Philadelphia Eagles injuries: Evan Mathis sits, Asomugha a full participant

Philadelphia Eagles guard Evan Mathis did not practice on Tuesday with an ankle injury as Nnamdi Asomugha returned to full participation.


On the same day that the Philadelphia Eagles saw quarterback Michael Vick and running back LeSean McCoy return to practice, guard Evan Mathis was unable to participate due to an ankle injury.

Mathis injured his ankle in the Eagles win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and was limited in practice on Monday, but sat out on Tuesday. Tight end Brent Celek (concussion) and defensive tackle Mike Patterson (illness) both did not practice on Tuesday and have been ruled out for Thursday's game against the Cincinnati Bengals.

In addition to Vick and McCoy, wide receiver Jeremy Maclin (groin) and safety Kurt Coleman (chest) were limited in Tuesday's practice. Maclin injured his groin celebrating the Eagles game-winning touchdown, but is expected to play on Thursday.

Cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha was limited in practice on Monday with neck and quadriceps injuries, but was a full participant on Tuesday and will be good to go against the Bengals. Safety Nate Allen (shoulder), fullback Stanley Havili (ankle), linebacker Mychal Kendricks (shoulder), running back Chris Polk (toe), and offensive lineman Dallas Reynolds (ankle) were all full participants on Tuesday.
