Pro Bowl CB Samuel questionable for Eagles' game vs. Texans

The Philadelphia Eagles could be without Pro Bowl cornerback Asante Samuel on Thursday night, when they play host to the Houston Texans.

Samuel, who leads the NFL with seven interceptions, again was a limited participant in practice Wednesday after missing Sunday's game at Chicago with a knee injury. He is listed as questionable, meaning there is a 50 percent chance of him playing.

The Eagles already have ruled out defensive end Juqua Parker (hip). Wide receiver Riley Cooper (knee) also is questionable, though he didn't practice Wednesday.

Running back LeSean McCoy (shoulder), cornerbacks Jorrick Calvin (back) and Tevard Lindley (knee) and guard Nick Cole (knee) were full participants in Eagles practice and are probable.

Three Texans are questionable: wide receivers Kevin Walter (calf) and David Anderson (hamstring) and defensive end Jesse Nading (knee). Nading didn't practice Wednesday, but the other two were limited.

Tight end Owen Daniels (hamstring) and linebacker Xavier Adibi (hamstring) were declared out earlier in the week.

All of the Texans' probables were full participants in practice Wednesday except defensive end Mario Williams (groin) and linebacker Brian Cushing (knee), each of whom was limited.
