The Philadelphia Eagles need wins in Week 16 and Week 17 to have any chance of making the 2011 NFL playoffs. They will have to face the Cowboys in Week 16 without one of their dynamic corners.
Asante Samuel is out for the Saturday game between the two teams, thanks to a hamstring injury. That may spell trouble for Nnamdi Asomugha and Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie, who will have to deal with Miles Austin, Dez Bryant, and Laurent Robinson.
Beyond that, the Eagles have all their typical nicks and bruises: Cullen Jenkins, Jeremy Maclin, and Michael Vick are all listed as probable on the Eagles injury report for Week 16.
OUT: CB Asante Samuel (hamstring).
QUESTIONABLE: DT Trevor Laws (knee).
PROBABLE: RB Ronnie Brown (hamstring), T Todd Herremans (ankle), DT Cullen Jenkins (groin), WR Jeremy Maclin (hamstring), DE Darryl Tapp (ribs), QB Michael Vick (ribs).
