Bennie Logan is back.
Logan was questionable heading into the weekend, but will play and start Sunday against the Falcons.
Logan was playing at a very high level before he hurt his groin in the Washington game. He has missed the Eagles' last three games and Beau Allen has filled in. During his three-game absence, his fellow defensive tackle Fletcher Cox didn't have a sack.
Among the other players listed as questionable, Brent Celek (ribs), Leodis McKelvin (hamstring) and Trey Burton (hamstring) are all active. Taylor Hart (ankle) is inactive.
Guard Allen Barbre (hamstring) and safety Terrence Brooks (hamstring) are both inactive and were ruled out heading into the game. Linebacker Kamu Grugier-Hill (hamstring) is inactive after being listed as doubtful.
Veteran Stefen Wisniewski will start in Barbre’s place.
Also inactive are OL Dillon Gordon, OL Josh Andrews, and DE Steven Means.
Celek suffered a fractured rib during the Giants' game, but claimed all week he would play. The 10-year vet has missed just one game during his long NFL career — in 2012 with a concussion.
“I mean, it hurts, it’s pain,” Celek said Thursday. “But pain is pain. I can live with it. As long as it doesn’t kill me, make me stronger.”
McKelvin is still dealing with the same hamstring injury he's had since Week 2. He suffered a setback during the week, which led to his questionable status heading into the weekend. A few days after the Giants' game, in which he said the hamstring bothered him, he compared it to a manual car that wouldn't let him get into gear.
Grugier-Hill will miss his third straight game with a hamstring injury. He was listed as doubtful coming into the game. At least he was able to finally practice this week.
Cornerback Aaron Grymes, who was just added to the 53-man roster, is active and will have at least a role on special teams Sunday. He is a former CFL All-Star who stood out during training camp, but was sidelined with a shoulder injury for the beginning of the season.
Falcons inactives: CB Desmond Trufant, S Sharrod Neasman, RB Tevin Coleman, RB Stevan Ridley, G Wes Schweitzer, TE Jacob Tamme, DL Cliff Matthews.
That means the Falcons are without their best corner, backup running back and starting tight end. All three were ruled out earlier in the week.
