Jeremy Maclin not practicing Thursday, “unlikely” to play Friday

The Eagles saw wide receiver Jeremy Maclin leave Wednesday’s practice early with a hamstring injury, although Maclin said after the session that he didn’t feel it was serious and still hoped to play in Friday’s preseason game.

It doesn’t look like that is going to happen. Jeff McLane of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports that Maclin is a spectator at Thursday’s joint practice with the Patriots and that he is “unlikely” to be in the lineup when the two teams play on Friday night.

Maclin’s injury came after a couple of strong days of practice against Patriots cornerback Darrelle Revis, continuing what McLane calls a “herky-jerky” training camp for the wideout.┬áPer McLane, every sign of progress in Maclin’s return from a torn ACL has been followed by something that slows down the pace. It was soreness in the legs before this week’s hamstring issue, all of which Maclin has deemed the normal course of events when returning from such a serious injury.

That may be the case, but it probably doesn’t make it all that much more reassuring to anyone hoping that Maclin can be a reliable top option for Nick Foles this season.

    Hope 4 quick recovery looks like he unnecessarily “toasted” his hamstring

    This is a great opportunity for Eagles fans to brag. Let’s get on it folks. Time’s a wastin’ . . .

    More and more… It seems he wasn’t cut out to play with the big boys

    I think the writing is on the wall that he won’t be able to suit up for all 16 this year. At this point I would be thrilled to have him healthy for 10. I think these guys can all step up periodically to soften the blow:

    -Zach Ertz
    -Jordan Matthews
    -Josh Huff
    -Brent Celek
    -Darren Sproles

    Revis was going half speed so he wouldn’t pull a hammy like that so who’s smarter now

    Replaced by Larry Fitzgerald next year….
    Hey a guy can dream can’t he? I love Maclin though, I hope he kills it this year and we resign him.

    Why not just save this headline every year Maclin is in the league? He and hamstring injury are one in the same.

    Ugh. I hope Cooper’s ankle is doing well.

    The decision to let Jackson go while getting nothing in return will hurt,no matter what the Eagles say. To have to rely on Maclin will make that decision even more stupid.

    Different sport and only one other example but for Philadelphia, the Sixers forward (center this year) Nerlens Noel had very similar soreness and hamstring issues while coming back from an ACL tear in the summer league, however with montitoring and sitting him down from time to time there wasn’t any serious injury.

    Friday Night Foles aint gonna have no one to throw to! Thank God its only preseason. but seriously these guys cant rest on last years achievements. I was born a few years after they last won an NFL championship. I have seen the Phillies and Flyers win TWICE!! Hell even the Sixers got one…my senior year of high school but they still got one. Am I really asking too much of this team over the next few years? one will do

    First of all Maclin has a tweaked hammy not exactly a life threatening injury. Secondly the Eagles have three pas scathing tight ends they can light up which includes Zac Ertz who possesses a skill set as good as some of the to wide ous in the game. Lastly they still have Shady and Sproles so those thinking the Eagles will fall off are going to be very disappointed.

    ^^ ^^ ^^

    PERFECT, they replace with Jackson with a guy whose always hurt, a guy who made a racist overtone, and 3 TE’s who have WR skills (but slower, lol) and a 30+ year old 5’4″ RB, and who are getting thrown balls by a QB whose had one good year at QB and has shown the ability to get the ball downfield.. thanks for doing the rest of the Division a favor… screw the downfield passing game and go to the 4-5 yrd passes to 3 TE’s and a teeny weeny RB.. :)
