Cornerback Asante Samuel is listed as questionable with a knee strain for Thursday's game against Texans, according to the official injury report released by the Eagles.

Wide receiver Riley Cooper (knee) is also questionable and defensive end Juqua Parker (hip) is out.

If Samuel can't go, Joselio Hanson will start at cornerback again in his place and will make way for rookie Trevard Lindley when he moves inside to play the nickel. Samuel, who missed the Chicago game on Sunday, was limited all week at practice.

If Cooper is not active, Chad Hall will dress in his place. Rookie Brandon Graham started last week as Parker sat out with a hip flexor strain.

The following Eagles are listed a probable: cornerback Jorrick Calvin (back), guard Nick Cole (knee), running back LeSean McCoy (shoulder) and Lindley (knee).

The Eagles held a walk-through Wednesday morning and will host Houston on Thursday night at 8:20 p.m.
