Elliot suffered a neck injury halfway through the first half of the match against Canada and will be replaced by Tasman hooker Quentin MacDonald.
Weepu was ruled out just before kick-off after failing to recover from a knee injury sustained in training on Saturday. Wellington halfback Chris Smylie has been called in as his replacement.
Both players will arrive in Philadelphia on Tuesday ahead of the Maori All Blacks' next match against the USA on Sunday November 9.
