Eagles S Earl Wolff (knee) is listed as questionable for Saturday's Wild Card game against the Saints.

Wolff was a full participant in practice on Thursday and Friday after sitting out Wednesday’s session, putting him on track to return after missing five of the last six games. His absence from the lineup would be a concern for the Eagles, as Pat Chung and Nate Allen have struggled in pass coverage all season. Wolff is expected to be a game-time decision.
Jan 3 - 8:18 PM

Eagles S Earl Wolff (knee) is not practicing Wednesday.

Wolff can't get over the hump with his knee injury, aggravating it in Week 16 after missing the previous six weeks. The Saints are going to be looking to expose Pat Chung in a big way on Saturday night.
Jan 1 - 12:01 PM

Eagles S Earl Wolff (knee) is inactive for Sunday night's Week 17 game against the Cowboys.

Wolff suffered a setback with his knee last week and was listed as questionable on the injury report. Nate Allen and Patrick Chung will start at safety in his absence. The rest of the Eagles inactives are QB Matt Barkley, S Colt Anderson, CB Curtis Marsh, RB Matthew Tucker, OL Julian Vandervelde and OT Dennis Kelly.

Eagles S Earl Wolff aggravated his knee injury during Sunday's Week 16 blowout of the Bears.

Finally making his return after six weeks on the sideline, Wolff didn't start and then re-injured his knee during the second quarter. The Eagles will have to roll with Pat Chung for more snaps than they want to in this week's winner take all game at Dallas if Wolff can't go. Kyle Orton has an excellent chance of moving the football.

Eagles S Earl Wolff (knee) is active for Sunday night's Week 16 game against the Bears.

Wolff returns after missing the last four games with a knee injury and is expected to rotate at safety with Patrick Chung. Brandon Boykin (concussion) is also active and will play in nickel packages. The Eagles inactives are QB Matt Barkley, S Colt Anderson, CB Curtis Marsh, RB Matthew Tucker, S Kurt Coleman, OL Matt Tobin and RT Dennis Kelly.
Sun, Dec 22, 2013 07:23:00 PM

Eagles S Earl Wolff (knee) is expected to return and start in Week 16.

The timing is ideal for the Eagles as Pat Chung has gone back into his inept shell. Wolff, a sixth-round rookie, has been out since Week 10.
Mon, Dec 16, 2013 08:43:00 AM

Eagles S Earl Wolff (knee) is inactive for Sunday's Week 15 game against the Vikings.

Wolff has resumed practicing, but he's not quite ready to get back on the field yet. The Eagles defense has been holding up well with Pat Chung and Nate Allen at safety lately anyway. There are no surprises in the rest of the Eagles' inactive list as they prep for a dream matchup at Minnesota's ineffective and injured secondary: QB Matt Barkley, CB Curtis Marsh, RB Matthew Tucker, LB Najee Goode, OL Matt Tobin and OL Dennis Kelly.
Sun, Dec 15, 2013 11:27:00 AM

Eagles S Earl Wolff (knee) has been cleared to practice.

Wolff has missed the last four weeks with a knee injury. He'll attempt to practice Tuesday and is hoping to play in Week 15. With Pat Chung and Nate Allen playing well over the last three games, Wolff will likely play limited snaps if he manages to return Sunday against the Vikings.
Tue, Dec 10, 2013 11:58:00 AM

Eagles S Earl Wolff (knee) won't be back until Week 15 in a best-case scenario.

Wolff has been out since sustaining his knee injury in Week 10. Pat Chung and Nate Allen have held up surprisingly well at the safety spots over the last two weeks, meaning there's no guarantee Wolff will get his job back upon his return.
Wed, Dec 4, 2013 09:57:00 AM

Eagles rookie FS Earl Wolff will miss "multiple weeks" with a knee injury.

Wolff has made six starts through ten Eagles games, recording 45 tackles and an interception. He was replaced in the lineup Sunday by Pat Chung.
Mon, Nov 11, 2013 05:22:00 PM

Eagles FS Earl Wolff left Sunday's Week 10 game at Green Bay with a knee injury and will not return.

Patrick Chung has come on to replace the rookie. Both safeties are major liabilities. The good news for the Eagles is that they're facing Scott Tolzien.
Sun, Nov 10, 2013 02:19:00 PM

Eagles rookie FS Earl Wolff is expected to start Sunday against the Broncos.

With Pat Chung (shoulder) sidelined, Wolff is in line to make his first career start after filling in last week. It's not a huge downgrade for the Eagles. Chung has graded out as one of the least effective safeties this season by Pro Football Focus.
Fri, Sep 27, 2013 10:02:00 AM

Fifth-round FS Earl Wolff has been seeing increased reps with the Eagles' first-team defense.

Wolff started running with the ones earlier this week, and he was back with the starters again Saturday. He didn't start Thursday night's preseason game, but did play 28 snaps and received a solid grade from Pro Football Focus against the run. The Eagles are looking for someone to step up next to Pat Chung.
Sat, Aug 17, 2013 02:02:00 PM

Eagles rookie S Earl Wolff wrapped up OTAs running with the first-team defense.

While we're not willing to make far-reaching conclusions based on participation in noncontact practices, it appears head coach Chip Kelly is willing to give Wolff an opportunity play a significant role if Kenny Phillips (knee) remains sidelined.
