The Philadelphia Eagles have waived/injured safety Earl Wolff, per Tim McManus of Birds 24/7.

Wolff, entering his third year after being a 5th round draft pick in 2013, was inactive on Sunday due to a continuing right knee injury.

"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."

Wolff had originally injured his knee during his rookie season, and was put on injured reserve in November of 2014 after undergoing surgery to repair a micro fracture. In addition to missing Sunday's pre-season game against the Colts, Wolff had missed multiple practices and OTAs, despite being cleared by doctors to practice. This did not endear Wolff to Chip Kelly, with the frustrations apparently hitting a boiling point prior to tomorrow's pre-season game against the Ravens. The Eagles declined to comment on McManus's report.
