Earl Wolff out for multiple weeks, most serious of three Eagles injuries vs. Packers

Earl Wolff’s knee injury will keep him out for multiple weeks, general manager Howie Roseman said on his weekly radio show on 94-WIP. Linebacker Mychal Kendricks (knee) and tackle Jason Peters (quadriceps) also left Sunday’s 27-13 win over the Green Bay Packers, but neither injury is as serious as Wolff's. The status of Kendricks and Peters for Sunday's game against Washington is up in the air for this week.

Earl Wolff’s knee injury will keep him out for multiple weeks, general manager Howie Roseman said on his weekly radio show on 94-WIP. Linebacker Mychal Kendricks (knee) and tackle Jason Peters (quadriceps) also left Sunday’s 27-13 win over the Green Bay Packers, but neither injury is as serious as Wolff's. The status of Kendricks and Peters for Sunday's game against Washington is up in the air for this week.

The good news for the Eagles is that Kendricks did not sustain a torn anterior cruciate ligament, which would have ended his season.

Coach Chip Kelly spoke to the injured players on the team plane, and they all said they feel “pretty good” and are “ready to go.” Kelly is reluctant to take what the players say at full value, because quarterback Michael Vick and safety Patrick Chung have expressed that sentiment this season with their injuries, only to realize they were not ready upon their returns.

“I 'm not an expert, so I just defer to [the medical staff],” Kelly said. “I always defer to the doctors and training staff to tell us how long they're in, how long they're out. Sometimes they look a little bit worse than they are.”

Is Chip Kelly handling the QB situation the right way?
Yes. It’s fine for him to evaluate things week-to-week.
No. Nick Foles has earned the starter’s job and should have it.

Kelly said Kendricks did not think there was “anything big-time wrong with him.”  Peters told Kelly he was going to play this week, which Peters has said with previous injuries this season. Peters was correct each time; he has not missed a start.
