Asomugha returns to practice for Eagles

Eagles cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha gave the team a scare on Tuesday.  He returned to practice on Thursday after suffering a neck and lip injury during a midair collision with Nate Allen.

Coach Andy Reid told the media before practice that Asomugha was ready to return, two days after the incident, which was determined not to include a concussion.

The Eagles signed Asomugha as a free agent in 2011.  Earlier this year, they traded cornerback Asante Samuel to Atlanta, which puts extra emphasis on the importance of keeping starters Asomugha and Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie healthy.

The news isn’t all good for the Eagles, who broke camp in Lehigh and return to the team’s facility.  Reid said linebacker Casey Matthews has a high ankle sprain.

    Namandi can’t prepare for the roast Pierre Garcon will give him as the Redskins sweep the Eagles in 2012 and that’s the bottom line because Stone Cold said so!

    At least he didn’t have a concussion. (wink,wink)

    Pierre Garcon, burning Nnamdi? I wouldn’t count on that one.

    Oh, Pierre might get past Nnamdi once or twice but ole hands of stone Garcon will just drop the pass anyway!

    I think Nnamdi will have an excellent year this time around. This is his second year in Philly, second year with this defensive cordinator, the only year here with a training camp, and he’s surrounded with talent. welcome back Nnamdi.

    This guy was a Al Davis Product. People who don’t know football used to trash Al Davis but just take a look of what happened when Asomough left the Raiders, now he is among the worst CBs in the NFL.
    He once was the best in the NFL under the eye of Davis.

    Do ya think Al Davis was wearing that track oufit/costume
    and teaching hand checks and hip movements?

    Yo KDISH87 Mathews was a rookie playing a new LB position, in a new defense. A defense that had a first time DC, and no training camp. On top of that they changed the way the d-line attacks and the whole formation of the d-line. Not saying Mathews will be a stud but you can’t judge him entirely by last season. At least I think it would be foolish to do so.

    The Deadskins have nothing for the Eagles and Garcon is a joke. Go Eagles
