Maclin expected to be ready for Giants

Posted: September 25, 2012

THE EAGLES' injury list is growing but they might get one of their top wide receivers back this weekend when they play the New York Giants.

Eagles coach Andy Reid said at his day-after news conference on Monday that Jeremy Maclin is making progress with his hip pointer. Reid expects Maclin to be ready to face the Giants.

Wide receiver Riley Cooper (collarbone) was going to have his injury checked Monday.

Starting left tackle King Dunlap, who was replaced by Demetress Bell in Sunday's loss to the Cardinals, is improving with his hamstring strain. "But if we had a practice today he would not practice," Reid said about Dunlap.

Reid also said Bell would start against the Giants if Dunlap is still injured.

Long snapper Jon Dorenbos has a high-ankle sprain, linebacker Akeem Jordan has a hamstring strain and rookie defensive tackle Fletcher Cox had migraines during the Cardinals game. "He has had a history of those, and that was a concern with him on the sideline there," Reid said about Cox.
