Philadelphia Eagles safety Earl Wolff struggling with knee injury

The Philadelphia Eagles made some pretty big gambles on players with far from clean injury records this off-season.

Taking Risks

The Eagles traded LeSean McCoy to the Buffalo Bills for linebacker Kiko Alonso, who missed the entire 2014 season with a torn ACL, while they also made Sam Bradford their starting quarterback despite his horrible record with injuries.

However, those two have held up so far. But the Eagles haven't escaped the injury curse yet as safety Earl Wolff has revealed that he is seriously struggling in pre-season.

Injured Wolff

Wolff ended last year on the injured reserve list and was forced to have surgery after the season, but things have been moving in the wrong direction recently.

Wolff didn’t play against the Colts on Sunday and said he re-aggravated the injury at some point in practice during an interview with Eliot Shorr-Parks of NJ Advance Media.

"It's just been getting worse and worse every day," Wolff said yesterday. "It got to the point where I couldn't walk after practice."

Another Surgery?

Wolff doesn’t know if he’ll be able to play in the preseason and expects to talk to Dr. James Andrews soon about whether or not another surgery is needed.

"I hope not," Wolff said when asked about the prospect of a further op. "Right now we are just waiting for the swelling to subside."

Losing Wolff would be a blow to the depth in a secondary that’s already lost cornerback JaCorey Shepherd for the season to a torn ACL, suffered last week.
