Cox a game-time decision vs. Panthers | Shark Bites | Draft Sharks

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.

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 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.
