After missing four games with a knee sprain, safety Earl Wolff was listed as probable on the Eagles’ Friday injury report. The rookie is expected to start ahead of Patrick Chung.

Cornerback Brandon Boykin, who suffered a concussion against the Vikings, returned to practice on Thursday and was also probable. He will play in his usual spot in the slot, but may not return kicks. Brad Smith and Damaris Johnson are other options there.

Safeties Kurt Coleman (hamstring) and Colt Anderson (knee) were listed as out. The Eagles signed Keelan Johnson off the practice squad on Tuesday, anticipating the short numbers at safety.

Linebacker Mychal Kendricks (knee), linebacker Najee Goode (hamstring) and Smith (hamstring) were also listed as probable for Sunday night's game against the Bears.
