PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – Andy Reid updated the Eagles significant injury list after practice on Friday as his team gets ready for Sunday’s game with the Patriots.
Yesterday, cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha suffered a knee injury and actually had to be carted off the practice field. Reid says he is questionable to face the Patriots.
“Nnamdi has a hyper-extended knee, actually is making progress. He’s going to continue to try and rehab it and get himself ready for the game and if he can go, he’ll go.”
Quarterback Michael Vick continues to battle those broken ribs that kept him out of the Giants win.
“Michael is questionable. He did throw the last couple of days. Actually felt better each day and so, (we’ll) just see how things go. Vince is taking all the reps.”
Vince Young would make his second consecutive start if Vick is indeed sidelined.
Wide receiver Jeremy Maclin is listed as doubtful with hamstring and shoulder issues. Reid says at this point, the hamstring is the bigger problem.
DeSean Jackson (foot) practiced on Friday. He is listed as probable for the Patriots game.
Cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie (ankle) practiced for the first time this week on Friday. He is officially listed as questionable for Sunday.
The Eagles and the Patriots kickoff is at 4:15 p.m. on Sunday at the Linc.
