Fletcher Cox could reportedly face suspension for block

Apparently, Fletcher Cox might get suspended. 

The NFL is reviewing Cox's block on Joe Staley that left Staley with a broken orbital bone and a gash under his eye, ESPN's Adam Schefter reported. 

The Eagles' star lineman could be fined or suspended, the report said.  

The block happened during Jalen Mills' return on his pick-6 in the second quarter. The TV replay doesn't give a great angle, but you can almost see it at the bottom of the screen here. 

In the bottom left corner, Staley goes flying and Cox immediately throws his arms in the air. It looked like it might have just been a block in the back. 

CBS' Pat Gallen shared this angle that makes it look like Cox got his arms in Staley's face, which would make more sense. 

"I have seen it," head coach Doug Pederson said. "Just like you mentioned, it's hard even to see it on the coach's copy, exactly what had happened. There was contact but it's so far away it's hard to tell what exactly. Without getting something a little closer, it's hard to tell what exactly what happened at that point." 

Cox and the Eagles' defensive line was great on Sunday afternoon. The entire team ended the game with 12 quarterback hits and the D-line had 10 of them. 

The Eagles' next game is at home against Denver on Sunday.
