No word on what the situation is or whether it's a serious injury. It could be a minor tweak or it could be severe -- we just don't know. But anytime a cornerback of Asomugha's caliber goes down, it's cause for concern.
The Eagles host the New England Patriots on Sunday so potentially losing a defensive back, especially your best one, would come at a bad time. It's even worse considering Domonique Rodgers-Cromartie is already out with an ankle injury. Rodgers-Cromartie's status for the rest of the season is unknown.
Asomugha came to Philly prior to the 2011 season with much fanfare. As arguably the best free agent available, Asomugha secured a five-year, $60 million deal from the Eagles that included a reported $25 million in guaranteed money.
The Eagles are 4-6 and may need to run the table in order to compete for a playoff spot. Check out SB Nation's Bleeding Green Nation for more on the situation.
