The Eagles will try to take another step toward an NFC East title against the Vikings this weekend and they might have to do it without one of their starting cornerbacks.

Cary Williams showed up as limited on Thursday’s injury report because of a hamstring injury. Williams was not on the injury report at all on Wednesday and Zach Berman of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports that he was on the field for the start of Thursday’s work, which suggests picked up the injury during Thursday’s practice.

Either way, his status will be something to watch when the Eagles practice and release their final injury report of the week on Friday. He’s started all 13 games this year, turning in play that has fluctuated from good to inadequate over that span. Inconsistent though he may be, Williams’ absence would test the Eagles’ depth at cornerback beyond Bradley Fletcher and Brandon Boykin.

Safety Earl Wolff and linebacker Najeh Goode were also limited for the Eagles on Thursday.
