Bennie Logan Returns From Groin Injury, Taking Recovery Slowly

For the first time in a couple weeks, Bennie Logan practiced on Wednesday.

The Eagles' starting defensive tackle has missed the last two games with a groin injury he suffered against Washington, when a player fell on his leg and it "hyperextended."

Logan was limited on Wednesday.

"I did some," Logan said. "I was limited in some team stuff and whatnot. It felt good being out there, just being able to move around there."

During the 2½ games without Logan, reserve Beau Allen has filled in and Fletcher Cox has — understandably — seen many more double teams.

Cox will be happy to have his teammate Logan back soon.

"I see it. I see it and I just have to fight through it," Cox said about double teams. "And know that teams, they know where I'm at. They know where I'm going to line up at. I just have to embrace the challenge and fight through it and do whatever it takes to help this team win."

While Logan came back to practice in limited fashion on Wednesday, he's being careful to come back slowly from his injury to make sure he doesn't aggravate it.

"You don't want to rush it," Logan said. "It's a groin injury so ... if you (rush back) you can end up tearing it or whatnot and then you'll be out for the season. So I'm just working my way in there and just doing what I (can) tolerate."

While Logan understands the importance of taking his rehab slowly, he's also eager to get back on the field on Sundays.

"I ain't trying to stay out no more," he said. "It sucks sitting out, watching it."
