Bill Belichick Has High Praise For Eagles’ Fletcher Cox

Published

on

New England Patriots head coach Bill Belichick holds Philadelphia Eagles defensive tackle Fletcher Cox in high regard saying he is one of the best at his position.

Coming from a legendary coach, the praise is nothing to sneeze at.

“Cox is as good as anybody in the league at his position,” Belichick said of Cox (h/t Pro Football Talk). “He’s a very disruptive player, hard to block, run, pass, no matter what it is, good edge rush, and they come hard every play, those guys come hard every play. There’s no plays off so you have to block them hard every play.”

Belichick also discussed the challenges of gameplanning for the Eagles defensive front.

“It’s a very disruptive group, hard to run against, hard to throw against, and they’re well coached, very instinctive in their screens and plays like that that you think will take the edge of the pass rush, don’t look as good as you think — when you run them they don’t look as good as you think they will,” Belichick said.

“Draws, screens, play action, they blow those plays up too. They have a lot of good players. They have good inside rushers, good outside rushers.”

Jags’ Leonard Fournette, Jalen Ramsey, Others Remain Questionable

The Jacksonville Jaguars have a number of players on the mend, and running back Leonard Fournette and cornerback Jalen Ramsey are both questionable for Sunday’s game against the Tennessee Titans, according to ESPN’s Michael DiRocco.

Fournette and Ramsey aren’t alone, as running back T.J. Yeldon, cornerback D.J. Hayden, and right guard A.J. Cann are all questionable as well.

Fournette will likely be a gametime decision.

“We’ve been playing a lot of tough games,” Jaguars head coach Doug Marrone said. “Players are doing the best job they can to get themselves ready to go, but we played a home opener in New York. We played a home opener here. Now we’ve got a divisional opponent.

“When you look at it a lot of teams are going through the same thing, just trying to keep everybody as healthy as they possibly can.”

The Cincinnati Bengals will be without rookie center Billy Price as he is dealing with a lower left leg injury, according to the Cincinnati Enquirer’s Paul Dehner Jr.

“Finally figured out what it was this morning,” Price said. “Last couple days was just trying to figure out what it is and what’s the plan going forward. They thought it was an ankle now turned to a foot, there wasn’t any swelling and it wasn’t Lisfranc, so just thankful for that. That’s great news.”

Price will be re-evaluated in two weeks by doctors.

Coleman is close to being out of the NFL completely after his cut from the Buffalo Bills, following his bottoming out with the Cleveland Browns.
