Eagles receiver Jeremy Maclin has missed the last three games due to multiple injuries. As of Friday, it appeared that he’d play in Miami, since he was listed as probable on the final injury report.
On Saturday, the team announced that Maclin has been downgraded to questionable. The Eagles said that Maclin will make the trip with the team to South Florida.
Technically, the “probable” designation means the player is virtually certain to be available for normal duty. Questionable means that it’s a coin flip proposition.
With no middle ground between “virtually certain” and 50-50, a team that has any doubts about a guy’s ability to play should use the “questionable” tag. That’s apparently what the Eagles chose to do.
