BETHLEHEM, Pa. -- Nnamdi Asomugha, who suffered a violent collision with Nate Allen during Monday's practice, has no concussion symptoms, according to an Eagles spokesman.

FROM EARLIER:

Nnamdi Asomugha is being evaluated for a concussion after he collided with Nate Allen on Monday.

The cornerback suffered a lip laceration and had a sore neck, the Eagles said.

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.

If Asomugha suffered a concussion it would be his second in a little over eight months. He left in the second quarter of the Seattle game on Dec. 1 of last year. He did not miss a game, however, partly because the Eagles did not play again until Dec. 11.

Joselio Hanson filled in for Asomugha at right cornerback after he left.
