Celek, Logan Listed As Questionable

On Friday morning, head coach Doug Pederson gave updates on the team's injured players and their statuses for Sunday's game. Defensive tackle Bennie Logan remains on track to return to action after missing the past three games with a groin injury, but Pederson said he will be listed as questionable. Tight end Brent Celek (rib) and linebacker Kamu Grugier-Hill (hamstring) returned to action on a limited basis on Thursday and Friday after sitting out Wednesday's practice. Celek will be questionable for this weekend, while Grugier-Hill will be listed as doubtful.

The only players who did not practice for the Eagles throughout the entirety of the week were guard Allen Barbre (hamstring) and safety Terrence Brooks (hamstring). Pederson said both players have been ruled out.

Cornerback Leodis McKelvin (hamstring) was a limited participant on Thursday and Friday, after fully practicing on Wednesday. He will also be listed as questionable for the game.

Pederson mentioned that guard Brandon Brooks was sent home on Friday morning due to an illness, but the head coach said he expects Brooks "will be fine for the game." A second late addition to the injury report on Friday was tight end Trey Burton (hamstring). He was a full participant in practice, but is questionable for Sunday.

For the Falcons, they will be without their top cornerback as Desmond Trufant was officially ruled out by head coach Dan Quinn on Friday afternoon. He suffered the injury last Thursday in the win over Tampa Bay. Second-year cornerback Jalen Collins will start on the outside in Trufant's place. Quinn said that the Falcons "have a lot of confidence in" Collins.

The head coach also ruled out running back Tevin Coleman, who has not practiced due to a hamstring injury he sustained in Week 7, and tight end Jacob Tamme (shoulder) for this weekend's game.

Defensive end Dwight Freeney was a limited participant in Thursday's practice with a quad injury.
