Anderson Returns To Practice

The Eagles got good news on the injury front as reserve safety and special teams demon Colt Anderson returned to practice for the first time since suffering a knee injury late in the Minnesota game back on December 15.

Anderson was a full participant and is on track to return Saturday against the New Orleans Saints.

However, safety Earl Wolff's status remains up in the air. After expressing optimism that he will play on Tuesday, Wolff did not participate in Wednesday's practice. He has missed five of the last six games with a knee injury. Head coach Chip Kelly said that Wolff needs time on the practice field.

"Earl has to practice if he's going to play," Kelly said. "He's got to get out there at some point in time."

The Eagles have a walkthrough on Thursday before Friday's final practice of the week.

Backup center Julian Vandervelde was the only other player who did not practice on Wednesday. Vandervelde missed last Sunday's game due to a back injury.

The rest of the team fully participated in Wednesday's training session. The other Eagles listed on the injury report included Anderson, wide receiver Jason Avant (shoulder), cornerback Brandon Boykin (hip) and linebacker Mychal Kendricks (knee).

For the New Orleans Saints, they only had two players on their injury report - running back Pierre Thomas (chest) and safety Rafael Bush (ankle) both did not practice.

Thomas' absence is intriguing because he is not only their leading rusher (549 yards in 2013), but he was also second on the team with 77 receptions.
