Eagles' Cole suffers Grade 2 calf strain vs. 49ers

Any good news should be savored by the Eagles these days, and Philadelphia got a much needed boost after an MRI exam Monday revealed that defensive end Trent Cole's calf injury is not as severe as originally feared, NFL Network's Albert Breer reported.

Citing a league source, Breer reported Cole suffered a Grade 2 calf strain during the Eagles' Sunday 24-23 loss to the San Francisco 49ers, an injury that should sideline him for a few weeks.

Breer originally reported, citing a league source, that the injury to Cole "definitely could be serious."

Cole, in his seventh season, had one sack in each of the Eagles' first three games this season. In the previous four years, Cole had a total of 44 sacks, and he's got 60 career sacks.
