The Philadelphia Eagles host the New Orleans Saints in Saturday’s nightcap of the wild card round. The Eagles fly into the playoffs on fire, winning seven of their last eight games. The Saints were reeling towards the end of the season, but managed to clinch a playoff berth in Week 17 with a 42-17 win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
The Eagles have a few key players on their injury report this week, but not many of them are expected to miss Saturday night’s playoff matchup.
Center Julian Vandervelde did not practice this week with a back injury and has been ruled out of Satuday night’s game.
Safety Earl Wolff was held out of practice Wednesday with a knee injury but was a full participant in Thursday and Friday’s sessions. Wolff’s status for Saturday is questionable.
