Cornerback Asante Samuel said that he practiced on Tuesday despite the hamstring strain that drove him from Sunday's game against the New York Jets.
"Hammy's good, hammy's good," Samuel said.
The Eagles' Tuesday practice was a light one with one less day of rest before Saturday's game at Dallas. The team's slim playoff chances remain alive but could be squelched by the time they kick off at 4:15. If the New York Giants beat the Jets in a 1 p.m. game the Eagles will be eliminated from the postseason.
Eagles coach Andy Reid said on Monday that Samuel's injury didn't appear to be a significant one. Samuel did not offer a prediction on whether he would be able to play Saturday. If he can't go Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie will start in his place.
