Doug Pederson spoke with reporters Friday morning, before the team’s final practice of the week ahead of Sunday’s matchup with the Vikings.
Pederson said Bennie Logan wouldn’t practice Friday, the third straight day without practice for Logan, but didn’t rule Logan out as possibly playing against Minnesota.
According to Pederson, Logan (groin), Mychal Kendricks (ribs), Leodis McKelvin (hamstring), and Ron Brooks (calf) are all listed as questionable for Sunday’s game.
Pederson was asked why he decided to list Logan as questionable instead of out.
“It just comes down to game-time, the chance to work him out on game day and see where he’s at,” Pederson said.
Elsewhere, if Ron Brooks can’t play on Sunday because of his calf injury, Pederson said that Malcolm Jenkins would assume the slot cornerback role, Jaylen Watkins would play safety in that situation, and Jalen Mills would play the kind of corner role that he did last week without Leodis McKelvin.
My takes: I doubt we’ll see Logan play. No practice during the week almost always spells no game on Sunday. As far as Brooks and Kendricks go, those seem like toss-ups. I think Leodis McKelvin plays.
A couple more takes from writers:
Saw Logan yesterday. All he would say is his groin felt "much better," but because he's not practicing, I don't expect him to go Sunday.— Aaron Kasinitz (@AaronKazreports) October 21, 2016
Sounds like Ron Brooks (calf) should be able to play Sunday.— Les Bowen (@LesBowen) October 21, 2016
