Earl Wolff questionable for Eagles

Wolff AP

When it comes to the Eagles’ injuries, there aren’t many question marks for the team’s wild-card game.

The biggest question relates to safety Earl Wolff, who is questionable with a knee injury.  Wolff has missed five of the last six games, and he was a full participant in practice on Thursday and Friday after missing Wednesday’s session.

Guard Julian Vandervelde is out with a back injury.  Four others are probable:  safety Colt Anderson (knee); receiver Jason Avant (shoulder); cornerback Brandon Boykin (hip); and linebacker Mychal Kendricks (knee).

The Eagles host the Saints on Saturday night.  On NBC.

    I hope he’s healthy enough to play and be effective. Patrick Chung only marginally better than a cardboard cutout of Patrick Chung.

    Wolff would be a big upgrade over Chung. Go Birds!!!!

    No wolff and Boykins in the slot. Brees is licking his chops. Saints Big.

    I think Blaine Bishop would be an upgrade. And It hurts me to write those words. Because I still dont forgive him or Kirkland.

    If Patrick Chung is only marginally better than a cardboard cutout of Patrick Chung, then how bad does that make Kurt Coleman? lol

    I’ve never seen a 5fth round rookie get so much publicity. I mean if we are counting on him what does that say about our safeties? its not as big a deal as them losing their rookie safety he was a stud. ours is raw. Brees will b licking his chops cause it will lessen his chapped lips bundle up saints. its cold up here. Weaher will b more a factor than Wolff. and as Birds fans we shouldn’t count on either.

    Makes it very clear that the safety position needs to be a very high draft priority.

    If you’ve watched the Eagles this year, and believe that, you are crazy. The Eagles turnaround to when they went on that long streak of holding teams under 17, started immediately when Wolff and Dixon started getting more time (by consequence, Sapoaga and Chung got none, Sap got released)

    Chung does nothing well, so it’s not even like you can hide him by just letting him cover, or having him do extra run support, or even blitz (he seems to TRY to run into blockers). Add that to the fact that he can’t tackle, and isn’t much of a hitter. He is so bad, that if Wolff doesn’t play, he is going to split time with Coleman, who is flat out terrible (like him on ST though)

    Wolff is no B-Dawk. but when you are dealing with replacing a terrible player, someone who is adequate is a huge upgrade. Wolff tackles well, hits hard, is ok in coverage, and a little better than that in run support, and does a MUCH better job of getting pressure when they send him. Where a guy was drafted only matters until he signs his contract, then it’s what he does. Wolff has been the best safety on the roster this year (not that saying that is the biggest compliment ever, his biggest competition is Nate Allen, who has improved to below average)
