Whatever the disconnect between Earl Wolff and Chip Kelly over the safety's recovery from knee surgery, the only opinion that counts in terms of the player's future with the Eagles is the coach's. And right now, Kelly has made it quite clear that he believes Wolff should be practicing. "He's been cleared from Dr. [James] Andrews a couple weeks ago," Kelly said on Tuesday, "but it's what he can tolerate. " Wolff had a different interpretation. "He didn't clear me to come out here and be 100 percent," Wolff said of Andrews, the orthopedic surgeon who has been the go-to guy for pro athletes' injuries.

With a brace covering his twice surgically repaired left knee, Sam Bradford participated in individual passing drills with the other three Eagles quarterbacks during organized team activities Thursday. But when practice progressed to seven-on-seven and 11-on-11 drills, Bradford became a bystander. The presumed starting quarterback was a limited participant at the NovaCare Complex, as he has been all week. Coach Chip Kelly said that Bradford is "right on schedule" in his return from a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee.

ATLANTA - Yet another hitless night Monday led Ryne Sandberg to omit Chase Utley's name from his Tuesday lineup card. The Phillies manager said there is "a pretty good possibility" that the struggling second baseman will sit Wednesday, too, giving him a three-day "mental break" ahead of Friday's series opener against the Mets. "As much mental work and effort and everything that Chase puts into a daily routine of his and not having any luck along with it," Sandberg said before the game against the Braves, "that's the way that I'm leaning right now. " A prolonged slump to begin the season has Utley hitting .103 with an on-base-plus-slugging percentage of just .389.

ATLANTA - While he rehabilitated from the Tommy John surgery that ended his 2013 season after just two starts, Chad Billingsley said he could somewhat envision the day of his return to the mound. But when he tore his flexor tendon while he was on the comeback trail, Billingsley questioned whether he would ever get back. "And here I am right now," he said with a big smile Monday afternoon at Turner Field, "taking the field [Tuesday] and pitching on a big-league mound. " More than two years since his last major-league start, Billingsley will officially complete his long road back from consecutive elbow surgeries Tuesday night against the Braves.

ST. LOUIS - David Buchanan faced 21 batters Thursday in a 9-3 Phillies loss to the Cardinals, and 11 of them reached base. The second-year righthander left Busch Stadium with the worst rate of combined walks and hits per innings pitched (1.91) among 131 qualified major-league starters. "I want my team to win a game that I pitch in," he said. "I'm not looking at my record. I want my team to win when I pitch in a ball game. I don't care how it happens. [I'm] 0 for 5 right now. But I want my team to be confident when I take that mound.

ALLENTOWN - The last group of IronPigs fans made their way around the infield's warning track, where players lined up on the grass and waited to pose with fans on team photo night, and the PA announcer called out a warning of 3 minutes remaining in the photo session. The line in front of Domonic Brown was still a few families deep. The 27-year-old outfielder was included on the Major League All-Star ballot released yesterday - he played in the 2013 All-Game Game - but he has yet to play in a regular-season game for the Phillies this year.

ST. LOUIS - The Phillies have not determined how many games Domonic Brown will spend in triple A before he is recalled. Manager Ryne Sandberg said the length of Brown's stay with Lehigh Valley will hinge on when the rightfielder shows he's ready to help the major-league club. "It's really for his benefit," Sandberg said, "to really work on some things and to get right. " Brown, 27, was optioned to triple A on Tuesday upon his activation from the 15-day disabled list. He had spent the last week and a half with the IronPigs on a rehab assignment but struggled at the plate.

ST. LOUIS - Outside the home dugout at Busch Stadium yesterday afternoon, minutes before the Cardinals took batting practice, a herd of reporters gathered. General manager John Mozeliak announced that longtime ace Adam Wainwright had a complete tear of his left Achilles' and would miss the remainder of the season. Across the way, inside the visiting clubhouse, Ryan Howard felt for his fellow competitor. "You never want to see anyone go down with injury, especially one like that," Howard said.

THE RETURN of Domonic Brown from the disabled list could hasten the end of the Grady Sizemore era in Philadelphia. The 32-year-old outfielder entered yesterday hitting .133 (4-for-30) with a double, one walk and five strikeouts, numbers that were similar to his production during spring training. The Phillies gave Sizemore $2 million guaranteed to re-sign with the club early in the offseason, but it's hard to come up with a reason why he shouldn't be the odd man out if the Phillies decide to add Brown to the active roster by Wednesday, when his 20-day rehab assignment for an Achilles' tendon injury is set to expire.

Much attention has been paid to the early-season struggles of Chase Utley and Ryan Howard. The Phillies' third-longest tenured player also has experienced a slow start to the season at the plate. Carlos Ruiz entered Saturday's game against the Braves with eight hits - all singles - and just one RBI in 42 at-bats. The veteran catcher leads the Phillies in walks (six) but has scored only once, the run that capped the team's 10-inning home win against the Nationals on April 11. Ruiz, 36, batted seventh for the second consecutive game Saturday.
