Vick, Asomugha and McCoy all practice for Eagles

The Eagles came out of Sunday night with a few injury concerns, but they all seem to be well under control.

Quarterback Michael Vick, running back LeSean McCoy and cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha all practiced on Wednesday. Vick suffered a knee contusion late in Sunday night’s 19-17 win and said that he hoped to be ready to play this Sunday against the Steelers. Coach Andy Reid didn’t express much concern about his status nor was there much worry about the other two players.

McCoy was mentioned in Reid’s Monday press conference as having tweaked his knee against the Giants although it was hard to notice it while he was having a strong second half. Asomugha missed some of the game after getting poked in the eye and was incorrectly reported to be headed to the hospital before returning for the end of the game. Absent any negative reports in the next two days, you can expect to see all of them in Pittsburgh.

The other big news of the day at Eagles practice was the return of left tackle King Dunlap. Dunlap’s been out with a hamstring injury, leaving the position to Demetress Bell. Reid suggested that Dunlap might not immediately return to the starting lineup.

“I’ll cross that bridge when we get there,” Reid said, via Jeff McLane of the Philadelphia Inquirer. “But I’m glad to have King back. I just want to see how he’s doing.”

Reid said he thought Bell played well against the Giants, which could earn him another shot to nail down the job the Eagles wanted him to have when they signed him this offseason.

    Not nearly as crazy as naming your kid “Richard” when your last name is Butkus….but it kinda worked out well for him….and chicago

    Blah blah blah… We hear that every week yet the Eagles keep on winning. I do think the Steelers will win this game as it is almost a must win for them and they are coming off a bye week, but I think it will be a close one.

    Have you seen how big this guy is? he’s an inch or 2 short of 7ft. He’s huge!

    King Dunlap is actually King Dunlap, V. Yes. There are four other members of his family who have been named “King.”

    He is 6’9″, for the record.

    I am begging for someone from the Eagles Coaching Staff and/or Management–with a Football I.Q. above Pop Warner–to watch some isolation-DVD on N.A…. PLEASE?!? I don’t care how much you are paying him, he has become a LIABILITY: He can no longer cover, run, avoid pass-interference, & when he is forced to make a tackle, well, I just refer you to one of his attempts in the 4th-Quarter of the Giants game…Sad & Pitiful.

    Pittsburgh is a below .500 team, eagles win this and the sky is falling for all of Pittsburgh

    Nnamdi and Vick need all the practice they can get.

  10. returnofmeezle says: Oct 3, 2012 5:13 PM

    wayne1693 you are 100% correct. he is a liability.

    the only thing I wonder is there miscommunication between him and the safeties on assignments. alot of times he looks like he is giving up a certain position because he believes he has inside or outside safety help.

    having that said, it wouldn’t surprise me if he is cut next year

    Eagles 17 Steelers 38 Final. Ohh yes the afc north will be ours by seasons end!!!

    Nnamdi get poked in the eye. Goes out n returns to and draws a key offensive pass interference call. Nothing is said nor does Nnamdi cry about it. Aaron Rodgers get poked in te eye. Goes out n returns u his team also wins the game. All of a sudden Rodgers is a hero, all while crying about the officials again. Rodgers is a diva and becoming unlikeable fo his crybaby attitude.

    Ravens fans are merely looking for a distraction from when they have to face the music Nov 18 against Pittsburgh. The Steelers ain’t the Cleveland Clowns, who the Ravens should have lost to. And Ravens know it.

    And as for most of their franchise history, including when THEY were the Cleveland Clowns, the Ravens will be looking up at the Steelers in the AFC North standings by the end of the season. Their 2 Super Bowl wins they had last season with their in-season coach gatorade baths are over this year.

    You don’t know what you are talking about. Yes Namdi has not performed to the elite level everyone thought he would, but he is still a solid CB. I don’t know what you were watching last game but the offensive pass interference was because Namdi had the guy covered and may have even intercepted that pass. The pass interference called on Namdi at the end of the game was a bad call and even the announcers said so. Also when Namdi has been beat up front you will notice that Curt Coleman the saftey is the one who was supposed to be there to break up the play. The problem is the Safety Coleman, not Namdi. If you think it is Namdi then I have to question your knowledge about football.

    u know everyone says the eagles will get creamed by that defense. i think the ravens d is better this yr and they squeaked out a win against the ravens… this will be a good game

  21. thetokyosandblaster says: Oct 3, 2012 6:52 PM

    Lol. The eagles. Remember their Super Bowl victory?

    Me neither.

  22. flyeaglefly says: Oct 3, 2012 7:07 PM

    lol…The Steelers. Remember the last time their defense got blown UP….oops, forgot, it was 10 days ago…

    and the hapless Ray-DARS threw up a 34 spot on the Steel Curtain and McFadden ran all over them…

    but yeah, based on that, I guess the Eagles will be lucky to get a FG in this game…makes perfect sense, right? Maybe they’ll simply forfeit the game since Pittsburgh is going 13-0, no make that 16-0 from here on out…NOT!

    How original. You probably can’t remember anything because you lack education. Eagles have never won the SB… Yes we know, we are fans of the team so we are pretty in tune with that fact… wow…. the comments you read sometimes are a bit sad, dopey, and full of hate lol.

    Vick is overrated and the Ravenator is a tool. Harrison is gonna knock Vick out!

  25. nitro276 says: Oct 3, 2012 8:57 PM

    Nmadi to slot corner or free safety. Hughes to right corner. One way or the other, Coleman to the bench.

    Does anyone have any clue what does or doesn’t constitute having your comments deleted? It seems that about 50% of what I try to post never makes it, but I have no idea why. I don’t curse and always stick to football related comments. I don’t really care what the ‘rules’ for posting are, I’d just like to know them so I can abide by them.

    Not only are you delusional and bitter, but you don’t even understand how the standings work. Even if the Eagles lose to the Steelers the standings will look like this:
    Eagles 3-2
    Giants 3-2
    Head to head still puts us in first genius. Nice try though, whatever makes you feel better.
