UPDATE: The Eagles added Bennie Logan (knee) to the injury report this morning as questionable for today’s game. The nose tackle was not listed on the team’s practice report at all in the past week and was a full participant on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday.

According to CSN Philly’s Derrick Gunn, Cedric Thornton (ankle) will not play today. If Thornton or Logan are unavailable for the game, Brandon Bair is likely to be active.

ESPN’s Adam Schefter also reported that New England’s Danny Amendola (knee) and Jamie Collins (illness) will play.

Through the first four weeks of the season, the Eagles’ defense allowed less than three X-plays — completions of at least 20 yards — per game. Despite their four takeaways and rigid red zone defense, however, they gave up seven such passes against the Saints.

“We were real excited because we had finally made the top five of the positive in X-plays, and we were excited about [how] we were correcting that and going in the right direction,” Bill Davis said. “And then boom, here it comes.” Read more »

Bill Davis wasn’t angry, but as he talked to reporters Tuesday before practice, he did want to clarify that his defense didn’t give up Washington’s game-winning touchdown drive because they were tired.

“I honestly don’t see it that way,” he said. “In talking with the players, we are in great shape. There was nobody talking about being gassed. It’s not an excuse that we’re going to rely on, even though the question isn’t about an excuse. I really believe, guys, that we are in great shape.”

The Eagles were on the field for more than 41 minutes, or nearly 70 percent of the game. Even using Chip Kelly’s preferred method of analyzing number of plays and not time of possession, the Redskins dominated the ball (79 vs. 51).

But if you ask Davis, his three starters — Brandon Bair, Mychal Kendricks and Byron Maxwell — leaving the game with injuries was far more important. Read more »

The Eagles’ season through three weeks has been a fascinating series of twists and turns. Before the opener in Atlanta, many considered the rushing attack to be a potential juggernaut. After Week 3, however, they rank third-to-last in yards per carry.

The secondary, meanwhile, was considered a potential weakness in the offseason. But after the win against New York, the Eagles’ defense ranks in the top-10 in interceptions, opponent passer rating and yards per throw allowed. Read more »

Three-And-Out: Eagles-Cowboys Predictions

PLAYER I’LL BE WATCHING

McManus: Bennie Logan

The Cowboys offensive line is so good, some say, that you can plug just about any back behind it and the machine will still hum. This theory was presented to Bennie Logan at his locker stall following practice earlier this week.

“Oh, cool,” he deadpanned. “Do you buy into it?”

Not really. Do you?

“You already know how I feel.” Read more »
