The Philadelphia Eagles’ 23-17 overtime victory Monday against the New York Giants came with a heavy price.

Right tackle Lane Johnson is week-to-week with a left high-ankle sprain, while wide receiver Alshon Jeffery’s season is reportedly over with a foot injury. Coach Doug Pederson on Tuesday described Jeffery’s injury as “a little more significant” than Johnson’s, and ESPN later reported that Jeffery is done for the rest of the season.

Both players were carted off the field in the first half of Monday’s win, which moved Philadelphia (6-7) into a tie with the Dallas Cowboys atop the NFC East with three games remaining.

NFL Network’s Mike Garafolo reported that Jeffery felt something pop while trying to run.

Johnson, 29, has made the last two Pro Bowls and was an All-Pro first-team selection in 2017. He has started 92 games (12 this season) since the Eagles made him the No. 4 overall pick in the 2013 NFL Draft.

Jeffery, also 29, has 43 receptions for 490 yards and four touchdowns in 10 games this season. He has 469 catches for 6,671 yards and 45 scores in 102 games with the Chicago Bears (2012-16) and Eagles.
