Jeremy Maclin caught 6-of-8 targets for 43 yards in Thursday's preseason game against the Steelers.
Maclin moved well after being slowed by knee and hamstring issues in camp, but gave the Eagles the scare of a lifetime when he went down untouched in the first half. His right, surgically-repaired knee appeared to give out, but he walked off the field under his own power before returning to the game a short time later. Maclin's injury history makes him a dicey WR3 proposition in the Eagles' spread-the-wealth passing attack, but his WR2 upside is worth the risk. Aug 21 - 9:35 PM

Updating previous items, Jeremy Maclin is dealing with a hamstring injury at Eagles camp.

He previously encountered setbacks with his surgically repaired knee, and is now nursing a bum hammy. Coach Chip Kelly stated Sunday that Maclin could resume practicing on Monday, so the Eagles don't see it as a long-term thing. Still, Maclin's health has been consistently shaky in August. We're becoming increasingly leery of drafting him at his early sixth-round Average Draft Slot.

Jeremy Maclin (knee) is inactive for Friday night's preseason game.

Maclin has struggled to stay at 100 percent during camp and won't play after starting the preseason opener. Riley Cooper (foot) is also inactive. Ifeanyi Momah and Arrelious Benn will start in two-wide sets, with Brad Smith in the slot.
Aug 15 - 6:35 PM

Jeremy Maclin (knee) is sitting out Thursday's practice and considered "unlikely" to play in the Eagles' second preseason game.

The Philly Inquirer reported Wednesday that Maclin's health has become increasingly concerning. Maclin has insisted his inability to stay on the field is routine for a player coming off of an ACL tear, but he's over a year removed from the injury. Although Maclin offers a ton of theoretical upside in DeSean Jackson's old role, fantasy owners drafting now may want to tread lightly.

Jeremy Maclin has struggled to stay at 100 percent entering the third week of Eagles training camp.

A report surfaced Tuesday that Maclin was "toasting" Darrelle Revis in Patriots-Eagles joint practices, but Revis is playing at about 50 percent effort, on purpose. Per the Philly Inquirer, "Every time (Maclin) has made progress in his return from a torn anterior cruciate ligament, he has had to take a step back," and "he didn't look as explosive as he did pre-injury during the first two weeks of camp." Maclin insists it's just part of the routine ACL recovery. We feel like Maclin is worth the plunge at his late-fifth-round ADP, but he's definitely not without risk.

Jeremy Maclin has been "toasting" Darrelle Revis during 1-on-1 work at this week's joint practices.

To be fair, beat man Jeff McLane admits Revis doesn't appear to be going 100 percent. But it's still notable that Maclin is winning this battle, especially considering he's only 12 months removed from an ACL tear. On Tuesday, Maclin drew three flags on Revis and beat him deep for a touchdown. It was more of the same early in Wednesday's session. Clearly healthy, Maclin has WR2 upside as a key piece of Chip Kelly's plan to replace DeSean Jackson.
Aug 13 - 9:29 AM

Jeremy Maclin started Friday night's preseason opener against the Bears, catching one pass for 15 yards.

It's a good sign after Maclin recently complained of soreness in his surgically repaired knee. He committed a personal-foul facemask penalty on Philly's second possession, and secured his lone target in the passing game.
Aug 8 - 9:03 PM

Eagles WR Jeremy Maclin (ACL surgery) has been limited three of the last four practices with "soreness in his legs."

This would normally not be noteworthy, but with Maclin barely a year removed ACL surgery, any sign of a setback is worrying. Maclin downplayed the missed time, saying the soreness was a normal part of the rehab process. Maclin is expected to play in the Eagles' preseason opener on Friday.
Aug 5 - 4:11 PM

Coach Chip Kelly said Jeremy Maclin (ACL) looks "fantastic" so far.

Maclin is one year removed from his ACL tear and penned in as the No. 1 wideout for Nick Foles. He's cutting, planting and bursting without issue. Maclin will be playing the DeSean Jackson "Z" role, a spot that led to D-Jax posting career outlier numbers in his first year under Chip Kelly.
Jul 28 - 10:06 AM

Jeremy Maclin (ACL surgery) says that in some ways, he now feels faster.

Maclin participated fully in the entire offseason program, making a strong return from his July 2013 tear. "In some ways I feel more fresh, more physically strong," he said. "I just think you put so much hard work into your rehab process that that's kind of what happens. You get that leg back. You build that leg back stronger." With DeSean Jackson now a Redskin, Maclin is Nick Foles' "Z" receiver and No. 1 wideout. He's playing on a one-year "prove it" deal.
Jul 14 - 10:46 AM

Jeremy Maclin (knee) has practiced in full for the Eagles' entire offseason program.

"I’ve been getting better each and every day, and I’m really happy with my progress," Maclin said. "I feel good, I don’t feel I lost a step, and I’m getting in and out of breaks well." Now nearly 11 months removed from tearing his left ACL, Maclin is a WR3 with WR2 upside in Chip Kelly's offense.
Jun 17 - 8:32 PM

Jeremy Maclin tweaked his left knee at Monday's practice, but is expected to be fine.

Maclin is recovering from a torn right ACL. Maclin went down in a heap, but "bounced up from the turf and walked back to the huddle" after only a few moments. Monday's incident isn't a concern for Maclin's 2014 status, but a reminder of his relative fragility.
Jun 2 - 3:40 PM

Jeremy Maclin is lining up at DeSean Jackson's old position at right-side wide receiver during Eagles OTAs.

Maclin is the new "Z", with Riley Cooper at "X." Rookie Jordan Matthews was excused to attend an NFLPA event, but has been lining up at slot receiver in a Marques Colston-type role. Maclin probably won't do as much slot work as Jackson did -- D-Jax lined up there on 30 percent of his snaps -- but will do the heavy lifting outside. Maclin is a WR3 fantasy pick with WR2 upside.
May 30 - 3:15 PM

Speaking Thursday, Eagles coach Chip Kelly said Jeremy Maclin (knee) has looked "fantastic" in OTAs.

Maclin is 10 months removed from tearing his ACL, and if he isn't 100 percent already, he will be for training camp. He'll be a WR3 with upside as the Eagles' nominal No. 1 receiver this season.
May 29 - 8:59 PM

Jeremy Maclin expects to see some playing time in the slot this season.

Depending on what the Eagles do in the draft, Maclin is a candidate to start at Z receiver and move to the slot in three-wide sets. "I think I’ll do a little bit of everything," he said. "I’m a guy they can move around in different positions." Nine months removed ACL surgery, Maclin has been cleared for limited work during OTAs and expects to be 100 percent for training camp. It's worth noting DeSean Jackson played nearly 30 percent of his 2013 snaps in the slot.
