The Eagles passing game has survived without Jeremy Maclin in the lineup, although it's clear after three games that they miss the injured wide receiver. The offense has not struggled to accumulate yardage - the Eagles are No. 2 in the NFL in total yards and No. 13 in passing yards - but it has become more dependent on DeSean Jackson. Now the undisputed No. 1 pass catcher, Jackson has 43 percent of the Eagles' receiving yards. That's the third highest percentage in the NFL. "He's a very talented player.

After the hardest year of his football life, Jeremy Maclin couldn't have taken an easier route to redemption. Nick Foles had fooled the Jacksonville Jaguars' defense with a play fake; LeSean McCoy had thrown a timely and vital block to fend off an oncoming defensive end; and Maclin was alone in the center of Lincoln Financial Field. Here it was, the fourth quarter of Maclin's first game since he tore the anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee last July, and now all he had to do to score the decisive touchdown in the Eagles' 34-17 victory Sunday was to wait for Foles' pass to land in his hands.

Poor Donovan McNabb. After one season with the best wide-receiving tandem he had as an Eagle, he gets traded to the Washington Redskins. Kevin Kolb will be the beneficiary of what has the potential to the top wide-receiver twosome in Eagles history. DeSean Jackson was a star from the start. Injuries made him the first rookie receiver to start a season opener under Andy Reid, but Jackson's six catches for 106 yards against the St. Louis Rams was a sign of things to come. Jackson set an Eagles rookie record with 62 catches and 912 receiving yards.

There were more ex-Eagles than current Eagles at Todd Herremans' third annual Hoops 4 Hope fund raiser Thursday night at Vie Restaurant. A month ago, LeSean McCoy, Jeremy Maclin, Trent Cole and Herremans were four of the more notable Eagles and accounted for a combined 32 seasons in Philadelphia. But after a flurry of moves and decisions from Chip Kelly that had McCoy dealt to the Bills, Maclin choosing the Chiefs, Cole and Herremans released and eventually signed by the Colts, and Nick Foles traded to the Rams, the Eagles took on a dramatically different look in a matter of weeks.

Wide receiver Jeremy Maclin suffered another hip pointer Sunday and is unlikely to practice Wednesday, Eagles coach Andy Reid said. Maclin has not been ruled out for this Sunday's game at Arizona. He suffered a similar injury in the opener against Cleveland but was able to play in Sunday's win against Baltimore. "I stood here last week and told you it was going to be a struggle, and then he came around," Reid said Monday. "So I'd just tell you it's day-to-day. " Maclin, whose lone catch against Baltimore was a 23-yard touchdown, told reporters after the game that this injury was more serious than the first.

Jeremy Maclin stepped off the line of scrimmage on Saturday, tried to move to his left, and felt his right leg stick in the ground. The leg hyperextended and popped. Maclin sprawled devastated on the turf. He didn't need a diagnosis. He knew that he tore his anterior cruciate ligament and would be out for the season. "It wasn't the fact that it hurt," Maclin said. "It was the fact that I knew what happened. I was emotional, just knowing everything that was at stake. This is something I love to do. I love to play football.

The Eagles' Jeremy Maclin tore the anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee during Saturday's practice. It is an injury that will cost the 25-year-old wide receiver the season and will leave the Eagles trying to fill the void left by the loss of a productive starter just two days into camp. Maclin collapsed during noncontact 7-on-7 drills at the NovaCare Complex. He was helped to a cart after being examined on the turf for about five minutes. Coach Chip Kelly and general manager Howie Roseman turned from watching practice to monitoring Maclin while he was on the ground.

Jeremy Maclin sat in a room at Benjamin Franklin High School on Tuesday morning, helping students with a financial education computer game that uses a football simulation to teach lessons about money. The Eagles wide receiver coached half of the class, a group representing his team, and picked run or pass plays of various difficulties. A multiple-choice question about finances appeared on the screen, and a correct answer produced a successful play. With the play-calling at his whim, Maclin requested some running plays for his students.

ATLANTA - Jeremy Maclin had his coming out party Sunday night. The rest of the nation found out what Philadelphia has known for a year now: The Eagles wide receiver is a budding star. Yes, the Eagles already have a superstar wideout in DeSean Jackson. But on a night when Jackson was held in check, Maclin carried the pass-catchers - until the bitter end. Unfortunately, his effort was all for naught as the Eagles fell to the Falcons, 35-31, at the Georgia Dome, and when the team needed him most Maclin couldn't hold onto a Mike Kafka throw over the middle on fourth down with less than two minutes remaining.

The Eagles have until Monday at 4 p.m. to designate the franchise player tag, which they could use on a pending free agent such as wide receiver Jeremy Maclin to effectively keep him off the open market. If the Eagles tagged Maclin, the wide receiver could sign the tender for about $12.8 million guaranteed. Outside linebacker Brandon Graham is the Eagles' other top free agent. The franchise tag number for linebackers is about $13.7 million. Those salaries are greater than the annual compensation either player would likely draw with a long-term deal.

