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.
