Eagles rookie safety Earl Wolff has practiced for each of the past two days for the first-time since going down with an injury against the Packers in November.  After not stepping foot on a football field wearing anything more than sweatpants and his jersey in exactly one month, Eagles rookie safety Earl Wolff returned to work Tuesday. Wolff injured his knee against the Green Bay Packers back on November 10th at Lambeau Field and had been sidelined ever since with what he called a hyper-extension. On Tuesday Wolff returned to practice and said afterwards that he's closer now to returning to action than he has been since suffering the injury. Wolff said he was tentative after Tuesday's practice but seemed to be in much better spirits and more confident about his status following Wednesday's workout.  "I'm definitely closer, hopefully but we'll see where it goes," Wolff said Wednesday. "I'd say I'm 85-90 percent, I'm just trying to get to one hundred."  Asked if he thinks he'll be able to suit up against the Vikings Wolff responded: "Hopefully."  Officially Wolff is listed as day-to-day and Patrick Chung has been playing in the rookie's place the past several weeks.  “We’re just kinda taking that as it comes,” defensive coordinator Bill Davis said Tuesday, adding that Wolff would “try a little bit today” and see how the knee responds to the workload. It's now been two consecutive days that Wolff has been out there practicing with his teamates. Only Najee Goode is sidelined on one of the healthier teams in the league right now.   The Eagles hope to have Wolff back as soon as possible. The team's fifth round draft choice impressed the coaching staff enough to name him the starter over Chung when the veteran suffered a shoulder injury earlier this season.  He has 50 total tackles in his 10 games and five passes defended and one interception this season.   Matt Lombardo is the Editor-In-Chief of Eagledelphia and also an on-air personality on 97.5 FM The Fanatic in Philadelphia.
