The imposing defender has been ordered to rest after picking up a knee injury in training, but feels he could still make the friendly with Germany in Stuttgart.
Samuel said: "I am okay, I have a little pain, but it is not a serious injury.
"The doctors have said that I should be fully recovered in 10 days.
"I have been told the pain will persist for a few days, but if there are no complications I will be in good condition for the game (with Germany)."
Samuel was sorely missed on Sunday as Roma were held 2-2 by basement side Venezia, and the capital club will hope he can make a swift recovery in time for the final push in Serie A.
