Cox returns to ignite Eagles' pass rush

(TSX / STATS) -- PHILADELPHIA -- Fletcher Cox returned to the Philadelphia Eagles lineup Thursday night against the Carolina Panthers after missing two games with a calf injury.

His return bolstered a pass rush that was not the same since he was sidelined with an injury in the game against the New York Giants in Week 2.

The All-Pro defensive tackle split an early sack with end Brandon Graham and later caused the first of Cam Newton's three interceptions when with an abrupt hit on the Carolina quarterback's arm before getting into a full throwing motion, the ball popped up in the air and was picked off by cornerback Rasul Douglas.
