Only one Eagle misses Thursday practice


It must be the smoothies.

Whatever the precise reason, Eagles coach Chip Kelly approaches his first postseason game with a largely healthy roster. It’s a trend that has helped Philly put most of its best players on the field in key late-season games.

The only player absent from practice on Thursday was guard Julian Vandervelde, who has a back injury.

Returning to practice for Thursday’s session was safety Earl Wolff, who has missed five of the last six games with a knee injury. Wolff fully participated in practice.

Also injured but fully participating in practice were safety Colt Anderson (knee), receiver Jason Avant (shoulder), cornerback Brandon Boykin (hip), and linebacker Mychal Kendricks (knee).

The Eagles host the Saints on Saturday night. It’s the only wild-card game that easily sold out.
