Found November 27, 2011 on Buzz On Broad:

Eagles cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha will play today versus the New England Patriots, according to multiple reports.

Asomugha was seen out on the field warming up earlier, at which point he went back into the locker room.

It appears that his left knee felt fine, since he is now expected to dress and play today. How much he can play and if the knee tightens up on him during the game, however, remains to be seen.

Having Asomugha back will be a huge life to the Birds defense, who would have been thin at cornerback without him.
