COX SAYS HE IS EXCITED TO PLAY SUNDAY
But Fletcher Cox sounded more excited than usual when the Eagles made him the 12th overall selection in the 2012 draft after just three seasons at Mississippi State.
"I'm excited," he said at the time. "Very excited."
Indeed, a mini celebration had broken out at his Mississippi home, for he wanted to be an Eagle ... and nothing other than an Eagle.
Sunday in Cleveland, he will get that chance. Though he did not practice fully Thursday due to a swollen knee, the defensive tackle will be in the mix, defensive coordinator Juan Castillo said.
