Eagles CB Leodis McKelvin active vs. Falcons; DT Bennie Logan returns to lineup

Eagles cornerback Leodis McKelvin is active for Sunday's game against the Atlanta Falcons even though he was questionable with a hamstring injury, and defensive tackle Bennie Logan is in the lineup for the first time since getting injured against Washington.

The inactive players are safety Terrence Brooks, defensive end Steven Means, linebacker Kamu Grugier-Hill, defensive tackle Taylor Hart, and offensive linemen Allen Barbre, Josh Andrews and Dillon Gordon.

Stefen Wisniewski is starting at left guard in place of Barbre, who is out for the second consecutive week because of a hamstring injury.

Brooks was ruled out Friday with a hamstring injury, too. Grugier-Hill was doubtful with a hamstring injury. Hart was questionable with an ankle injury. Means, Andrews and Gordon are healthy scratches.

Tight ends Brent Celek (rib) and Trey Burton (hamstring) are active even though they were listed as questionable. Celek is playing through a broken rib.

McKelvin's status was in question and he said the hamstring injury will affect him all season, but the Eagles are still playing him. They promoted cornerback Aaron Grymes from the practice squad on Friday, and Grymes will make his NFL debut.
