Samuel ruled out for Eagles

The Eagles will be without Pro Bowl CB Asante Samuel when they face the Houston Texans on Thursday night, NFL Network’s Kara Henderson reported.

Samuel was listed as questionable after missing last Sunday’s game in Chicago because of a knee injury.

The Eagles struggled defensively last week without Samuel, who leads the NFL with seven interceptions. It’s expected that Joselio Hanson will make his second consecutive start opposite Dimitri Patterson.

Here are the full inactive lists for both teams:

Texans
Matt Leinart (No. 3 QB)
WR Dorin Dickerson
TE Owen Daniels
TE Anthony Hill
G Kasey Studdard

DE Jesse Nading
LB Xavier Adibi

Eagles
