Cox recorded two tackles (one solo), one sack and one pass defensed in Sunday's win over the 49ers.

EDGE Analysis

Cox was all over the field Sunday, as his sack count is now up to 4.5 on the season. The veteran was in danger of being suspended for fracturing Joe Staley's orbital bone, but it looks like he won't be facing any further disciplinary action.

Cox (calf) is active for Thursday's game against the Panthers, Zac Berman of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

EDGE Analysis

Cox was a full participant in practice all week so it's not all too surprising he'll be out on the field Thursday night. The veteran is returning from a two-game absence so the Eagles may look to limit his snap count. If that is the case, look for Beau Allen and Justin Hamilton to see expanded reps.

Eagles head coach Doug Pederson said Cox (calf) is listed as questionable for Thursday's game against the Panthers, Zach Berman of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

EDGE Analysis

Pederson officially labeled Cox as a game-time decision for Thursday, despite the defensive tackle participating in all three of the team's practices this week. Because of the short turnaround between games, the intensity of all of those practices were low, so they may not have provided the Eagles with a proper gauge of Cox's health. The team will check back on Cox's condition after pregame warmups Thursday before making a ruling on his status.

Cox (calf) was listed as a full participant in Tuesday's practice.

EDGE Analysis

Cox was limited in Monday's session, but his advancement to a full practice suggests that he's likely trending toward suiting up Thursday against the Panthers after he was sidelined during the Week 5 win over the Cardinals. The star lineman's expected return couldn't come at a better time for the Eagles, who could be without the services of their top two backups at defensive tackle in Beau Allen (foot) and Destiny Vaeao (wrist). Both reserves were limited during Tuesday's practice.

Cox (calf) will take part in the Eagles' practice Tuesday, Eliot Shorr-Parks of The Newark Star-Ledger reports.

EDGE Analysis

Because of the quick turnaround this week with the Eagles traveling to Carolina for the Thursday night game, it's expected that head coach Doug Pederson will run only light practices leading up to the contest. As a result, Cox's presence on the field, while encouraging, may not mean much with regards to his availability for Week 6. He should be viewed as questionable for the matchup with the Panthers until the Eagles give him an official designation following their final practice Wednesday. If Cox is forced out of a second straight game, Beau Allen (foot), Justin Hamilton and Derek Barnett would likely be in store for some extra snaps as part of the Eagles' defensive line rotation.

The Eagles have ruled Cox (calf) out for their game Sunday against the Cardinals, Tim McManus of ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Cox's absence for a second straight week will hamper an Eagles pass rush that was only able to hit Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers three times during Philadelphia's Week 4 win. It's expected that Beau Allen and Destiny Vaeao (wrist) will see their snap counts increase with Cox out of the mix, but neither offers much intrigue in IDP formats.

Cox (calf) won't participate in the Eagles' first practice of the week Wednesday, Eliot Shorr-Parks of The Newark Star-Ledger reports.

EDGE Analysis

Cox ended up sitting out the Eagles' Week 4 matchup with the Chargers due to the injury, but coach Doug Pederson isn't ready to rule him out for Sunday's tilt with the Cardinals. Pederson clarified that the star defensive lineman is considered day-to-day, so if he's able to get on the field in some capacity Thursday or Friday, Cox will have a decent chance of suiting up in Week 5.

Cox (calf) will not play in Sunday's game against the Chargers, Martin Frank of The Delaware News Journal reports.

EDGE Analysis

The good news for Cox is that head coach Doug Pederson said Friday that it is not a multi-week injury, so expect the star tackle to return for Week 5. Look for Beau Allen to fill in at defensive tackle in Cox's absence against the Chargers on Sunday.

Head coach Doug Pederson said Cox (calf) is considered day-to-day, Martin Frank of the Delaware News Journal reports.

EDGE Analysis

Cox left Sunday's victory over the Giants with a calf injury and wasn't able to return. Although he wasn't able to practice Wednesday, it still sounds like he has a decent chance of playing this weekend.

Cox (calf) won't return to Sunday's game against the Giants.

EDGE Analysis

The Eagles' depth at defensive tackle is in question since Destiny Vaeao (wrist) is inactive Sunday. Cox adds a pass-rushing element that's hard to replace, but expect to see Beau Allen to slot in for him while he starts his recovery.
