Asante Samuel misses practice

It looked like Eagles Pro Bowl cornerback Asante Samuel (knee) would be ready to go Sunday against the Dallas Cowboys, but he's apparently had a setback. Samuel practiced Wednesday on a limited basis, but he didn't take the field Thursday. If he's unable to play, Dimitri Patterson and Joselio Hanson will once again be the starters.

Cowboys offensive coordinator Jason Garrett has immense respect for Samuel, so I'm sure the game plan will look a little different if he's not on the field. We'll keep you posted on Samuel's progress. In Giants news, Tom Coughlin told reporters that Ahmad Bradshaw (wrist) should be good to go Sunday against the Vikings.
