EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — The Philadelphia Eagles are playing without starters DeVonta Smith, Darius Slay, D’Andre Swift and Fletcher Cox with their playoff seed still at stake in Sunday’s game against the New York Giants.

Swift had 1,049 yards rushing in his first season with the Eagles and was listed out with an illness. Smith had 81 catches for 1,066 yards but is sidelined with an ankle injury. Slay, a starting cornerback, hasn’t played since he had arthroscopic knee surgery in December.

A six-time Pro Bowl defensive tackle, Cox was not listed on any injury report this week and was resting up for the playoffs.

The Eagles can win the NFC East and earn the No. 2 seed in the NFC with a win and a Dallas loss at Washington. They could also earn the No. 5 seed and open the playoffs on the road against the NFC South champion.
