The Eagles have ruled DE Derek Barnett and DT Fletcher Cox out for Sunday night's season finale against Washington. With DE Josh Sweat on IR, that leaves Vinny Curry to start opposite Brandon Graham for the 2nd straight game. He carries intriguing upside against Washington. With Cox missing, Javon Hargrave and Malik Jackson figure to be the top 2 at DT again.

Eagles DT Fletcher Cox (neck) is active for today's game against the Cowboys. There's some risk after Cox missed practice all week, but he's available if he's in your IDP plans.

Eagles DT Fletcher Cox (neck) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Cowboys. We'll check his status when the inactives come out around 3 p.m. ET.

The Eagles expect DT Fletcher Cox to be ready to play in Sunday's opener against Washington, GM Howie Roseman said during a Saturday press conference. Cox spent all of training camp and the preseason putting in limited work while making his way back from offseason foot surgery. IDP owners might want to anticipate a slower start for Cox this season, but the veteran clearly brings as much upside as any DT. Philly's team D is certainly better for having Cox on the field.

Eagles DT Fletcher Cox (calf) is active for tonight's game against the Panthers. He's a risky IDP option after a slow start and missing the past 2 weeks, though.

Eagles DT Fletcher Cox is questionable for tonight's game against the Panthers after returning to practice this week from 2 games down with a calf injury. He's certainly good enough when healthy to deliver in just about any matchup. But the calf situation paired with Cox's quiet statistical start to this year makes him not worth waiting on unless you're filling a DT-specific slot.

Eagles DT Fletcher Cox practiced Tuesday, according to Philly Voice's Jimmy Kempski. Cox missed the past 2 games with a calf injury and will make for a risky IDP option on the short week if he is active for Thursday night's game at Carolina.

The Eagles have ruled DT Fletcher Cox (calf) out for Sunday's game against the Chargers. MLB Jordan Hicks (ankle) and S Rodney McLeod (hamstring) are both questionable but put in full practices all week. Both seem on track to play in an upside scoring matchup for IDP owners.

Eagles DT Fletcher Cox (ankle) is active for today's game at Washington and should be in IDP lineups.

Eagles DT Fletcher Cox (ankle) is questionable for Sunday's game at Washington. He sat out Wednesday's practice before returning to a limited workout Thursday and then practicing in full on Friday. Cox appears likely to play, though we'll confirm his status Sunday morning.

Eagles DT Fletcher Cox missed Wednesday's practice with an ankle injury, but he's expected to play Sunday against Washington. "He'll be fine for the game," HC Doug Pederson said, according to ESPN.com.

The Eagles have reportedly agreed to a 6-year, $103 million extension with DT Fletcher Cox, including about $63 million in guarantees. That resolves 1 of the team's biggest offseason issues, as Cox had skipped voluntary workouts while awaiting the new deal. The contract includes the richest guarantee in the league among non-QBs, showing the team's belief in its top lineman and the market that likely would have met him in free agency. Cox could be in for even better IDP numbers as a DT in new DC Jim Schwartz's 4-3 front.

According to Phillymag.com's Tim McManus, there's a "good chance" the Eagles switch to a 3-4 defensive front under HC Chip Kelly. GM Howie Roseman says the team has been preparing for scheme versatility since before Andy Reid left. Indeed, Philly appears more adaptaple to such a shift than the Saints. Trent Cole, Brandon Graham and Vinny Curry look like the kind of speed rushers who can work as standup OLBs in the 3-4. The Eagles dropped Cole into coverage -- more often than they should have -- back when Sean McDermott was DC. That was a key complaint leading up to McDermott's firing, but the fact that Cole got put in that situation from a down lineman spot indicates his ability. LB DeMeco Ryans might prove a questionable fit after the 3-4 shift forced him out of Houston. But there is no Brian Cushing in Philly. Perhaps Ryans will be fine as the 3-down, multi-role MLB instead of the 2-down weak inside player. Playing time (vs. salary) appeared more of an issue than his ability at the end in Houston. 2012 rookie DT Fletcher Cox can play anywhere on the line and would figure to slide to DE in a 3-4 base. Fellow 2012 rookie LB Mychal Kendricks is smallish and would need to prove he could work through traffic inside. But he excelled at multiple positions in college and came on late last year for the Eagles. Of course, we'll first have to see who Philly picks as DC. Then we can start breaking down any changes for real.

Rookie DT Fletcher Cox sustained a concussion in today's loss to Washington. That likely puts him out for Week 17. Cox has emerged as a strong IDP performer late this season and carries significant upside for next year.

The Eagles moved up from 15 to 12 Thursday night for Mississippi State's Fletcher Cox. The DT posted 5 sacks and 14.5 tackles for loss last season in earning 1st-team all-SEC honors. In Philly, he figures to immediately join a DT rotation that includes Cullen Jenkins, Mike Patterson, Derek Landri and Antonio Dixon. One of those guys will probably not make the regular-season roster. Cox's biggest contribution might be as a pass rusher. He, Jenkins, Trent Cole and Jason Babin will give opposing offenses fits in obvious passing situations. Cox's individual fantasy value will depend largely on his playing time. He can only help the value of the Eagles' team D, though.
