is listed as questionable for Thursday's game against the Panthers, Zach Berman of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports. Pederson officially labeled Cox as a game-time decision for Thursday, despite the defensive tackle participating in all three of the team's practices this week. Because of the short turnaround between games, the intensity of all of those practices was low, so they may not have provided the Eagles with a proper gauge of Cox's health. The team will check back on Cox's condition after pregame warmups Thursday before making a ruling on his status.

  • Cox (calf) was listed as a full participant in Tuesday's practice. Cox was limited in Monday's session, but his advancement to a full practice suggests that he's likely trending toward suiting up Thursday against the Panthers after he was sidelined during the Week 5 win over the Cardinals. The star lineman's expected return couldn't come at a better time for the Eagles, who could be without the services of their top two backups at defensive tackle in Beau Allen (foot) and Destiny Vaeao (wrist). Both reserves were limited during Tuesday's practice.

  • Eagles' Fletcher Cox: Ruled out Sunday
    By RotoWire Staff

    The Eagles have ruled Cox (calf) out for their game Sunday against the Cardinals, Tim McManus of ESPN.com reports. Cox's absence for a second straight week will hamper an Eagles pass rush that was only able to hit Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers three times during Philadelphia's Week 4 win. It's expected that Beau Allen and Destiny Vaeao (wrist) will see their snap counts increase with Cox out of the mix, but neither offers much intrigue in IDP formats.

  • Eagles' Fletcher Cox: Won't practice Wednesday
    By RotoWire Staff

    Cox (calf) won't participate in the Eagles' first practice of the week Wednesday, Eliot Shorr-Parks of The Newark Star-Ledger reports. Cox ended up sitting out the Eagles' Week 4 matchup with the Chargers due to the injury, but head coach Doug Pederson isn't ready to rule him out for Sunday's tilt with the Cardinals. Pederson clarified that the star defensive lineman is considered day-to-day, so if he's able to get on the field in some capacity Thursday or Friday, Cox will have a decent chance of suiting up in Week 5.
