EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. — New York Giants defensive end Damontre Moore and Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant are inactive for Sunday’s NFC East game at MetLife Stadium.

Moore, who leads the Giants with three sacks, was chided by coach Tom Coughlin last week when he body slammed Eagles quarterback Sam Bradford to the ground well after he had released the ball on third down play that extended a Philadelphia driver.

Bryant is six weeks removed from foot surgery and had a goal of returning this week despite limited participation in practice. Bryant broke his right foot Sept. 13 against the Giants. Guard Ronald Leary and quarterback Kellen Moore, third on the depth chart behind Brandon Weeden and new starter Matt Cassell, are also inactive.

The Giants will roll with a four-man rotation at defensive end which will include Robert Ayers Jr, who is back in the starting lineup after missing the last four games with a hamstring strain, George Selvie, Kerry Wynn and rookie Owa Odighizuwa.

Giants strong-side linebacker Devon Kennard is active this week after missing the last two weeks with a hamstring strain.
