Doug Pederson met with the media on Friday ahead of the team’s final practice before a week 7 clash with the Vikings. Pederson announced that four players are questionable for the matchup..and all four are on the Defensive side of the football.
Bennie Logan is questionable to play against the Vikings. Ron Brooks, Mychal Kendricks, and Leodis McKelvin too. #Eagles

If the Eagles are without Logan on Sunday, it will be Beau Allen starting in his place after a solid outing against Washington. The Eagles DT hasn’t practiced all week due to injury so it does seem unlikely that he will play, although Pederson stated it will be a game day decision.
Malcolm Jenkins would cover slot duty if Ron Brooks is unable to play, with Jaylen Watkins taking the reps at Safety.
If Leodis McKelvin misses another game, it could prove to be problematic. Jalen Mills would be the starting corner, but if Carroll were to go down as he did against Washington..the Eagles would be down to just two cornerbacks on the roster, although the versatility of Jaylen Watkins would become invaluable.
The Eagles will need as much reenforcement as they can get on Sunday..and being without someone as dominant as Logan could make a huge difference.
