Jeremy Maclin returns to practice

The immediacy of Twitter can be a wonderful thing for following football.

News moves instantly, allowing people to stay up to date on their favorite teams from anywhere in the world without the lag time those of us born in the pre-internet days remember with increasing fuzziness. It can also be a frustrating thing for such followers, like on days when an injured player makes an appearance at practice just before it closes to the media but after the media has already sent out word that the player still isn’t practicing.

That’s just what happened at Eagles practice on Thursday when wide receiver Jeremy Maclin came out to practice after the rest of the team dressed to participate after he’d already been reported as a non-participant in practice. Jeff McLane of the Philadelphia Inquirer and other beat writers were quick to pass along the change in status for Maclin, who has been dealing with a hip injury since the opening game.

Maclin was able to play after missing both Wednesday and Thursday last week, so this would seem to be a good sign for his chances of being on the field against the Cardinals. Chris Mortensen of ESPN thought the opposite earlier on Thursday, although that was before any knowledge of Maclin’s practice schedule came to light. We won’t know until later just how much Maclin is able to do at practice, although doing anything is an obvious improvement over doing nothing for a second straight day.

    Maclin seems to get banged up a lot. He was hampered by injuries much of the time last year too. The guy is pretty frail so may be needs to beef up a little bit.

    if he makes a cameo to catch 1 TD like last week that’s fine with me.

    I wouldnt call maclin frail…and i am not factoring in last years injuries due the fact a life threatening illness took away his whole offseason and caused him to lose weight

    It was rumored that he stayed away so long because he was tired of Kielbasa-breath Andy Reid following him around bugging him for his recipe for rabbit stew, also known as Hassenpfeffer!!!

    Uh… he was ILL last season. This season he has a hip flexor (non serious injury). What the heck are you babbling about? And if you followed your teams news you would know he did bulk up he put up 5-6 pounds of muscle and is a bit faster… come on man….

    He needs a couple weeks to allow that injury to properly heal. Good time to sit him vs the Cardinals.

    It never stops amazing me how uneducated and plain dumb people. Can be….. Maclin is a tough player whose always battled through injuries….. If the Birds end jp beating this god defense and sad pathetic offense and their weak little fan base because of a Maclin TD, I hope you losers come back here and comment that you were wrong…..
