CHICAGO -- Defensive end Juqua Parker joined cornerback Asante Samuel on the Eagles inactive list for Sunday's game against the Bears.

Parker has a hip flexor strain. Samuel, out with a knee sprain, did not make the trip. Rookie Brandon Graham will start in place of Parker. It's his first start since Week 4. Joselio Hanson is filling in for Samuel.

With Parker sidelined, rookie defensive end Daniel Te'o-Nesheim will dress for the first time since the Tennessee game last month.

Defensive tackle Antonio Dixon, also questionable for the game, is active despite an abdomen strain. He's likely to start.

The Eagles' other inactives are: wide receiver Chad Hall, tackle Austin Howard, cornerback Brandon Hughes, guard Reggie Wells, tight end Garrett Mills and Mike Kafka is the third quarterback.
