Nnamdi Asomugha injury: Eagles CB leaves game with poked eye

Star cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha left the Philadelphia Eagles' Sunday night matchup in the second quarter with an apparent eye injury.

Asomugha came out of the game after it appeared New York Giants' receiver Ramses Barden poked him in the eye. Trainers immediately began to inspect his right eye, giving him drops and shining a light into it, raising some questions about whether or not the four-time All-Pro might have suffered a concussion. Asomugha was taken to the locker room, where his eye is currently still being evaluated.

Asomugha had been playing a great game, jamming Giants' receivers at the line and playing a key part in an Eagles' defensive outing that held New York scoreless until shortly before halftime. He was replaced by Brandon Hughes, a fourth-year corner who made an immediate impact by breaking up a pass on his first series.

It's unclear whether or not Asomugha will be able to return for Philadelphia.
