Earl Wolff Injury: Eagles safety's knee is an issue once again

New, comments

Not good news.

Bill Streicher-USA TODAY Sports

Philadelphia safety Earl Wolff was one of seven Eagles players listed as inactive prior to the team's preseason opener against the Indianapolis Colts. The reason why, according to Wolff (via Eliot Shorr-Parks of NJ.com), is due to the same knee injury that has bothered Wolff in the past.

"It's just been getting worse and worse every day," Wolff said to NJ Advance Media. "It got to the point where I couldn't walk after practice."

That's certainly not good news for Wolff, who has missed a few practices recently after making it through the first six days of training camp unscathed.

Wolff was placed on injured reserve in 2014 after having a season-ending surgery in late November. Wolff missed missed the entirety of the team's spring practices recovering from this procedure.

The Eagles are thin at safety, but Wolff is going to have a hard time making the team if he can't stay on the field. Meanwhile, veteran Chris Prosinski has stood out in practice while Ed Reynolds flashed with two interceptions during Philadelphia's first preseason game.

Wolff did say that his knee is improving, which could be a good sign for him. But his time is running out.
