On Thursday the Eagles had their penultimate practice session before Saturday night's Wild Card matchup against the New Orleans Saints. It was a walkthrough, but nonetheless the big news is that safety Early Wolff, who is still battling a nagging knee injury, participated and felt optimistic about his chances to play against the Saints, provided there are no setbacks tomorrow. Center Julian Vandervelde did not practice for the second straight day and is still sidelined by a back injury that forced him to miss the game against the Dallas Cowboys.
Other full participants in Thursday's walkthrough: S Colt Anderson (knee), WR Jason Avant (shoulder), CB Brandon Boykin (hip), LB Mychal Kendricks (knee)
Update: Most notable on the injury report front for the Saints is that running back Pierre Thomas (chest) did not practice Thursday. Thomas is the team's leading rusher (549 yards). Safety Rafael Bush (ankle) also did not practice.
