Eagles’ Logan Remains Out with Groin Injury
PHILADELPHIA (973espn.com) - The Eagles announced that defensive tackles Bennie Logan (groin) and Taylor Hart (ankle) will miss Sunday's game at the New York Giants.
Both players were able to practice in a limited fashion on Friday and were listed as questionable but things didn’t progress in a positive fashion over the last 24 hours and each will stay home in Philadelphia for Sunday's game.
Logan, the team’s starting nose tackle, will miss his third straight game and Beau Allen will again get the start inside next to Fletcher Cox.
The Eagles brought back Hart by claiming him off waivers from the 49ers late last month but he injured his ankle in practice before the Dallas game and hasn’t been able to work his way back.
Undrafted rookie Destiny Vaeao is the only healthy DT on the roster behind Cox and Allen, although Vinny Curry typically moves inside in the team’s Nascar package during obvious pass-rushing situations.
The Eagles still have an open spot on their 53-man roster after releasing Josh Huff earlier this week and may consider promoting undrafted rookie Aziz Shittu from the practice squad to bolster the defensive tackle position.
On Friday, Philadelphia ruled starting left guard Allen Barbre and special teams contributor Kamu Grugier-Hill out with hamstring injuries. Veteran Stefen Wisniewski will start for Barbre.
