Eagles' Fletcher Cox: Makes 40 tackles in 2019
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cox recorded 40 tackles (26 solo), 3.5 sacks, two pass breakups and three forced fumbles while playing in all 16 of the Eagles' regular-season games in 2019.

Cox has logged between 40 and 46 tackles in three of the past four campaigns, but he turned in the second-lowest sack total of his eight-year career. He'll likely bounce back and re-emerge as a reliable low-end option in IDP leagues next season.

Eagles' Fletcher Cox: Good to go Week 17
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cox (triceps) doesn't have an injury designation for Sunday's game against the Giants.

Cox began the week as a limited practice participant, but he put in a full session Friday to avoid the questionable tag. The 29-year-old should play his usual role as the anchor of the Eagles' defense up front.

Eagles' Fletcher Cox: Puts in limited session
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cox (triceps) was limited in practice Thursday.

Cox has been limited in both practices of the week so far. His activity Friday bears monitoring, but the Mississippi State product will likely suit up against the Giants in Week 17. He's played in all 16 games this season.

Eagles' Fletcher Cox: Marks 1.5 sacks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cox tallied six tackles (four solo) and 1.5 sacks in Sunday's 31-13 win over the Bills.

After racking up a career-high 10.5 sacks last season, Cox failed to record a sack over the first six games of 2019. He appears to be hitting his stride now, as Cox has 2.5 sacks over the last two contests. However, Cox's IDP value is still light with 2.9 tackles per game.

Eagles' Fletcher Cox: Full-go Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cox (undisclosed) was absent from Wednesday's injury report, suggesting he's fully healthy.

Cox reportedly needed X-ray's on his hand following Sunday's loss to the Cowboys, but appears to have escaped any serious injury. Expect the veteran to assume his normal role in the middle of the defensive line for Sunday's game against Buffalo.

Eagles' Fletcher Cox: Needs X-ray after loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cox needed to go in for an X-ray after Sunday's loss to the Cowboys, Derrick Gunn of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports.

Gunn believes the X-ray is on Cox's hand. Expect an update on the severity of the injury to come sometime before Philadelphia's Week 8 clash with the Bills.

Eagles' Fletcher Cox: Overcomes illness
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cox (illness) was a full participant in Thursday's practice, Zack Rosenblatt of The Newark Star-Ledger reports.

Cox couldn't practice Wednesday, but he's now resumed operating in full capacity. Barring any setbacks, the 28-year-old is set for his usual start against the Cowboys on Sunday.

Eagles' Fletcher Cox: Missing due to illness
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cox was a non-participant at Wednesday's practice because of an illness.

Cox played 52 defensive snaps in Sunday's loss at Minnesota and it's unclear how long he's been battling the illness. The 28-year-old has missed only three games over his eight-year career, so the illness seems unlikely to impact his availability for Week 7.

Eagles' Fletcher Cox: Practices in full
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cox (toe) was a full participant in Thursday's practice.

Cox was limited in practice Wednesday and now appears back to full health. Barring any setbacks, the defensive tackle is set to play his usual starting role Sunday versus the Lions.

Eagles' Fletcher Cox: Does limited work Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cox (toe) was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice.

Cox was limited last week, but there was still little doubt he was going to play in Sunday night's game against the Falcons, and it looks like the defensive tackle could be in a similar spot this week. Look for Cox's status for the weekend to become clearer based on his participation in Thursday and Friday's practices.

Eagles' Fletcher Cox: Set to play Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cox (toe) will play Sunday versus the Falcons, Daniel Gallen of The Harrisburg Patriot-News reports.

Coach Doug Pederson already said he expected Cox to play, so Friday's injury report simply confirms it. The veteran defensive end posted two tackles in the season opener against the Redskins, and he'll look to capitalize on the pass rush Sunday versus Falcons QB Matt Ryan, who was dropped four times by the Vikings in Week 1.

Eagles' Fletcher Cox: Expected to play Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Doug Pederson expects Cox (toe) to be ready to play Sunday in Atlanta, Martin Frank of The Delaware News Journal reports.

The 28-year-old was a limited practice participant Wednesday and Thursday, but it apparently won't impact his availability for Week 2. Pederson indicated the toe injury is related to Cox's offseason foot surgery, though it's not a serious concern. The veteran defensive tackle could still end up on the final injury report, which will be released later Friday.

Eagles' Fletcher Cox: Limited in practice Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cox (toe) was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice, Jeff McLane of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

It remains to be seen whether Cox's injury is a new issue or related to his offseason foot surgery. In any case, the veteran's availability will be key for Philadelphia's interior defensive line with Malik Jackson (foot) done for the year.

Eagles' Fletcher Cox: Completes rehab from foot surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cox (foot) wasn't listed Wednesday on the Eagles' Week 1 injury report.

Cox spent the bulk of the offseason rehabbing from foot surgery, and despite sitting out this preseason, he was a regular participant at practice. With a full session in his pocket to kick off Week 1 preparations, he's set to be his usual disruptive self on the interior of the Eagles' stacked defensive front.

Eagles' Fletcher Cox: Should be okay for Week 1
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cox (foot) should be ready for Week 1 against Washington, Jimmy Kempski of reports.

General manager Howie Roseman confirmed that the Eagles' decision to keep just four defensive tackles on the 53-man roster involves an implicit vote of confidence in Cox playing Week 1. The 28-year-old was held out of training camp and all four preseason games while recovering from offseason foot surgery. The Eagles can afford to limit his snap counts early in the season, considering they have two other defensive tackles -- Malik Jackson and Timmy Jernigan -- with impressive track records as interior pass rushers.

Eagles' Fletcher Cox: Still not practicing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cox remains absent from practice due to a foot injury, leaving his Week 1 status up in the air, Tim McManus of reports.

Cox said Aug. 13 that he would just need a week of practice to be ready for the season opener, as he wasn't expected to play in any preseason action. With the Sep. 8 opener against Washington fast approaching, however, the 28-year-old's status remains unclear. If Cox isn't ready for Week 1, Hassan Ridgeway or Tim Jernigan would likely be candidates to see action instead.

Eagles' Fletcher Cox: Could be back for start of season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cox (foot) is not expected to play in the preseason, but a return for the start of the regular season is still possible, Reuben Frank of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports.

Cox doesn't appear to be concerned about his physical form for the regular season, saying he will need just a week of practice to be ready for the opener. The defensive tackle said he has remained on schedule with his rehab so far.

Eagles' Fletcher Cox: Limited Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cox (foot) was a limited participant in Monday's practice, Daniel Gallen of PennLive reports.

Cox underwent surgery on his right foot in early March after reportedly sustaining the injury in the Eagles' divisional-round playoff loss to the Saints. It's unclear how much longer the injury will keep the 28-year-old from practicing fully. Cox is coming off a monster 2018 in which he racked up 46 total tackles and a career-high 10.5 sacks over 16 games.

Eagles' Fletcher Cox: On track for training camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cox (foot) said Monday that his goal is "to be ready for training camp," Zack Rosenblatt of 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.

Eagles' Fletcher Cox: Still aiming for training camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cox is still rehabbing from offseason foot surgery with the goal to be ready for training camp, Daniel Gallen of reports.

Cox injured his foot during a Jan. 13 playoff loss to the Saints and had surgery at some point thereafter. Although he wasn't using a walking boot Tuesday at team headquarters, there doesn't seem to be any expectation of active participation in the Eagles' offseason program. The 28-year-old defensive tackle is entering the third season of a six-year, $102.6 million extension, coming off a 2018 campaign with career highs in sacks (10.5), quarterback hits (34) and tackles for loss (12).
