Cox remains in recovery from a severe ankle injury he sustained last September. There's no telling when he'll be back on the field, but the 24-year-old will vie for a depth role in the secondary once healthy.
Cox is set to miss his third consecutive game, with the 23-year-old having tallied four solo tackles over 38 defensive snaps the last time he was active back in Week 4. Expect Colin Jones and Jairus Byrd to continue seeing an increase in snaps in Cox's absence.
Cox (ankle) has been ruled out for Thursday's matchup with the Eagles, Joe Person of the Charlotte Observer reports.
Cox was not able to practice Monday and Tuesday and will now miss his second straight contest as a result. Dezmen Southward, who was promoted to the active roster Friday, could see an increase in special team reps given Cox's absence.
Cox (ankle) is listed as out for Sunday's game against the Lions, David Newton of ESPN.com reports.
Cox earned his first defensive snaps (38) of the season against the Patriots in Week 4, racking up four solo tackles. Regardless, he still projects as a reserve defensive back for Carolina and shouldn't be seen as a long-term IDP option.
