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 guy 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 has been 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 has been placed on injured reserve with an undisclosed injury, ESPN reports.
He missed Week 2 with a back injury, but had a tackle in last week's win over the Chargers. Cole has just three sacks in 16 games with the Colts and looks like a bust after signing a two-year contract in 2015. He may have played his last game with Indianapolis.

Cole fully practiced on Friday after being limited throughout the week with a back ailment. Regardless of his status, Robert Mathis and Erik Walden will start at outside linebacker.

Updating previous reports, Cole (back) is officially listed as doubtful for Sunday's game against the Broncos.
Cole did not practice at all this week due to his back problem, so he's not expected to suit up Sunday versus Denver.

Cole (back) did not practice Friday and is questionable for Sunday's game at Denver.
He didn't practice all week, so it seems unlikely that he'll play despite the relatively optimistic injury designation.

Cole had two tackles, including a tackle for a loss, in Sunday's loss to Detroit.
Cole played 39 snaps of 64 snaps on defense as he'll be in the rotation at outside linebacker. He didn't provide much reason after one game to think he'll bounce back from career-low marks for both tackles (32) and sacks (three) last season.
Cole agreed to reduce this 2016 base salary from $4.25 million to $2 million, ESPN's Field Yates reports.
After recording career-low marks for both tackles (32) and sacks (three) in his first season with Indianapolis, the 33-year-old Cole had to accept a reduced salary to avoid being released. He'll largely be limited to passing downs next season, and the Colts will probably try to secure a young pass rusher within the first two days of the 2016 NFL Draft.
Cole has been ruled out of Sunday's game against Tennessee due to a concussion, Fox 59 TV in Indianapolis reports.

Cole should be a go this week, though with just five tackles in two games for the Colts to date, a wait-and-see approach is in order from an IDP perspective.
Colts linebacker Trent Cole (knee) practiced on a limited basis Thursday, Kevin Bowen of Colts.com reports.
Cole wasn't able to play Sunday against the Titans after registering as a late addition to the teams' injury report last week. While his practice status Thursday certainly seems to indicate he could play against the Jaguars this Sunday, we will know more information about his availability Friday.
