Only two players were listed as limited in practice on the Philadelphia Eagles official Friday injury report and one of them is ready to go for Sunday's game against the New York Giants. 

Cornerback Brandon Boykin and safety Patrick Chung both were limited for the past two weeks in practice while battling shoulder injuries and on Saturday the team announced Boykin will play Sunday afternoon. 

Boykin in his second NFL season out of the University of Georgia recorded his first career interception off of Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III in the season opener. For the season, the 23-year old has posted 23 tackles, two forced fumbles and an interception primarily playing in the slot. 

Chung will likely be a game time decision but if he is unable to play it will mean rookie Earl Wolff makes his second start of his career at safety.
