Samuel, Justice Questionable

Head coach Andy Reid said that cornerback Asante Samuel (knee sprain) and offensive tackle Winston Justice (knee hyperxtension) are listed as questionable ahead of Sunday night's showdown with the Dallas Cowboys. Reid added that Samuel "has done a little bit more" than Justice, and is probably a little bit more likely to play.

"They tried to do a little today but weren't able to do much," Reid said after neither player participated in Friday's practice. "We're just going to take it day by day and see how they do overnight here."

Samuel has missed two games since injuring the knee in the win over the New York Giants. He was listed as questionable heading into last Thursday's win over the Houston Texans.

"It didn't feel very good on Wednesday so we backed off of (Samuel) and are giving him treatment," Reid said. "We'll see how things go.

"He's feeling better than he did Wednesday. If the other guys play, the other guys play and we have full confidence in them."

If Samuel is unable to play, Joselio Hanson will start at left cornerback with Trevard Lindley playing the outside in nickel situations. If Justice can't play, King Dunlap will start at right tackle.
