Landri, Jordan To Start Vs. Giants

The Eagles will go into their final game of the season without their first two picks from April's draft. Defensive tackle Fletcher Cox and linebacker Mychal Kendricks both sustained concussions in last week's game against the Redskins and are out Sunday. Veteran Derek Landri will start in place of Cox, while Akeem Jordan will take over for Kendricks.

Otherwise, there are few surprises on the inactive report. Running back Chris Polk, who has been nursing a toe injury for much of the season, is out. Tight end Evan Moore was downgraded from doubtful to out Saturday. This means fullback/tight end Emil Igwenagu is likely to see increased snaps at tight end Sunday. And for the second week in a row, right guard Danny Watkins is inactive.

Also out for the Eagles are: offensive lineman Matt Kopa and wide receiver Greg Salas.

Meanwhile, the Giants will be returning some key defenders. Cornerback Prince Amukamara (hamstring), defensive end Justin Tuck (shoulder) and safety Kenny Phillips (knee) are active. However, they will be without starting defensive tackle Chris Canty, who is nursing a knee injury. Rocky Bernard will start in place of Canty.

Also inactive for the Giants are: safety Tyler Sash, wide receiver Ramses Barden, running back Ryan Torain, defensive end Adewale Ojomo and tight end Adrien Robinson.
