Safety Earl Wolff, who hasn’t practiced or played since hurting his knee in the Green Bay game on Nov. 10, did not appear to be practicing Tuesday when the Eagles returned to work following their win over the Cards.
Wolff was out at practice with a jersey on during the brief period that practice was open to the media but was wearing sweatpants instead of shorts and did not have a helmet, which generally means a player is not going to participate in any of the drills.
Wolff and Chung split reps at free safety for much of the season, but Wolff had become the starter ahead of Patrick Chung when he got hurt against the Packers. Chung, who had missed four games of his own with injuries, has started the last two games and has not played well, especially against Arizona on Sunday.
The only other safeties on the roster are former starter Kurt Coleman and special teams ace Colt Anderson.
Defensive coordinator Billy Davis said he didn’t know when Wolff would be able to practice. He called him day-to-day, so it’s possible he will return to work later this week and be available to play against the Lions on Sunday.
The Eagles have not specified exactly what Wolff’s knee injury is.
Wide receiver Jeff Maehl, who suffered a head injury and possible concussion Sunday, was not at practice.
Linebacker Najee Goode, who suffered a hamstring injury on Sunday, was at practice but did not appear to be participating.
