Jeremy Maclin cuts practice short after hamstring tweak

Jeremy Maclin AP

The Eagles and Patriots are practicing with each other this week, a setting that offers wide receiver Jeremy Maclin to try out his knee against cornerback Darrelle Revis.

That test seemed to go well for Maclin. Jeff McLane of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports that Maclin drew three holding penalties on Revis during Tuesday’s practice and added that Maclin continued “to toast” Revis during Wednesday’s session. Even with the caveat that Revis is not be giving every ounce of himself during the workouts, that’s a positive sign for a player coming off a serious injury.

Less positive is the fact that Maclin pulled himself out of practice early on Wednesday. He said after the session was over that it was a left hamstring tweak that caused him to sit out the remainder of practice, but that he still hopes to play in Friday’s preseason game. McLane also reports that Maclin was icing his right knee, the same one with the torn ACL, although that appears to be a precautionary measure.

If he does play this week, he’ll likely get a chance to face a more spirited Revis and another measurement of how far he’s come in his recovery.

    So revis wasn’t playing hard, maclin was playing hero ball in a meaningless one on one drill, and he blew his hammy out. Hilarious. Chip kelly back to school in 2015.

    Jeremy Maclin is hurt, what else is new.

    Even if Maclin is out half the season… the Philadelphia Eagles will still win the NFC East.

    Precisely why Revis isn’t going full speed. Let ‘em win the camp battle and live to play when it counts.

    I was at camp this am and in all honesty why would either one of them go full speed in a wind driven rain storm …I know you have to practice but its August 13th for petes sake…….just my opinion please dont bash me now……

    Skins fans, once again, thank the eagles for dumping Desean. Your 2nd rounder can’t catch, and Maclin can’t stay on the field. Of course, you always have Cooper. hahahaha. HTTR!

    “So revis wasn’t playing hard, maclin was playing hero ball in a meaningless one on one drill”

    I doubt Revis “wasn’t playing hard.” You know his coach is Bill Belichick, right?

    The haters are funny.

    Haters: Chips offense won’t work
    Reality: finished as of the tops in league
    Haters: well Chip is fat

    Haters: Eagles won’t win under Chip
    reality: 2013 NFC EAST CHAMPS
    Haters: they throw snowballs

    Haters: Lesean MCCoy talks to much
    reality: best RB in the league
    Haters: the eagles have no Super Bowls

    Maclin out? Alright, “Momah, more reps for you.”

  25. officialgame says: Aug 13, 2014 2:44 PM

    Revis was’t cover him on the play but he tweaked his hammy avoiding BB who got himself in a bad spot. In retrospect Maclin should have flattened him.

  26. Youknowimright says: Aug 13, 2014 2:50 PM

    Oh and by the way foles got picked by patrick chung. Wowsers.

    Are we seriously saying that running fast = hamstring injury? Maclin is playing hero ball because he is competing in practice for the first time since an injury and he wants to see where he is? Revis was going half-speed (after being beaten- wasn’t going halfspeed to begin plays- there are people who watched the practice and people who didn’t) means he can’t get hurt?

    Hammy tweak can happen to anyone. Maclin needs to NOT play friday, or the next week, or the next, though. Just rest it dude, it’s a minor thing, don’t make it major.
