The Eagles listed safety Earl Wolff as questionable for Saturday's first-round playoff game against the Saints.

Wolff was a full participant in both Thursday and Friday's light practices after sitting out Tuesday and Wednesday with a knee injury. After missing four games, Wolff returned against the Bears on Dec. 22, but re-injured a knee sprain. He sat out the following week against the Cowboys.

Patrick Chung is expected to start even if Wolff is cleared to dress. Chung and Kurt Coleman split first-team practice repetitions this week. They shared duties three weeks ago against the Vikings because Coleman injured his hamstring. Coleman returned for the Cowboys game, but Chung played opposite Nate Allen for the entire game.

Backup Center Julian Vandervelde was listed as out for the second straight week with a back injury. Starting left guard Evan Mathis is the emergency center if starter Jason Kelce were to leave Saturday's game.
