Eagles could be without key starters on Defense vs Vikings
21 October 2016 Eagles News
Head coach Doug Pederson noted that Bennie Logan(groin), Mychal Kendricks(ribs),Leodis McKelvin (hamstring) and Ron Brooks (calf) are all listed as “questionable” for Sunday’s game versus the Vikings.
From the looks of it, Bennie Logan could be the one out of the bunch to miss this weeks game. So far this week, Logan has not practiced at all and will not practice on Friday. The Birds will look to Beau Allen to take Logan’s place if he is unable to go. Last week, Allen did a decent job in Logan’s absence, during their loss to the Redskins, however, Allen has big shoes to fill on Sunday.
Both Kendricks and McKelvin we’re able to practice in full yesterday, and it looks as if they’ll be able to give a go. However, with McKelvin hamstring issue, he has not been able to last an entire game.
On Thursday, Brooks was limited during Thursday’s practice but it’s possible we could see him out there versus the Vikings on Sunday. If Brooks is unable to give it a go, the Eagles will turn to both Malcolm Jenkins (in nickel) and Jalen Mills to take over slot duties in Brooks’ absence, with Jaylen Watkins manning the safety position.
