Asante Samuel was listed as questionable for Sunday night's game at Dallas, even though the Eagles cornerback hardly practiced all week.

"I'm feeling pretty good," Samuel said. "Everything's getting better. I'm taking it day to day."

Samuel was suited up at the start of Eagles practice on Friday, but mainly took mental repetitions for the first part and then left the team's indoor bubble soon after. He has a knee sprain and was a limited participant at Wednesday's practice, but sat out the next day's session with soreness.

"I wouldn't call it a setback, but some things were uncomfortable," said Samuel, who also said that he could play without a week of practice.

If Samuel can't go, Joselio Hanson will start in his place as he did in the previous two games Samuel missed. Trevard Lindley will also play some left cornerback when Hanson moves inside to play the nickel.

Tackle Winston Justice is also listed as questionable. He didn't take a practice rep all week because of a hyperextended knee. If Justice has to sit Sunday, King Dunlap will start at right tackle.

Eagles coach Andy Reid was noncommital on whether Samuel or Justice would travel to Dallas. The team will gather for a walk-through before they depart for Dallas on Saturday. If neither's condition has improved, Reid may decide to leave one or the other or both home.