BOCA RATON, Fla. - Andy Reid maintained strong relationships with the Eagles' decision makers after his dismissal. So when they asked him about Doug Pederson, Reid was ready with an endorsement. "I thought Doug was ready to be a head coach," Reid said Tuesday on a conference call. "He'd kind of done everything he could do here. I hated losing him because of our relationship, but I'm very happy and proud of him for the opportunity he has to lead the Birds there. " Pederson was a coordinator for only three seasons, but Reid thought he was exposed to enough to prepare him for a promotion.

The Eagles were the only team in the NFL that didn't have an "outside" receiver with more than 50 targeted passes last season. Most teams had two. Some had three. The Eagles, for various reasons, didn't have a consistent threat outside the numbers or downfield. Only two of four regulars from last season remain on the roster. Riley Cooper was released last month and Miles Austin was mercifully cut with five games left in 2015. Nelson Agholor and Josh Huff return, as expected, but neither was drafted by new coach Doug Pederson or returning general manager Howie Roseman, per se, so their futures aren't as clear as if Chip Kelly had stayed.

JUST ABOUT the only pressing need Howie Roseman didn't address in the first week of NFL free agency was his team's inexperienced wide receiving corps. The Eagles' de facto general manager checked off that box Wednesday with the signing of former Ram and Raven Chris Givens to a 1-year contract worth $840,000, including an $80,000 signing bonus, a league source said. The source said $100,000 of Givens' base is guaranteed. Givens, 26, has played four seasons in the league, which might not sound like much, but puts him at the top of the Eagles' ensemble, now that Riley Cooper is gone.

The Kansas City Chiefs were docked two draft picks and fined by the NFL for violating the league's anti-tampering policy because of "improper contact" with Jeremy Maclin when the wide receiver left the Eagles for Kansas City last offseason. The Chiefs lost a 2016 third-round pick and a 2017 sixth-round pick and were fined $250,000. Andy Reid, the former Eagles coach who now coaches the Chiefs, was fined $75,000. General manager John Dorsey was fined $25,000. The league said the Chiefs had "direct communications" with Maclin during the open negotiating period.

No new reports have surfaced yet about which side of the NovaCare Complex Howie Roseman is working from these days. It was big news last year around this time when Chip Kelly took control of the Eagles' football operations - at least we all thought he did - and Roseman's nameplate was removed from the office that was in the same wing as Kelly and Ed Marynowitz, the coach's handpicked decision-making assistant. Regardless of Roseman's office location, he obviously has risen and returned as the man in charge of putting together the roster.

INDIANAPOLIS - A tumultuous year in which Howie Roseman was removed from football operations in favor of Chip Kelly only to be reinstated after Kelly was fired illustrated that the two men had many differences. But as much as they seemingly had polar opposite personalities and football backgrounds, Roseman and Kelly differed on how to manage the Eagles roster and salary cap. It could be said that Kelly's free spending ways ultimately did him in, and as a result made Roseman even more attractive to owner Jeffrey Lurie.

In the wake of firing Chip Kelly, Jeffrey Lurie had made a pledge to the Eagles players that he claimed would accomplish two things: It would help him find the right man to be their new head coach, and it would reaffirm just how progressive and cutting-edge the Eagles' organization really was. No more would the players have to deal with Kelly's cold-shoulder style of coaching, with his inability or unwillingness to attune himself to the sensitivities and...

IT SEEMED likely to happen at some point this offseason, regardless, given Riley Cooper's lack of production relative to his salary-cap charge, but it happened Monday, the first day of the 2016 waiver period. That didn't feel like a coincidence. The Eagles, continuing their efforts to change course in the wake of dismissing head coach Chip Kelly, released Cooper, who would have counted $5.3 million against their cap in 2016. They incur a $2.4 million charge by cutting ties, so they gain $2.9 million in cap room.

The Philadelphia Eagles team that Chip Kelly took over three years ago was coming off a 4-12 season, but it really wasn't as bad as all that. The San Francisco 49ers team that just hired Kelly on the rebound was 5-11 this past season, and it might not even be that good. When you look at the two situations, it's fair to wonder if Kelly benefitted from good timing with the Eagles and will suffer the other side of that coin with the 49ers. That would be a real shame, wouldn't it? The 2012 Eagles were a dispirited bunch that quit on Andy Reid, but the offense was still ranked 15th in the league.

Doug Pederson stood in the front of the NovaCare Complex auditorium for more than an hour Tuesday afternoon. He thanked lots of people and answered question after question about the most high-profile job he has ever held. Sure, he once opened a season as an NFL starting quarterback right here in Philadelphia, but nothing he did or said mattered much, which was good because he never did or said much that mattered. Pederson was Andy Reid's chosen body and mind to bridge the gap to the start of Donovan McNabb's career.
