Nnamdi Asomugha Not At Eagles Walk Through Following Monday's Collision

Philadelphia Eagles fans breathed a sigh of a relief Monday, when they learned the collision between cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha and safety Nate Allen didn't lead to a concussion to either player -- more importantly to the All-Pro Asomugha.

But because of the head injury, Asomugha did not participate in the Eagles' walk-through Tuesday at Lehigh University. The news isn't a complete shock considering Asomugha was seen laying motionless being being carted off the field after the collision, which took place during a 7-on-7 drill.

This was Asomugha's second head injury in less than a year, as last season the cornerback suffered a concussion against the Seattle Seahawks in December. Asomugha had a quick recovery, returning to the practice field after missing just four days.

Nnamdi Asomugha Injury: No Concussion Symptoms For Eagles CB

When Philadelphia Eagles cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha collided with a teammate during practice Monday, it was initially thought Asomugha may have suffered a concussion. That didn't turn out to be the case, however, as the Eagles said Asomugha has no concussion symptoms, according to a report from Jeff McLane of the Philadelphia Inquirer.

The injury occurred when the Eagles were going through 7-on-7 drills. Asomugha collided with safety Nate Allen and laid motionless face down on the field for several minutes before being taken off on a cart. Asomugha was evaluated for a concussion following the collision but has only a lip laceration and a sore neck, according to SB Nation's Bleeding Green Nation.

Allen was also shaken up during the incident, but he was able to return to practice Monday.

Nnamdi Asomugha Collides With Teammate, Carted Off At Eagles Training Camp

Philadelphia Eagles cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha collided with teammate and safety Nate Allen on Monday at Eagles practice and Asomugha may have sustained a concussion.

Allen and Asomugha collided going after a pass during 7-on-7 drills. The two players hit helmet-to-helmet on the play in mid-air. Allen got up soon after the collision but Asomugha stayed down on the ground motionless for "several minutes" before being carted off the field. He will be given a concussion test in the locker room. There will likely be no status update on Asomugha until after practice.

Allen is practicing once again. Asomugha has been replaced by Joselio Hanson. Asomugha suffered a concussion last season against the Seattle Seahawks, but returned to practice just four days after the concussion occurred.
