PHILADELPHIA — Eagles cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha, one of Philadelphia’s celebrated free agency acquisitions, injured his left knee during practice Thursday and was taken off the field on a cart.

The Eagles had no comment on the extent of the injury and a team spokesman said Asomugha’s status would be updated on Friday.

Asomugha was participating in a non-contact drill on the grass fields adjacent to the team’s NovaCare Complex when he was hurt. The 30-year-old, a three-time Pro Bowl pick and four-time All-Pro selection, leads the Eagles (4-6) with three interceptions two in his last four games.

With Pro Bowl cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie already out with an ankle injury, the Eagles could be down to just one of their celebrated Pro Bowl cornerback trio of Asante Samuel, Rodgers-Cromartie and Asomugha when they face Tom Brady and the New England Patriots (7-3) at Lincoln Financial Field Sunday.

BEARS: Quarterback Josh McCown worked out with Chicago for the first time Thursday, hours after agreeing to a one-year contract as a backup quarterback following last Sunday’s injury to starter Jay Cutler.

McCown, 32, an eight-year veteran, took snaps during the two-hour plus drill.

TITANS: The NFL has fined Tennessee defensive end William Hayes $15,000 for a hit on Atlanta quarterback Matt Ryan, a punishment he plans to appeal.
