The Philadelphia Eagles got some bad news on Sunday ahead of an important Week 18 showdown with their division rival, the New York Giants. Eagles running back D'Andre Swift is not expected to play in the game, per NFL Network. He was listed as questionable due to an illness.

The Eagles were definitely hoping to have Swift for the game. The running back has had a career season, with 229 attempts on the ground for 1,049 yards. He's also rushed for five touchdowns. Swift has specialized in hard-nose short runs, helping lead the Eagles to a 11-5 record. Swift is in his first season in Philadelphia.

Swift has also made himself heard in the Eagles' passing game. He has 39 receptions on the year, which is a bit lower than what he's been producing in previous seasons as a member of the Detroit Lions. Swift has 214 receiving yards on the season to go with a touchdown.

If Swift does miss the game as expected, the Eagles are likely to use a committee of running backs to carry the load. Boston Scott, Kenneth Gainwell and Rashaad Penny could all see action during the game. The Eagles are hoping to end the season on a high-note with a victory against the Giants.

Swift played for the Lions for three seasons before joining Philadelphia in 2023. He was drafted by the Lions in the second round of the 2020 NFL Draft. He played his college football at Georgia.

The Giants are 5-11 heading into Sunday's game. The Eagles and Giants kick off at 4:25 Eastern.
