The Eagles are once again without the league's leader in interceptions as Asante Samuel is inactive for tonight's game despite taking part in practice this week, albeit on a limited basis.
Joselio Hanson will start as the left cornerback, but move inside for Trevard Lindley when the Texans go into a three-receiver set.
Wide receiver Riley Cooper (knee) and defensive Juqua Parker (hip) are also out due to injury. Chad Hall and Daniel Te'o-Nesheim are active in their place.
Also inactive for the Eagles are cornerback Brandon Hughes, offensive tackle Austin Howard, guard Reggie Wells, tight end Garrett Mills and quarterback Mike Kafka (3rd QB).
