Bennie Logan might be out for the rest of the Eagles' season

Eagles starting nose tackle Bennie Logan might not play again this season. According to a report from Derrick Gunn, the Eagles have considered shutting Logan down.

Chip Kelly denied Gunn's report during his press conference on Wednesday. Kelly said Logan is "day-to-day." According to Eagles defensive end Cedric Thornton, however, Logan already told his teammates he'll be missing some time.

Multiple outlets are also reporting Logan won't play this week. Logan was seen limping in the Eagles' locker room after the team's loss to Arizona. The nose tackle is dealing with a calf injury.

If the Eagles lose to Washington on Saturday night, they'll only play one more game this season. A win over Washington could give the Eagles a shot to clinch the division in Week 17. Perhaps Logan would be back in time for a playoff game.

The Eagles' run defense has really struggled while Logan has tried to play through injury. He hasn't been able to be the impact player he was earlier this season.

With Logan out, backup nose tackle Beau Allen could be in line for more playing time. Kelly said Thornton and Fletcher Cox could also see some time in the middle of the defensive line. If that's the case, expect to see Taylor Hart and Brandon Bair get more playing time at defensive end.
