Remains sidelined

Wallace (ankle) is inactive for Sunday's playoff game against the Saints.

Analysis: With Wallace still sidelined, Alshon Jeffery, Nelson Agholor and Golden Tate are in line to head the Eagles' wideout corps in Sunday's divisional-round contest.

Questionable for divisional round

Wallace (ankle) is listed as questionable for Sunday's divisional-round game at New Orleans.

Analysis: Wallace was ruled out prior to the two games immediately following his activation from injured reserve, so his current listing is a step in the right direction. Others in the receiving corps dealt with injuries this week -- Alshon Jeffery (ribs) and Golden Tate (knee) -- which could be reason enough to keep Wallace active this weekend in case one or both have in-game setbacks. Such a decision will be made approximately 90 minutes before Sunday's 4:40 PM ET kickoff.

Remains limited

Wallace (ankle) is listed as limited on Wednesday's estimated injury report.

Analysis: Wallace continues to have a cap on his practice reps, which has been his reality since he was activated from injury reserve on Dec. 24. On Monday, coach Doug Pederson told Daniel Gallen of The Harrisburg Patriot-News that Wallace remains "day-to-day," which isn't exactly a ringing endorsement for his first game action since Week 2. However, helping Wallace's cause slightly was the inclusion of Alshon Jeffery (rib) and Golden Tate (knee) on Wednesday's report as limited participants.

Considered day-to-day

Coach Doug Pederson relayed Monday that Wallace (ankle) is day-to-day as Sunday's playoff game against the Saints approaches, Daniel Gallen of The Harrisburg Patriot-News reports.

Analysis: Wallace, who hasn't played since Week 2, was activated off IR on Dec. 24. While he's inching closer to a return to action, the wideout is hardly a lock to suit up Sunday, and even if he does, Wallace would have Alshon Jeffery, Nelson Agholor and Golden Tate to compete with for targets in the Eagles' Nick Foles-helmed offense.

Sidelined again Sunday

Wallace (ankle) has been ruled out for Sunday's wild-card game in Chicago.

Analysis: Since he was activated from injured reserve on Dec. 24, Wallace has been listed as a limited participant on Eagles injury reports, but the activity hasn't been enough for him to gain clearance to play in a game. Perhaps the team would throw caution to the wind if one of Alshon Jeffery, Nelson Agholor or Golden Tate suffered an injury in the postseason. That said, Wallace may have to elevate to "full" before a return to game action will be considered.

Limited participant Thursday

Wallace (ankle) was again a limited participant in practice Thursday, Dave Zangaro of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports.

Analysis: Wallace's limited participation in both of the first two practices is an encouraging sign, though he's not expected to return for the wild-card game against the Bears. Even if he makes a quick recovery, Alshon Jeffrey, Nelson Agholor and Golden Tate are slotted in as the Eagles' top three receivers for the contest.

Starts week listed as limited

Wallace (fibula) is listed as a limited participant on Wednesday's estimated practice report, Martin Frank of The Delaware News Journal reports.

Analysis: While he isn't expected to return for the wild-card round, Wallace might eventually secure a minor role in the Philadelphia offense if the team makes another deep playoff run. Alshon Jeffery, Nelson Agholor and Golden Tate will serve as the three-wide alignment Sunday in Chicago.

Jan 2, 2019 1:02 PM EST

Not expected to play in Chicago

Wallace (fibula) isn't expected to return for Sunday's playoff game in Chicago, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports.

Analysis: Eagles coach Doug Pederson said Wallace likely will remain limited to individual drills during practice this week. It isn't a major concern for the Philadelphia offense, as Wallace would have a tough time getting snaps behind Alshon Jeffery, Nelson Agholor and Golden Tate.

Dec 31, 2018 9:29 AM EST

Won't return Week 17

The Eagles ruled out Wallace (fibula) for Sunday's game at Washington, Zack Rosenblatt of NJ.com reports.

Analysis: The Eagles opened the door for Wallace to return by activating him from injured reserve Monday. He proceeded to practice in a limited fashion all week, but his next appearance will have to wait until either the postseason (a win by Philly this weekend most coincide with a Vikings loss to the Bears) or the 2019 campaign. With Wallace officially out, the Eagles will trust in Alshon Jeffery, Nelson Agholor and Golden Tate as the top three wide receivers.

Dec 28, 2018 12:21 PM EST

Set to be limited Friday

Coach Doug Pederson said Wallace (lower leg) will be limited at practice Friday, Martin Frank of The Delaware News Journal reports.

Analysis: Wallace participated in individual drills Thursday and is set to see a similar practice regimen Friday, Dave Zangaro of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports. The veteran wide receiver hasn't appeared to show any issues at practice this week from the fractured right fibula that's sidelined him since Week 2, but he seems headed for a questionable tag for Sunday's game at Washington. The Eagles' official injury report will come out later Friday and should provide additional clarity to his status.

Dec 28, 2018 7:51 AM EST

Limited showing Thursday

Wallace (ankle) practiced in a limited fashion Thursday.

Analysis: Wallace was tabbed with a "limited" tag for the second straight session, but the Eagles actually took the practice field rather than release an estimated injury report. It marked Wallace's first appearance in practice since he was activated from injured reserve, where he resided from Week 2 through Monday due to a fractured right fibula. Per Dave Zangaro of NBC Sports Philadelphia, Wallace's workload Thursday included running routes and catching passes, but it remains to be seen if he'll do enough to be cleared to suit up Sunday in Washington.

Dec 27, 2018 1:12 PM EST

Listed as limited

The Eagles listed Wallace (lower leg) as a limited participant in Wednesday's practice, Dave Zangaro of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports.

