Saints vs. Eagles injury report: Pierre Thomas out, Earl Wolff questionable

The New Orleans Saints will be without Pierre Thomas on Saturday, while the Philadelphia Eagles have listed safety Earl Wolff as questionable.

The New Orleans Saints and Philadelphia Eagles are set to play in the wild card round on Saturday. Both teams are relatively healthy, though there are still a few big names worth noting on the injury reports.

For the Saints, running back Pierre Thomas made a surprise appearance on the injury report this week. New Orleans head coach Sean Payton isn't a fan of divulging injury information, so all that's known is that Thomas has some sort of chest injury. He did not practice at all this week, and has now been ruled out for Saturday's game in Philadelphia.

Of course, the Saints do have plenty of running backs with Mark Ingram, Darren Sproles and Khiry Robinson.

As far as the Eagles go, they have listed safety Earl Wolff as questionable. He missed practice on Tuesday and Wednesday, but participated in a walkthrough on Thursday and a light practice on Friday. Wolff has missed a lot of time with a knee injury, but would be a starter if he plays on Saturday. If not, Patrick Chung and Kurt Coleman will handle the duties.

The full injury report for both teams is below:
