PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Eagles Pro Bowl cornerback Asante Samuel won't play against the Chicago Bears on Sunday because of a knee injury.

The team announced Saturday that Samuel wasn't making the trip to Chicago. He injured his knee while recovering a fumble in a 27-17 win over the New York Giants.

Samuel missed one game earlier this season with a concussion. He leads the NFL with seven interceptions, including four against the Manning brothers.

Nickel back Joselio Hanson will start in his place, and rookie Trevard Lindley would assume Hanson's role as the No. 3.

The NFC-East leading Eagles (7-3) have a quick turnaround after playing the Bears (7-3). They host Houston on Thursday night.