Analysis: The practice status is an estimation, as Wednesday's practice was just a walk-through. Wallace was activated from injured reserve Monday, potentially setting him up to return for Week 17 at Washington and/or a playoff run. He's expected to some running Thursday, but it isn't clear when he'll be ready to take contact. Wallace will probably have a hard time earning snaps even if he's cleared to play.

Dec 26, 2018 12:49 PM EST

Viewed as day to day

Coach Doug Pederson labeled Wallace (lower leg) as day to day Wednesday and wouldn't confirm that the wideout would play Sunday in Washington, Eliot Shorr-Parks of Sports Radio 94 WIP Philadelphia reports.

Analysis: With Wallace on the cusp of practicing after a 14-week absence, the Eagles elected to activate him from injured reserve Monday before he actually performed any on-field work. According to Shorr-Parks, Wallace is slated to take part in Wednesday's walk-through session and will "run around" during Thursday's practice, but it's uncertain if he'll be able to take any contact either day. With that in mind, Wallace will likely be listed as a limited participant later Wednesday when the Eagles release their first practice report of the week, which won't provide much of a hint with regards to his availability for the season finale. Even if Wallace is active for that contest, his long layoff from action might prompt the Eagles to restrict his usage on offense.

Gets activated from IR

The Eagles activated Wallace (fibula) from injured reserve Monday, Zack Rosenblatt of NJ.com reports.

Analysis: The Eagles waited until the final week of the season to activate their second and final player from IR, but all cards are being played with a playoff berth on the line. Wallace himself hasn't suited up since Week 2 due to a broken right fibula, so it remains to be seen exactly what he can offer the offense. He failed to haul in any of his three targets from Nick Foles in the first two games of the season, but Wallace has averaged 15 YPC for his career, meaning he could provide a field-stretching aspect, even at 32 years old.

Dec 24, 2018 1:36 PM EST

May practice Wednesday

Wallace (fibula) is expected to take part in individual drills at Wednesday's practice, Zack Rosenblatt of NJ.com reports.

Analysis: Coach Doug Pederson relayed the news, which officially would make Wallace the second Eagle to be designated for a return from injured reserve. The Eagles may be pressing their luck with Wallace because a Week 17 victory must coincide with a Vikings loss in order to reach the playoffs. If he doesn't do enough to play this week, the veteran wide receiver may not have an opportunity to suit up again until the 2019 campaign, which could be in a new locale with free agency incoming in the offseason.

Dec 24, 2018 9:59 AM EST

Not ready for practice

Wallace (leg) has started running but isn't ready to practice, Jeff McLane of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

Analysis: The Eagles haven't exactly laid around waiting since Wallace suffered a broken fibula Week 2, first signing Jordan Matthews and then trading for Golden Tate. The offense still lacks a deep threat with straight-line speed, but it's hard to imagine the 32-year-old Wallace can be that guy while working his way back from such a serious injury. The best-case scenario here is a small role in late December and possibly the playoffs.

Dec 5, 2018 11:09 AM EST

Facing uncertain return date

Coach Doug Pederson was unwilling to commit to Wallace (lower leg) returning from injured reserve this season when asked about the matter Thursday, Zach Berman of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

Analysis: Pederson relayed that neither of the two wideouts listed on IR -- Wallace and Mack Hollins (groin) -- are ready to return to practice yet. The Eagles have one designation available for a player to return from IR, with prior reports suggesting Wallace was more likely than Hollins to make it back on the field in 2018. Wallace previously said that he was hopeful to resume playing in December, but any activation would likely come toward the middle or back end of the month, given his lack of on-field activity to date. The murkiness of Wallace's recovery timeline coupled with the uncertainty of what his role might look like if he's added back to the Eagles' roster this season make it tough to justify holding him or scooping him up off the waiver wire in most formats.

Targeting December return

Wallace (lower leg) said he's hopeful to return from injured reserve at some point in December, Zack Rosenblatt of NJ.com reports.

Analysis: Wallace was spotted Thursday at the Eagles' team facility without a walking boot on his right leg, offering hope that a return to practice might be on the horizon. However, Wallace still appears to be at least a couple weeks away from increasing his on-field activity, as he noted that he's not able to run at full speed yet, per Tim McManus of ESPN.com. The news doesn't amount to a setback for Wallace, who was always trending toward a December return after undergoing surgery Sept. 18 to address a fractured fibula. After designating tight end Richard Rodgers (knee) for a return earlier this week, the Eagles can only designate one more player among their collection of IR players. Wallace is seemingly viewed as the top candidate at this time, as the remaining IR options either aren't key contributors or aren't trending toward being fully healthy by season's end.

Nov 15, 2018 12:47 PM EST

Ditches walking boot

Wallace (fibula) watched Thursday's practice without a walking boot on his right leg, Dave Zangaro of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports.

Analysis: A resident of injured reserve since fracturing his right fibula Week 2, Wallace is slowly but surely getting healthier, but still appeared to be walking with a slight limp Thursday. After the Eagles used one of their designated-to-return slots from IR on Richard Rodgers (knee) earlier this week, the team can only use one more the rest of the way. Wallace is a candidate but seems to be weeks away from forcing the Eagles' hand.

Nov 15, 2018 11:03 AM EST

Still wearing walking boot

Wallace (fibula) was spotted with a walking boot on his right leg in the Eagles' locker room Wednesday, Dave Zangaro of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports.

Analysis: Wallace remains in recovery mode from the fractured right fibula suffered Week 2, which necessitated surgery and his placement on injured reserve. The Eagles can only designate two players to activate from IR in a given season, and given his current standing, Wallace may be behind both Mack Hollins (groin) and RIchard Rodgers (knee) in the pecking order.
