Eagles Injury Update: Mychal Kendricks, Bradley Fletcher say they will return against Arizona

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

Checking up on the Eagles injuries before the bye week.

The Philadelphia Eagles held their last practice before the bye week on Tuesday. They will return to action next Tuesday as they prepare to face the Cardinals in Week 13.

Recently the Eagles have faced a number of injury issues that have tested the team's depth. Against the Redskins, three starters were out on defense: linebacker Mychal Kendricks, safety Earl Wolff, and cornerback Bradley Fletcher. Having the bye week to rest is fortunate for their chances of returning. Jason Peters played against Washington but he's been playing through injuries (shoulder, broken finger, pectoral) all year. Michael Vick is still dealing with a hamstring injury. Jake Knott also has a hamstring injury. They could probably use some rest as well.

According to Eagles beat reporters, Michael Vick, Mychal Kendricks, Bradley Fletcher, Jake Knott, and Jason Peters all practiced on Tuesday. Kendricks was said to have his helmet on but wasn't doing much at practice.  Earl Wolff and Colt Anderson did not participate in practice. It was reported early last week that Wolff's injury is believed to be a multi-week injury. He may not be ready to return right after the bye. Derrick Gunn of CSN reports that Wolff may be out until December 8th or longer:

The Eagles are fortunate to have this week off to get healthy and prepare to make a playoff push here in the final stretch.

[UPDATE by Brandon Lee Gowton, 11/19/13 1:46 PM EST ] - Bradley Fletcher and Mychal Kendrick each said they'll be back against Arizona.
