Cole will officially retire from the NFL as a member of the Eagles ahead of Philadelphia's game Monday against Oakland, Jim Gehman of the Eagles' official site reports. A fifth-round pick of the Eagles in 2005, Cole played 10 seasons with the Eagles and earned two Pro Bowl appearances. He played his final two years with the Colts, finishing with career totals of 90.5 sacks and 21 forced fumbles across 176 games.
Cole had a sack, a tackle for a loss and four tackles in Sunday's loss to Houston. Cole's season looked over after a back injury placed him on injured reserve after Week 3, but he's been a productive rotation at rush linebacker. He played a season-high 46 snaps in Sunday's loss. It was just his fourth sack in 18 games since joining the Colts.
Cole was activated from injured reserve and added to the Colts' active roster. Cole has been on injured reserve since Week 3 due to an undisclosed injury. Cole did not have a sack and just three tackles in three games this season before the injury. He's had just three sacks in 16 games with the Colts. However, he'll likely get playing time off the bench as the Colts look for any spark in their pass rush.
Cole (undisclosed) was cleared to return to practice Monday, Mike Chappell of Indysportscentral.com reports. Cole has been on injured reserve since Week 3 due to an undisclosed injury, and although he still hasn't been activated, Cole is certainly a candidate to return from IR once he's deemed healthy enough to play.
Cole (back) is active for Sunday's game against the Chargers. There was a chance that Cole would be forced to sit out of Sunday's game with his back not at 100 percent, but it looks like he'll be ready to play after some time off from practice.
