Samuel missed practice Friday and is questionable.
The general rule of thumb for Andy Reid and the rest of the NFL head coaches is that if a player does not practice on Friday, he generally does not play on Sunday.
The Eagles' injury report came out Friday afternoon and, much to everyone's dismay, starting right tackle Winston Justice and Asante Samuel were listed as questionable after not practicing once again.
For Justice, it was his third straight missed practice. It was Samuel's second missed practice this week as he also missed Thursday.
Listing them as "questionable" means that both have a 50-50 chance at playing, but that's probably being generous. Justice and Samuel did some light running, and Samuel was even a limited participant in practice on Wednesday, but neither took any real reps and are Reid would not even commit to either player traveling to Dallas.
Samuel, however, claims he does not need to practice in order to be able to play.
"I really don't [need to practice]," Samuel said. "I really don't need any practice reps. My main thing is being healthy, but the more practice the better."
Samuel answered a handful of questions, but was clearly aggravated at the situation as he danced around most questions in a fashion that would make Andy proud.
Right now, King Dunlap is expected to start at right tackle and Joselio Hanson is expected to start in Samuel's place, although he would likely rotate with Trevard Lindley in nickel packages.
