The following Eagles players are inactive for Philadelphia’s Week 7 game against the Minnesota Vikings: Bennie Logan, Josh Andrews, Dillon Gordon, Isaac SeumaloTerrence Brooks, C.J. Smith, and Bryce Treggs.

Logan suffered a groin injury during the Eagles’ Week 6 game against Washington. He was listed as questionable on the final injury report despite not practicing all week. Howard Eskin reports Logan is “likely out” for Philadelphia’s Week 8 game against the Dallas Cowboys as well.

The absence of Logan figures to be significant for Philadelphia. The Eagles’ 26-year-old defensive tackle is one of the best run defenders on the team. Jim Schwartz’s unit allowed 230 rushing yards last week while Logan missed some playing time. Beau Allen will start in place of logan.

Eagles starting cornerback Leodis McKelvin is active after sitting out last Sunday and being ruled questionable to play this week. The veteran has been dealing with a hamstring issue. Nickel cornerback Ron Brooks and linebacker Mychal Kendricks are also active.

The following players are inactive for Minnesota: Laquon Treadwell, Jarius Wright, Kentrell Brothers, Nick Easton, Willie Beavers, Sharrif Floyd, and MyCole Pruitt. Vikings wide receiver Stefon Diggs is active.
