A league source reports that D’Andre Swift, the running back for the Philadelphia Eagles, would likely miss the regular-season finale against the New York Giants because of an injury.

Running back D’Andre Swift of the Philadelphia Eagles will, of course, be absent from the team’s season-ending game against the New York Giants. The 24-year-old’s condition was listed in the team’s final injury report, raising questions over whether or not he was healthy enough to play in the upcoming game.

With Swift out of the picture, the Eagles will surely need to modify their offensive approach before the game that ends the season. Swift has been a vital player during the regular season, amassing a career-high 1,049 running yards and five touchdowns. He was recently chosen for his first Pro Bowl.

The Philadelphia native and former great player for St. Joseph’s Prep went into further detail on how important it was to him to represent his home. Because of the unexpected illness, it is now uncertain if he will play on Sunday. The Eagles will probably use three tailbacks, Boston Scott, Rashaad Penny, and Kenneth Gainwell, to fill the vacuum left by Swift.

After this season, which is the last year of his rookie deal and the end of an incredible campaign, Swift will become a free agent. The Eagles seem to be taking a cautious approach, maybe because of the possible consequences of subjecting their leading quarterback to the challenging turf at MetLife Stadium.

In addition to Swift, the Eagles will also be without wide receiver DeVonta Smith and cornerback Darius Slay against the Giants because of mild ankle sprains. With the absences, the Eagles will have to navigate a game that might not mean much in the grand scheme of things this season.

Fans and analysts are speculating about the possible effects of D’Andre Swift’s injury on the offensive dynamics of the Eagles as they prepare for their Week 18 game against the Giants. The Eagles will modify as needed in anticipation of Swift’s possible absence at kickoff, which is set for 4:25 p.m.
