Safety Earl Wolff returned to practice for the Eagles on Thursday for the first time since injuring his knee on November 10 against the Green Bay Packers. The fifth-round pick had emerged as a starting-caliber safety opposite Nate Allen before the injury and is looking forward to getting back on the field. He won't rush it though.
"We'll see," Wolff said, when asked if he'll be able to play this week against the Minnesota Vikings. "That's what I'm going to see.
Wolff will test his body throughout the week before he and the coaching staff make a decision on his availability this weekend.
"Today, I did a little bit," Wolff said. "Tomorrow, I'll do more. Thursday, I'll do even more, just to see how I feel."
On Wednesday, Wolff was officially listed as limited on the team's injury report, but it is still a good sign for Eagles fans that the rookie safety is making his way back to action.
