Eagles get trio of offensive stars back on the practice field

Slowly, the Eagles are getting all their offensive star-power back on the field.

They eventually might all play together.

According to John Gonzalez of CSNPhilly.com, running back LeSean McCoy and wide receivers Jeremy Maclin and Riley Cooper all practiced Monday.

McCoy missed yesterday’s practice, but didn’t talk to reporters after today’s.

Cooper has missed the last two preseason games with an ankle injury, and Maclin missed last week’s game with a hamstring issue.

With that timing, the Eagles still haven’t seen Cooper and Maclin on the field together with rookie Jordan Matthews.

“Had [Cooper] or [Maclin] not been out,” offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur said, “you certainly would have seen it by now.

“They’ve had a lot of time together in the offseason, and I think we still have some time left before we play the Jaguars [in the season opener]. We’re hopeful that we’ll get them out there all together at some point.”

Of course, the Eagles won’t (or shouldn’t) show many of their regular season cards if the trio does play together Thursday night. But finally having the option should only make a good offense better.

    We need to trade one of our extra running backs for one of Buffalo’s extra kickers.

    Since when is Cooper a star, what about Maclin?

    without a defense it is going to be a long season to watch and a short season for dreaming

    Wrong the packers did. Get your facts straight before you post

    Well played.. I totally made an assumption. Wasn’t far off.. a beat up Arod’less packers… Cards were 10-6, no invitation.. Gmen went 10-6 the other year, didnt make it. Moral of the story is they got in with a so-so record

    I think the Eagles will win the division with little strain but it is very frustrating to seemingly make no improvment. Grant it, two preseason games are a lousy indicator of anything but the offense is win-now good with or without DeSean Jackson. Yes they need the carryover cap space because they need to re-sign Foles, Boykins, Cox and Kendricks this off-season so it’s understandable they couldn’t break the bank but I find it hard to believe the couldn’t of at least made a play on a free agent pass-rusher. The Eagles are actually pretty decent against the run barring their game plan against New Orleans in the playoffs. A better pass-rush would have gone a very long way.
