Earl Wolff Still Out for Eagles

WolffEarl Wolff hasn't participated in practice for the Eagles since injuring his knee against the Green Bay Packers and appears to be at least a week away from returning. 

Philadelphia Eagles rookie safety Earl Wolff said in the days following his knee injury against the Green Bay Packers back on November 10th does not appear to be close to returning to action. 

Wolff, 23 was standing out on the practice fields wearing his jersey and pants but without his helmet during the initial brief portion of practice that is open to the media. Afterwards he appeared to be walking with a limp through the hallway towards the locker room.

The North Carolina State product bypassed Patrick Chung on the depth chart earlier this year after splitting time with the veteran prior to his injury against the Packers. 

In five games Wolff has amassed 45 tackles and one interception. 

The Eagles have yet to give a full explanation of Wolff's injury, but he has repeatedly called it a hyper-extension.

Defensive Coordinator Bill Davis said Tuesday that Wolff is officially day-to-day, but he does not know when he will be getting his starting safety back on the field. 

Nate Allen has been exceptional this season and Chung played reasonably well against the Cardinals, but without Wolff the Eagles depth in the secondary will be tested against the likes of Matthew Stafford and Calvin Johnson Sunday against the Detroit Lions
