HONOLULU, Hawaii Nnamdi Asomugha shed some light on his decision Thursday to withdraw from the Pro Bowl game. Kinda.Because while the official story was that the two-time All-Procornerback re-injured the right ankle he severely sprained on Halloweenin Wednesdays opening practice, Asomugha said that was not the case.I never tweaked it, Asomugha said following todays final practiceand Ohana Day celebration at Aloha Stadium. I mean, Im fine. Justfigured wed bring (Champ Bailey) in. Yeah.So it was just a matter of being more safe than sorry, consideringAsomughas contract has voided and he is headed towards free agencywhenif a new Collective Bargaining Agreement is agreed upon?Um, yeah, Asomugha said. Im good though, Im fine. Yeah.Asomugha participated fully in the AFCs first two days or practice before surprisingly pulling out.
