Asante update; Barkley on Vick

Asante Samuel is looking like a game-time decision for tonight’s game against the Houston Texans.

Samuel, who did not play against Chicago, is listed as questionable by the Eagles with a knee injury.

“I am trying to get all the treatment I can!” Samuel posted on his Twitter page shortly after 10 a.m. today.

Sixers great Charles Barkley is interviewed on the NFL Network’s pregame show before tonight’s game.

Among the topics Barkley was asked about is the resurgence of Michael Vick.

“It’s really cool that he is getting a second chance,” Barkley said. “We all make mistakes and he’s paid his dues … Once you have been to jail and paid your dues, you start back out at zero. You start out with a fresh playbook. If he holds up the Vince Lombardi trophy, I think it would be one of the most incredible things I have ever seen in my life to be honest with you.”
