Cox sat out of Wednesday's practice due to a neck strain, but is back at Thursday's practice, Dave Zangaro of CSN Philadelphia reports.

EDGE Analysis

Cox likely won't be a full participant Thursday, but the neck strain appears to be a minor issue at the worst. Gabe Wright and Elijah Qualls figure to see additional reps in practice with Cox sidelined.

Cox had three tackles in Sunday's 27-13 win over the Cowboys.

EDGE Analysis

Cox finished the 2016 season with 6.5 sacks, 43 tackles, and a forced fumble in 16 games played. Those totals are down from his 9.5 sacks, 71 tackles, and three forced fumbles in 2015, but he was hobbled by ankle injuries at times during the season. He'll look to rebound with an improved season in 2017.

Cox registered 1.5 sacks and four tackles in Sunday's loss to Washington.

EDGE Analysis

After notching four sacks in the first four games of 2016, this is the first time Cox has gotten to the quarterback since. He's an elite player who hasn't been getting statistical results since early October, but if anyone can have a monstrous end to the season, it certainly could be him.

Cox (ankle) is active for Sunday's Week 6 matchup with the Redskins, Les Bowen of the Philadelphia Daily News reports.

EDGE Analysis

Cox was limited by an ankle injury earlier in the week, but put in a full practice Friday and shouldn't face any snap count restrictions Sunday. The defensive tackle has been a force for the Eagles through the team's first four games, accruing 13 tackles, four sacks and a forced fumble.

Cox recorded three tackles, two sacks, and one forced fumble in Sunday's win over the Steelers.

EDGE Analysis

Cox had a monster performance against one of the more dynamic offenses in the league. The defensive tackle was on the field for 68 percent of the defensive plays and now heads into the bye week with a chance to rest the legs before Week 5's tilt with the Lions.

Cox signed a six-year, $103 million extension with the Eagles on Monday, Adam Schefter of ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

The deal includes over $63 million in guaranteed money, making it highest guarantee for a non-quarterback in NFL history. Only 25, Cox attended his first Pro Bowl last season after recording 71 tackles, 9.5 sacks, and three forced fumbles in 2015. The defensive tackle hasn't missed a game in the last three seasons and will look to be a cornerstone of the Eagles' defense in 2016, led by new coordinator Jim Schwartz.

Cox is with the Eagles for the start of the team's mandatory minicamp on Monday, Jeff McLane of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

EDGE Analysis

Cox missed the first two weeks of voluntary workouts, as well as the Eagles' pre-draft minicamp, in hopes of securing a new, long-term contract. He's yet to get the deal he's looking for, but Cox is with the team for minicamp and isn't expected to miss any time despite the ongoing disagreement. Cox had a very impressive 2015-16 campaign, notching 71 tackles and 9.5 sacks. He also hasn't missed a game over the last three seasons, so he should be in line to see a pay raise in the near future.

Cox is not expected to attend the Eagles' minicamp this week, The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

EDGE Analysis

Cox already missed the Eagles' first two weeks of voluntary workouts, and is now likely to skip minicamp as he continues to angle for a new contract. Although the Eagles picked up his fifth-year option for $7.8 million last year, Cox's play could earn him an extension worth up to nine figures, so Cox is likely to remain away from the team while his representatives handle negotiations. One of the league's premier defensive linemen at just 25 years old, Cox totaled a career-best 71 tackles and 9.5 sacks while forcing three fumbles as well last season.
