Vick, Asomugha questionable for Sunday

The Philadelphia Eagles head into Sunday's game against the New England Patriots with many key players injured, including star quarterback Michael Vick.

Vick has been doing some throwing this week as he recovers from suffering broken ribs on the second play of the team's Week 10 loss to the Arizona Cardinals.

Vick remained in the game, but the injury clearly affected his ability to accurately throw the ball, as he completed only 16-of-34 passes for 128 yards and two interceptions.

Backup Vince Young filled in for Vick against the Giants last week and led the Eagles on the game-winning, 18-play drive late in the fourth quarter.

Vick is listed as questionable for Sunday's game.

Cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha was a limited participant on Thursday after being carted off the field at the Eagles' practice facility with an apparent knee injury.

But the news was good on Friday, as head coach Andy Reid said Asomugha has a hyperextended knee. There is no structural damage and he is listed as questionable.

Fellow cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie, who missed last week's game with a high ankle sprain, is also questionable.

Wide receiver Jeremy Maclin will likely miss his second straight game with a strained hamstring and sore shoulder. The former Missouri standout is listed as doubtful.

However, wide receiver DeSean Jackson is listed as probable with a foot contusion.

Tackle King Dunlap has been ruled out due to a concussion.
