Asomugha was high in the air as he broke up a pass when his hip area made contact around Clark's shoulder pads. Asomugha was flipped upside down and landed between on his shoulder blades. He eventually walked off under his own power, but he did not look good.

Fox reported that Eagles doctors were evaluating Asomugha for a neck injury. X-rays on the neck were negative. Asomugha also suffered a bruised thigh on the play.
