EAGLES A COVID WARD, COWBOYS RESTING STARTERS: DALLAS A 7-FAVE!

By Skip Charles in Vegas

After securing a wild-card spot with their fourth straight win Sunday, the Eagles are locked into the sixth or seventh seed in the NFC.

They’ll host the NFC East champion Dallas Cowboys (11-5) on Saturday night with the top priority being avoiding injuries heading into wild-card weekend.

“We haven’t decided anything there yet,” coach Nick Sirianni said Monday about his plans for the game. “We’re preparing like we would normally prepare. … So, we’re trying to get our plan ready, we’re trying to rip through that. I know there is a thing about resting and there is a thing about staying sharp. No doubt we’re taking everything into account, and we’ll discuss that later on today.”

The Eagles placed 12 players on the reserve/COVID-19 list, including Fletcher Cox, Dallas Goedert and Jason Kelce.

It’s possible they could return in time, but there’s no urgency for any of them to play.

Jalen Hurts has played through an ankle injury that forced him to miss a game last month, so Gardner Minshew could see plenty of action against the Cowboys unless Sirianni decides he wants his second-year quarterback to stay sharp.
