Asante Samuel Ruled Out Against Cowboys

Asante Samuel has missed practice all week with a hamstring injury, so it shouldn't come as a huge surprise that he's been officially ruled out for tomorrow's game against the Cowboys.

That means that Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie will get the start in his place. DRC played well filling in last week so the Eagles are lucky to not have a huge dropoff at the position. Plus, the duo of DRC & Nnamdi Asomugha on the outside and Joselio Hanson in the slot has a really good chance of being our secondary next year. So this will be a good chance to get a preview against a good Dallas receiving corps.

The Eagles need to beat the Cowboys tomorrow night to keep their playoff hopes alive, that is of course if the hopes are alive by game time... The Giants play the Jets at prior to the Eagles game. Should the Giants win, the Eagles are eliminated.
