LAKE FOREST, Ill. – The Eagles announced Saturday that cornerback Asante Samuel has been ruled out of Sunday’s game at Soldier Field due to a knee injury and will not make the trip to Chicago.
Samuel, who leads the NFL with seven interceptions, suffered the injury last Sunday night in Philadelphia’s 27-17 win over the Giants. Samuel missed practice all week and had been listed as questionable on the injury report.
Nickel back Joselio Hanson, a sixth-year pro, is expected to start in place of Samuel. Hanson has played in 10 games with three starts this season, recording 23 tackles and one interception.
