PHILADELPHIA, Jan. 7 (UPI) -- Running back Brian Westbrook and three other Philadelphia starters missed practice Wednesday for the Eagles' upcoming playoff game with the New York Giants.

Cornerback Asante Samuel, fullback Dan Klecko and offensive tackle John Runyan also were sidelined.

The Eagles visit the Giants Sunday in an NFC divisional playoff.

Westbrook has been bothered by various injuries, including a knee injury.

"It has been tough every week to get ready to play, just dealing with the different injuries that I have had," Westbrook said. "I always seem to find a way (to play). The trainers in the training room have done a great job with me of just getting prepared."

Samuel has a hip injury, Klecko a shoulder injury and Runyan has knee problems.
