Eagles aren’t waiting for Earl Wolff to get healthy anymore

Eagles safety Earl Wolff said recently that his injured knee was getting “worse and worse” and he’d been out of practice seeing doctors in an effort to see if there was a way to get things moving in the opposite direction.

The Eagles aren’t waiting around to find out if someone has the right short-term prescription. Tim McManus of 97.5 The Fanatic was the first to report that the team has waived Wolff with the injured designation and several other Eagles reporters have followed up with confirmation of the news.

Wolff will now be available to the other 31 teams on waivers. Should he pass through unclaimed, he can revert to injured reserve with the Eagles or reach a settlement with the team that makes him a free agent.

Wolff played 18 games and made seven starts for the Eagles since joining the team as a fifth-round pick in the 2013 draft. He had 52 tackles and an interception in those appearances.

  1. He’s had way more knee problems then Sam Bradford. That should tell you all you need to know.

  2. It is a shame. Micro fracture surgery this off season and he still couldn’t even practice. I believe it is really bone on bone. Unfortunately for Earl Wolffe that is bad.
    Maybe there is a slight chance he gets lucky anf healtht then a team signs him. He has ability and be a decent/good safety that really can hit. Best of luck Earl!

  3. Looked to have talent coming out, but the guy is always hurt. What makes it worse, is he won’t play hurt (most guys won’t play injured, but always play hurt). He was quoted as saying he didn’t feel he should practice or play if he is not completely 100% healthy……what play in the NFL is 100% healthy by the end of training camp, let alone in December? Nicks and scrapes are part of the game

    Could of really stepped up in a position of major need last year, but kept missing games and not practicing for trivial injuries (until he finally played and went down with an unrelated injury). Best of luck to him in the future, but he’s going to have to toughen up if he’s going to make anything of his NFL career

  4. Charming to hear fat slovenly keyboard jockeys who are criticizing a player who has had micro fracture surgery and has bone on bone condition in his knee. I don’t care if you are Brian Dawkins, you aren’t going to play under those circumstances.

    I don’t criticize for not playing this year. I criticize for him not playing the other 2 full years because he was a little bit sore. He said he was “only 90%”. How many NFL players play every week below 90%?
