Fletcher Cox missed offseason workouts after undergoing foot surgery. The hope is that he's ready for Eagles training camp.

The first-team All-Pro defensive tackle told WAPT in Jackson, Miss., over the weekend during his 7-on-7 high school football camp that he seems on pace to make that happen.

"Everything is going good. I'm happy about that," Cox said, via NJ.com "Just taking it day-by-day. The goal is to be ready for training camp. Just taking it day-by-day. Doctors got a schedule, and I'm following what they're doing. Everything is going good so far."

Cox's comments mimic those from April. The 28-year-old hurt his foot in the playoff loss to the New Orleans Saints, but played through the injury.

The Eagles open training camp on July 24.

Cox is coming off his best seasons as a pro, compiling 10.5 sacks and 95 pressures, per Pro Football Focus. Were it not for the presence of Aaron Donald, Cox would be considered the best defensive tackle in the NFL. Entering his eighth pro season, Cox is a vital part of what should be a deep, destructive Eagles defensive front.
