Eagles Healthy Entering Stretch Run
The Eagles are in pretty good shape from a health standpoint as they enter the home stretch.
Mychal Kendricks (knee) and Bradley Fletcher (pec) participated in practice Tuesday after sitting out against Washington. Both are expected to play Sunday against Arizona. Jason Peters (quad, pec) was also a go.
Earl Wolff was the only player sidelined. The rookie safety is still dealing with a knee injury. Chip Kelly does not expect him to be ready for Sunday, and was unsure about his availability beyond that.
“You’ve gotta have all hands on deck, and I think it is a good situation,” said Kelly. “I wish we had Earl [also] but besides that…The guys have done a really good job of taking care of themselves and putting themselves in position, so when we get out there today everybody except Earl will go.”
Michael Vick (hamstring) has been cleared to practice and, barring a setback, will serve as the No. 2 quarterback against Arizona. Nick Foles was officially named the starter for the rest of the way Tuesday. Vick, now healthy, will be waiting in the wings.
“It’s the same thing I told Nick when we met in August is what I told Mike today: He’s a chin strap from having to go in again,” said Kelly. “We need to get him back up. The thing with Mike is he’s missed a fair amount of time here, so we have to get him back up to speed.”
