Saracens prop Mako Vunipola has been handed his first start as England make five changes for Sunday's Six Nations match against Italy at Twickenham.
Haskell and Tom Youngs replace Courtney Lawes and Dylan Hartley respectively, with the Northampton pair dropping to the bench, where they are joined by Joe Marler and Ben Youngs, who both started in the win against France.
England go into the game top of the table, having won three games in a row.
The victory over France in the last round
ensured they remain on track for a first Grand Slam in a decade, and boss Stuart Lancaster always intended to "freshen up" the side in the penultimate round of the 2013 Six Nations.
"We were very happy with the way we finished the France game," he explained. "The impact the replacements made shows that we have competition for places across the board and we have had to make some tight calls.
"Danny Care has waited patiently for his opportunity. In freshening the team up, sometimes when you have a guy who is desperate to play that can help the team.
"They [Care and scrum-half rival Ben Youngs] are unbelievably close. They are both high-quality players, in great form and in great condition and pushing each other.
"Mako has thoroughly deserved his chance and we are looking forward to seeing how he goes."
Billy Twelvetrees is among the replacements after Lancaster decided against shifting centre Manu Tuilagi to the wing and benching Chris Ashton.
