Eagles DT Bennie Logan (groin) is practicing fully for Week 10.

It's an upgrade from last week when Logan was limited at practice. He's on track to return Sunday versus the Falcons. Logan hasn't played since straining his groin in Week 6.
Nov 9 - 6:34 PM

Eagles DT Bennie Logan (groin) has been downgraded to out for Week 9 against the Giants.

Logan was originally listed as questionable. It is a bit of a surprise after he got in three limited practices this week. The Eagles will be thin on the defensive line with DT Taylor Hart (ankle) was downgraded to out as well.
Nov 5 - 1:48 PM

Eagles declared NT Bennie Logan, OL Josh Andrews, LB Kamu Grugier-Hill, OL Dillon Gordon, WR Bryce Treggs, OL Isaac Seumalo, and DT Taylor Hart inactive for Week 8 against the Cowboys.

Beau Allen will make another start at nose tackle. Outside of Logan, the Eagles are healthy going into Sunday night.
Oct 30 - 7:00 PM

Eagles NT Bennie Logan (groin) has been ruled out for Week 8 against the Cowboys.

Logan anchors the Eagles' run defense, so this is a big boost to Ezekiel Elliott's stock. Despite the Eagles' success on defense, Zeke is a locked-in RB1.
Oct 28 - 11:35 AM

Eagles declared DT Bennie Logan (groin), WR Bryce Treggs, S Terrence Brooks, CB C.J. Smith, OL Josh Andrews, OL Dillon Gordon, and OL Isaac Seumalo inactive for Week 7 against the Vikings.

Logan is the only one sitting out due to injury. Beau Allen should see more snaps with Logan sidelined.
Oct 23 - 11:31 AM

Eagles DT Bennie Logan is week to week with a strained groin.

It is a tough blow for a run defense which is suddenly struggling. Beau Allen should see more snaps with Logan sidelined.
Oct 17 - 12:09 PM

Eagles DT Bennie Logan (calf) is active for Week 5 against the Lions.

Logan was listed as questionable and was the only player on the Eagles' injury report. Coming out of the bye, the Eagles declared WR Bryce Treggs, S Terrence Brooks, DE Steven Means, C Josh Andrews, OT Dillon Gordon, OT Halapoulivaati Vaitai, and OG Isaac Seumalo inactive.
Oct 9 - 11:36 AM

Eagles placed NT Bennie Logan (calf) on injured reserve.

Logan was already ruled out for Sunday's finale. He had 55 tackles, nine TFLs, and one sack in 14 games, grading as PFF's No. 11 run stopper. Beau Allen will start in Logan's place.
Jan 2 - 3:30 PM

Eagles NT Bennie Logan could miss the rest of the season with a calf injury.

The injury must have happened in Sunday's loss to Arizona. Logan has been a solid run defender this year and won't be easy to replace. Beau Allen is next up on the depth chart at nose tackle.

Eagles NT Bennie Logan (knee, questionable) was added to the injury report on Sunday.

He could be a game-time decision. Logan owns PFF's 12th-highest defensive tackle grade out of 67 qualifiers. Beau Allen would start at nose tackle if Logan is forced to sit against New England.

Eagles coach Chip Kelly said NT Bennie Logan "may be playing as well as anybody on our defensive line right now."

Considering the other members of the defensive line are Fletcher Cox and Cedric Thornton, that is high praise indeed. The Eagles' stout defensive line anchors one of the best front sevens in the league. Philadelphia should be difficult to run on this season.

Eagles NT Bennie Logan led all defensive tackles in solo tackles last season with 44.

Also from Pro Football Focus, Logan was second among 81 qualifying defensive tackles in solo stops (solo tackles that constitute an offensive failure). The tackle stat has become mostly meaningless in the football world, so these numbers give us a better idea. The Eagles' run defense allowed just 3.7 YPC last season (fourth in the NFL), and Philly was one of four teams not to allow a 40-yard run.

Eagles second-year NT Bennie Logan is tipping the scales at 6'2/319 after adding ten pounds this offseason.

Logan is still "undersized" for a typical 3-4 nose tackle, but that is by design. "The way we play our defense, you've got to be able to run," said Logan, who does not feel he could accomplish what his coaches want him to do at 330-plus pounds. Logan will begin the season as Philadelphia's starting nose tackle.

Eagles GM Howie Roseman praised second-year NT Bennie Logan and said he has a bright future.

"He has a frame that can easily withstand 320 pounds," Roseman said. "He's got 34-inch arms. He has really big hands. His wingspan is actually six inches bigger than his height." Logan, the 67th pick in last year's draft, started the final eight games of his rookie season and was a solid run stopper despite his slender frame. He can also play five-technique in the Eagles' 3-4 scheme.
