Eagles defensive lineman Fletcher Cox missed practice last Wednesday due to an unspecified illness.  It turns out the illness was due to an attempted home invasion.

According to reports, a man showed up at Cox’s house looking for his ex-girlfriend.  The man reportedly damaged her car and attempted to enter the home.

Cox grabbed his shotgun and scared the man off.  He was later arrested for damaging the property and attempting to enter the home.
