Asante Samuel won't make the trip to Chicago with the rest of his Eagles teammates and is out for Sunday's Bears game, the team announced Saturday.

The Eagles held their walk-through this morning at the NovaCare Complex and it was decided that Samuel's knee sprain did not heal enough for him to play. Joselio Hanson will start in his place at right cornerback.

Defensive end Juqua Parker (hip) and defensive tackle Antonio Dixon (abdomen) will make the trip, but are listed as questionable.
