Turned out, Earl Wolff was right. The Eagles' rookie safety said he thought he was playing this week, though he didn't practice much and was listed as questionable on the injury report yesterday.

WR Damaris Johnson is inactive, as is corner Curtis Marsh, safety Keelan Johnson, QB Matt Barkley, RB Matthew Tucker, C Julian Vandervelde and OL Dennis Kelly.

As expected, Saints leading rusher Pierre Thomas, injured in the season finale, is inactive. Thomas caught 77 passes this season.

The Eagles get back special teams ace Colt Anderson, who has missed the last two games with a knee problem. Wolff, who hyperextended his right knee Nov. 10 at Green Bay, returned two weeks ago against the Bears and aggravated the injury, keeping him out last week.
