According to Jeff McLane of the Philadelphia Inquirer, both Eagles safety Nate Allen and cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha collided in mid-air during Monday’s practice while attempting to break up a pass intended for DeSean Jackson.
“Nnamdi Asomugha was apparently knocked out after he collided with Nate Allen on Monday in the most violent hit of Eagles training camp.
“Asomugha laid face down on the ground with little to no movement for close to five minutes before he finally rose to one knee. The cornerback then slowly stood, was helped to a cart and driven inside. Asomugha’s shirt was bloodied and he held his head as he drove off.
“Allen was down for a brief period, but he got up much quicker than Asomugha and returned to practice,” wrote McLane.
As soon as we get more infoon the status of both Allen and Asomugha, we’ll update everyone.
