The Eagles are crossing their fingers about the availability of defensive tackle Fletcher Cox (above, calf) and running back Wendell Smallwood (knee) for tomorrow night’s game at Carolina.

Coach Doug Pederson today called both “game-time decisions.”

They’ve been without the Pro Bowl lineman for two games; Smallwood, the team’s second-leading rusher, missed last week’s win versus the Cardinals.

Cox was a full participant in yesterday’s practice while Smallwood remained out. Having both would be a welcome sight for the Eagles, on the eve of a clash between two of the only three teams in the conference with 4-1 records.
