Eagles Rule Out CB Samuel

Prior to the team's trip to Dallas on Friday, the Eagles ruled out cornerback Asante Samuel for the Cowboys game due to a hamstring injury. Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie will start in his place at left cornerback.

Samuel was the only player not to take part in Friday's walkthrough. Samuel injured his hamstring in the win over the Jets. Rodgers-Cromartie is an experienced cornerback who made the Pro Bowl in the 2009 season. He started every game last year for Arizona at the left cornerback spot. The 6-2 Rodgers-Cromartie has the size and athleticism to matchup with Dallas's tall and physical receiving corps.

Defensive tackle Trevor Laws is questionable for Saturday's game with a knee injury. He missed last Sunday's game due to the injury.

Every other player is ready for duty against the Cowboys. Less than two weeks after breaking a rib, defensive end Darryl Tapp is probable. Also listed as probable for the Eagles are: running back Ronnie Brown (hamstring), tackle Todd Herremans (ankle), defensive tackle Cullen Jenkins (groin), wide receiver Jeremy Maclin (shoulder, hamstring) and quarterback Michael Vick (ribs).
