Cox (foot) said Monday that his goal is "to be ready for training camp," Zack Rosenblatt of NJ.com reports. Cox continues to rehab from offseason foot surgery and still appears on track for a July 24 training camp return after missing spring workouts. The veteran defensive tackle is coming off an impressive 2018 campaign in which he notched a career-high 10.5 sacks across 16 games.
Cox had three tackles (one solo) and 1.5 sacks in Sunday's loss to the Cowboys. Cox entered last week with a five-game stretch without a sack but has 2.5 sacks in the last two games. The 28-year-old hasn't exceeded three total tackles in a game since Week 6, making him difficult to trust as an IDP option.
Cox had three solo tackles and a sack in Monday's 28-13 win over the Redskins. Cox was able to end a five-game sack drought Monday as he was able to bring down Mark Sanchez in what was essentially garbage time. The 27-year-old has 35 tackles (26 solo) and five sacks this season.
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.
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.
