According to the Eagles Insider, Asomugha was injured after he flipped over Bucs tight end Dallas Clark during the first half of Sunday's game:

Asomugha left the game with two solo tackles and one pass defended. 

The 31-year-old veteran out of Cal has played in every game this season for the Eagles, but has struggled along with the entire team, recording just 40 combined tackles and one interception through Philadelphia's first 12 games.

Asomugha is in his second full season with the Eagles. Prior to signing with Philadelphia in 2011, he had played eight seasons with the Oakland Raiders, where he earned three Pro Bowl selections from 2008 to 2010.

His backup is fourth-year cornerback Brandon Hughes, who has just nine combined tackles in 12 games this season.
