No concussion for Nnamdi Asomugha

The news from Eagles camp is that cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha’s collision with safety Nate Allen looked worse than it felt.

Asomugha did wind up with a busted lip and sore neck after running into his secondary mate, but the Eagles say that he has no symptoms of a concussion after being evaluated by the team’s medical staff.

Despite the scary scene on Monday, Allen said that there won’t be much of an attempt to avoid these kinds of collisions in the future.

“I saw him, but I figured when you’re out there, you’re just playing fast and things happen; you collide sometimes,” Allen said, via Zach Berman of the Philadelphia Inquirer. “But you’ve got to go for the ball. You can’t dodge each other.”

Asomugha isn’t with the Eagles at their morning walkthrough Tuesday, according to Reuben Frank of CSNPhilly.com, and his status for the afternoon practice is unknown at this point. Even without a concussion, you’d imagine the Eagles are going to proceed cautiously with Asomugha’s return to the field after dodging such a big bullet.

    Good to hear he’s okay. Not an Eagles fan, but you don’t want to see anyone get hurt.

    The NFL needs to have a word with the Eagles Medical staff if they truly want us to believe there was no concussion. This is the same staff that allowed Michael Vick to go back into a game against the Redskins last year when he was clearly wobbly on the sideline after a hit he took.

    Nnamdi should get copies of all the documents related to this signed off on by the Eagles medical staff so he can sue them in 10 years.

    Problem is with the Eagles they don’t know how to shut their mouth and know their role. Always talkin about we are a dynasty or a dream team meanwhile going eight and eight . I hope he’s doing better so he can spend that huge contract he doesn’t deserve reid needs to cut his candy ass

    Can any of us fans really be sure whether or not he suffered a concussion?

    I realize things have changed some but would anyone be willing to bet money on that he didn’t?

    Unfortunately, I don’t really trust this team with concussions. Hope all really is well Nnamdi.

    I’m not an eagles fan, but I’m happy he’s ok…never want to see a player injured

    As much as I hate the Eagles, only a troll or social reject would hope any NFL player would be injured the way Asomugha could have been hurt. I want every player on every team healthy. Its the only way to prove who’s the best.

    Probably the same guy that checked stewart bradely a few years ago. Based on that picture it looks like he was concussed. birds just don’t want to put out there that this is the second concussion this year. nnamdi be careful with your medical handlers there. they’ll have you eating creamed corn for the rest of your life. Ask someone in your family for a second opinion.

    Eagles medical staff on John F Kennedy
    ” He just has a tension headache, no biggie”

    and the year before when they played GB Stewart Bradley actually fell back to the ground on his way to the sideline after a concussion and was later sent back in. During the same game Kolb also was sent back in after a concussion.

    Thank Goodness! I grew up playing football and have had my ‘bell rung’ a few times. It’s not a nice feeling but not a concussion. Glad to hear Nnamdi is OK.

  14. castigs says: Aug 14, 2012 10:42 AM

    So after the initial report that he was “knocked out” for 5 minutes (on philly.com)…now we are supposed to believe he just bruised his lip? No concussion? come on….

  15. andyreidisarrogantandfat says: Aug 14, 2012 11:56 AM

    Stopped believing anything the eagles say after they came out on saturday and said jim johnson was at home resting comfortably and was fine. 2 days later the guy was dead.

  16. geniusfan says: Aug 14, 2012 12:27 PM

    The fact that some of you were clearly hoping Nnamdi had a concussion is nothing short of pathetic.

    I’m happy he’s okay. And as long as Juan Castillo has him pressing instead of playing zone he’s going to have a great year.

    To those of you doubting the medical staff, do you really think they’re hiding a concussion 25 days before the season? I could understand if there was a game Sunday, you may have doubts. Just doesn’t add up in this instance.

  18. captybrock says: Aug 15, 2012 12:28 PM

    What’s with all the sudden hate on the Eagles? They didn’t get caught for having a bounty did they? And why can’t a player get hurt without having the constant questioning of a concussion? players safety is becoming priority in the NFL.
