Asomugha adds neck/concussion to ailments

The Sports Xchange


--CB Nnamdi Asomugha suffered a neck stinger and possible concussion against the Seahawks. He already was playing with a hyperextended knee. His availability for next week's games against the Dolphins is uncertain.

--S Colt Anderson, the Eagles' best special teams player, tore the ACL in his left knee in Thursday night's game and will miss the rest of the season. He is scheduled to have surgery next week.

--S Nate Allen had another tough game Thursday night, both in coverage and against the run. It has become evident that he still hasn't made a complete recovery from last December's patella tendon rupture.

--QB Michael Vick missed his third straight game Thursday with fractured ribs. But the Eagles think he'll be ready to play in 10 days against the Dolphins.

--QB Vince Young had four more interceptions Thursday. That's nine in just 114 attempts, or one every 12.6 passes.

--CB Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie missed his third straight game with a high ankle sprain Thursday. He had resumed practicing on a limited basis last week, and there is optimism that he'll be able to play in the Eagles' next game against Miami.


B -- Playing with a sprained toe, LeSean McCoy rushed for 84 yards on 17 carries and notched his 12th rushing touchdown. He had four double-digit runs, including 20-yarder in the first quarter.

F -- Vince Young was painfully inaccurate in the first half, completing just 5 of 12 passes. With his four interceptions, he's thrown nine picks in 114 attempts. That's an interception every 12.6 attempts. Riley Cooper had a team-high five catches, but had a pass clang off his hands and into the grasp of Seahawks cornerback Brandon Browner. DeSean Jackson had just four catches for 34 yards.

F -- Bad tackling, which has plagued the Eagles defense all season long, again was a big problem as the Seahawks' Marshawn Lynch broke tackle after tackle on his way to 148 rushing yards and two touchdowns. Lynch is the fifth running back to rush for 100 yards against the Eagles this season.

D -- Tarvaris Jackson, who had completed just 55 percent of his passes in the last five games and was playing with a partially torn pectoral muscle, completed 13-of-16 passes against the Eagles and had a career-high 137.0 passer rating despite the absence of his best receiver, Sidney Rice. That's right. Tarvaris Jackson.

C-plus -- DeSean Jackson called a fair-catch in the first half with no one near him and also let another punt bounce that he should have caught. The Eagles' coverage units did a solid job on Seahawks return man Leon Washington.

D - While Andy Reid insisted there was no lack of effort by his team Thursday night, this looked very much like a team that has quit on its coach. Defensive coordinator Juan Castillo's defense, which had improved against the run in recent games, gave up 148 rushing yards and two touchdowns to Marshawn Lynch.
