Starting safety Patrick Chung did not practice this week and was listed as doubtful for Sunday's game against Denver with a shoulder injury. Head coach Chip Kelly said that rookie Earl Wolff will make his first career start if Chung can't play.
"It's going to be a good opportunity, a great challenge," Wolff said on Thursday. "I'm a very competitive guy and I'm just ready to take advantage of every opportunity that I get."
Wolff has seen an increased role in the defense since the start of the season. Wolff said that the key will be seeing the whole field, especially against Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning.
The only other player on the injury report for the Eagles is tackle Jason Peters, who is probable with a finger injury.
It remains to be seen whether Broncos starting cornerback Champ Bailey will make his season debut Sunday after missing the first three games with a foot injury. A limited participant in practice all week, Bailey was listed as questionable on the team's injury report. Bailey told DenverBroncos.com that he'll be on the field when he "feels good."
Starting safety Duke Ihenacho suffered an ankle injury against Oakland on Monday night and is questionable. He practiced for the first time this week on Friday, but was limited. Mike Adams will start at safety if Ihenacho can't play. Starting cornerback Tony Carter has battled an ankle injury, but he was a full participant in Friday's practice and is probable.
Backup middle linebacker Paris Lenon is doubtful with a thigh injury. He did not practice all week. Backup tight end Joel Dreessen is questionable with a knee injury. He was a limited participant in practice all week.
The following Broncos were full participants all week and are listed as probable: running back C.J. Anderson (knee), cornerback Omar Bolden (shoulder), long snapper Aaron Brewer (rib), safety David Bruton (neck), wide receiver Eric Decker (shoulder), tackle Orlando Franklin (shoulder), guard Chris Kuper (ankle), wide receiver Demaryius Thomas (ankle) and wide receiver Wes Welker (ankle).
