Bills' Bryan Cox: Heads to IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cox has been placed on injured reserve after recently undergoing Achilles surgery, Maddy Glab of the Bills' official site reports.

Given that Cox required surgery and that the Bills signed two defensive linemen Tuesday, we doubt the veteran is coming back any time soon. Cox only saw action in one regular-season game for the Bills in 2020, so he might have faced an uphill climb to make the team anyway.

Bills' Bryan Cox: Called up from practice squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Bills promoted Cox from their practice squad ahead of Monday's game against the Chiefs, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.

Buffalo is expected to make defensive linemen Trent Murphy and Harrison Phillips healthy inactives for the Week 6 contest, so Cox and Justin Zimmer were summoned on short notice to provide extra depth along the defensive front. Cox made six appearances with Carolina in 2019, notching 12 tackles and a half sack.

Bryan Cox: Cut by Buffalo
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Bills elected to waive Cox on Saturday, Ryan Talbot of New York Upstate reports.

Cox inked a deal with the Bills this offseason after accumulating 12 tackles (nine solo) and 0.5 sacks across six games with the Browns last season. The 26-year-old will look to earn a depth roster spot elsewhere -- otherwise he could land back on Buffalo's practice squad for the 2020 campaign.

Bills' Bryan Cox: Familiar name comes to Buffalo
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cox signed a contract with Buffalo on Wednesday, Maddy Glab of the Bills' official site reports.

Bills Mafia is quite familiar with Cox's father, as Jr.'s dad played in the AFC East for many seasons and was known to have delivered an unfriendly gesture or two to the Buffalo fans. As for the son, he's floated around the league for a few years since going undrafted out of Florida in 2017, and he'll try to earn a depth role as part of a deep Buffalo line. He'll probably need to shine on special teams to land what might be considered a bit of a long-shot roster spot.

Browns' Bryan Cox: Sustains hand injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cox was forced out of Sunday's game against the Bengals with a hand injury, Scott Petrak of the Elyria Chronicle-Telegram reports.

Since signing with the Browns on Nov. 13, Cox has slowly increased his playing time. The 25-year-old defensive end has logged above a 50-percent snap share in four of the last five games, recording eight tackles and 0.5 sacks in the process. Porter Gustin could see additional snaps in Cox's stead.

Browns' Bryan Cox: Signs with Cleveland
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cox signed with the Browns on Wednesday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Cox, the son of former Dolphins' LB Bryan Cox, brings depth to Cleveland's offensive line, but he won't play too big a role in IDP formats. The 25-year-old was recently let go by the Panthers after recording a pair of tackles in Week 9.

Bryan Cox: Waived by Carolina
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Panthers waived Cox on Friday, Max Henson of the team's official site reports.

Cox was waived to make room for Cole Luke on the 53-man roster. The third-year pro appeared in one game for the Panthers this season, playing 11 snaps on defense and recording two tackles (one solo) against the Titans in Week 9.

Panthers' Bryan Cox: Promoted from practice squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cox was signed to the Panthers' 53-man roster Tuesday, Jourdan Rodrigue of The Athletic reports.

Cox was let go by the Panthers at roster cutdowns but remained with the team on the practice squad. The 25-year-old played in 18 games over the past two years with Carolina, recording 16 tackles (eight solo) while serving as a rotational defensive end.

Bryan Cox: Let go by Panthers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cox was cut by the Panthers on Saturday, Joe Person of The Athletic reports.

Cox received citations for speeding, possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia during a traffic stop midway through training camp, which may have played a part in the Panthers' decision not to keep him on the initial 53-man roster. He'll search for a reserve role with another team.

Panthers' Bryan Cox: Gets cited during traffic stop
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cox received citations for speeding, possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia during a traffic stop Wednesday, the Associated Press reports. He has a court date scheduled for Oct. 14.

Afterward, the Panthers released a statement: "The club is aware that Bryan Cox Jr. was cited by law enforcement today. We are gathering information and have been in contact with the NFL and Bryan. We will have no further comment at this time." Cox is in contention for a 53-man roster spot for a third consecutive season, but such an incident could play a role in the team's decision-making process on cut-down day (Aug. 31). Furthermore, he'll be subject to punishment from the league once the legal process concludes.

Panthers' Bryan Cox: Re-signs with Panthers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cox signed a contract with the Panthers on Thursday.

Cox has served as a backup defensive lineman for the Panthers through his first-two seasons, totaling 16 tackles and a fumble recovery across 18 games in that span. He'll figure to operate as a depth lineman and special teams player once again in 2019.

Panthers' Bryan Cox: Tendered by Carolina
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Panthers tendered Cox a contract Wednesday, David Newton of reports.

Cox has appeared in 18 games for Carolina over the past two seasons and has flashed potential despite producing just 16 total tackles without any sacks. He'll be in the mix to fill the snaps at defensive end that were vacated by the retirement of Julius Peppers.

Panthers' Bryan Cox: Makes training camp debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cox (knee) passed his physical and participated in practice for the first time Wednesday, Max Henson of the Panthers' official site reports.

Cox received a promotion to the active roster last September, making six tackles (four solo) and recovering a fumble in his seven appearances during 2017. He likely enters camp this year on a bit more stable ground for a roster spot but will still need to prove himself to remain part of the mix.

Panthers' Bryan Cox: Hurts knee during minicamp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cox was helped off the field during Thursday's minicamp practice after sustaining a left knee injury, Joe Person of The Charlotte Observer reports.

The Panthers likely won't have a clear idea regarding the extent of Cox's injury until he's sent in for further evaluation. The 23-year-old appeared in seven games as an undrafted rookie in 2017, logging six tackles and a fumble recovery.

Panthers' Bryan Cox: Elevated to active roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Panthers promoted Cox to their 53-man roster Saturday, Jourdan Rodrigue of the Charlotte Observer reports.

Cox was called up for insurance on the defensive line, as veteran defensive end Julius Peppers (shoulder) was a late addition to the injury report Saturday. The rookie could potentially see some rotational reps should Peppers ultimately be ruled out.
