Eagles Injury Update: Everyone Except Earl Wolff is Healthy

Aside from rookie safety Earl Wolff, every Eagles player is healthy.

Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

The Philadelphia Eagles are at full strength heading into their Week 13 match against the Cardinals... almost. The only player that isn't expected to play this week is rookie safety Earl Wolff. Wolff is still recovering from a knee injury he suffered against the Green Bay Packers. Eagles coach Chip Kelly said he doesn't expect Wolff to be able to practice this week. Veteran safety Patrick Chung will start in Wolff's place. It's unclear as to when Wolff will be able to return.

Several Eagles are returning from injuries that have kept them out of action in recent weeks. The most notable of those is Eagles quarterback Michael Vick. Kelly officially named Foles the starter on Tuesday morning, so Vick won't be returning to a starting role. Instead, he will be the primary backup. This relegates rookie QB Matt Barkley to the third string, which is probably good news.

Other returning Eagles include defensive starters inside linebacker Mychal Kendricks and cornerback Bradley Fletcher. Najee Goode and Roc Carmichael have held their own while filling in for the starters, but having Kendricks and Fletcher back is an upgrade.

More injury information will be released this week as we see the official injury updates from Eagles practice, but it's good to see Kelly initially expects all but one to be healthy. The Eagles face a tough test as the 7-4 Arizona Cardinals come to town this week. Having players back from injury will only help Philadelphia's cause.
