Cox Limited With Knee Inflammation

The only new name on the Eagles’ injury report Thursday was defensive tackle Fletcher Cox, who was a limited participant because of knee inflammation.

Cox is expected to play significant snaps Sunday against the Browns as part of the Eagles’ defensive line rotation.

The team’s other defensive tackles are Cullen Jenkins, Derek Landri and Cedric Thornton.

Wide receiver Riley Cooper (collarbone) and safety Colt Anderson (knee) have already been ruled out.

The following players were listed on the injury report, but participated fully: safety Nate Allen (hamstring), defensive end Jason Babin (calf), linebacker Jamar Chaney (hamstring), running back Dion Lewis (hamstring) and linebacker Casey Matthews (ankle).
