LeSean McCoy, Nnamdi Asomugha active for Eagles; Sherman, Hawthorne go for Seattle
SEATTLE (AP) ' NFL rushing leader LeSean McCoy is active for the Philadelphia Eagles despite a toe injury that slowed him in practice this week.
McCoy went through pregame warmups and was deemed ready to go Thursday night against Seattle. Along with McCoy, cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha also was active despite a nagging left knee injury. Both McCoy and Asomugha were listed as questionable. The Eagles had already ruled out quarterback Michael Vick, wide receiver Jeremy Maclin and cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie.
Seattle middle linebacker David Hawthorne and cornerback Richard Sherman were both active after each was listed as questionable. Hawthorne injured his knee last Sunday against Washington, while Sherman sustained a calf injury in the 23-17 loss.
