PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — A hamstring injury has hampered Bennie Logan so far this training camp, but the Eagles 2013 third-round nose tackle out of LSU says he’s getting better and feels far more comfortable in his role, than he did last year.

There is a chance, according to Logan, that he might be forced to miss a few pre-season games, but he would rather miss a few exhibition games than jeopardize a few regular-season games by trying to return too quickly from the hamstring.

“The hamstring feels a lot better,” said Logan, who played a key role in the Eagles’ defense changing their fortunes the second half of last season when they went 7-1. “I’m coming out here and doing drills and stuff. It’s still a slow pace, but I want to come back right and it’s why we’re coming back slow. I want to work my way into it.”

Logan said he’s weighing around 317 pounds and he feels good at that weight. He weighed 325 at LSU, but at 317, he said, he’s more agile.

“Once I got comfortable in the system I feel a lot more relaxed and comfortable with what I’m doing than I did last year,” Logan said. “I’m ready to get out there and show what I can do.”

Eagles’ defensive coordinator Billy Davis is being cautious with Logan. “He’s doing all he can and some days are better than others,” Davis said about Logan. “There are a lot of guys where they are not going to come out and do something, they come out with the intention of doing everything, but for whatever reason, we make decisions on what we have that this is the right thing to do is push through it or this is the wrong thing and back off. Every day is different.”
