They start hitting this week. The Eagles begin training camp on Saturday, and that's what makes it different. That's what separates training camp from mini-camp and rookie camp and an organized team activity - the cumbersome term for a gathering that might resemble passing camp or summer camp or band camp but, per the NFL's collective bargaining agreement, cannot resemble actual football camp because players aren't permitted to tackle each other....

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.

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.

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 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.

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.

Like birds that headed south for winter, the Eagles' offensive skill players are slowly migrating back to the Philadelphia area. Instead of gathering at the NovaCare Complex, however, they're assembling in Cherry Hill at ever-popular Power Train Sports. Quarterback Michael Vick and wide receiver Jeremy Maclin are the latest to enlist trainer Steve Saunders in their offseason workouts, joining tight end Brent Celek and a handful of other Eagles. Running back LeSean McCoy will join the flock next week.

The two fumbled punts were concern enough for Eagles special-teams coordinator Ted Daisher to pull his rookie returner, Jeremy Maclin, aside for a meeting Saturday. Daisher has seen young, electric returners struggle initially but prosper later, like Cleveland's Josh Cribbs. Yes, there is a learning process. But Daisher needed to set the record straight with Maclin right away. "You can't make a big play every time you touch the ball," Maclin recalled Daisher saying. "Sometimes you have to do the right thing.

SOMETIMES WHEN we touch, the honesty's too much . . . LeSean McCoy has probably never heard that 1977 Dan Hill song, and he is much better for it, since it regularly earns a high spot in polls ranking the worst-ever lyrics. But McCoy had an issue with being touched yesterday by his Eagles teammate and buddy, Trent Cole, after McCoy became the 879th running back, by unofficial Daily News count, to elude the second-day training-camp pass coverage of a pursuing linebacker. Some Eagles described the touch as more of a hard bump, in what was supposed to be a noncontact session.

AS THE SWEAT streamed from Jeremy Maclin's body after practice yesterday, somebody reminded him about a most dubious anniversary. One year to the day, on a freak play devoid of contact, Maclin cut one way and his leg bent the other, tearing the anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee, and ending his season before it began. "Pretty cool," he said, with that unassuming smile of his. Pretty cool? "It's been so long and yet I remember it like it was yesterday," he said. "I'm happy to be healthy and happy to be out there.

LeSean McCoy emerged from the scuffle still enraged, needing to be restrained from going after Trent Cole again. The Eagles' star running back was upset when Cole, a veteran linebacker, pushed him off the line during a seven-on-seven drill Sunday. The first fight of training camp ensued. "The whole camp so far, it's been touching a little too much," McCoy said. "And I'm trying to let them know, 'It's OK if you can't cover me.' " McCoy flashed a smile and emphasized his friendship with Cole.

There was one point during the Eagles' spring practices when wide receiver Jeremy Maclin fell awkwardly to the ground and stayed there for a few seconds. Practices are typically loud and lively, but this one became hushed when players and coaches realized it was Maclin lying on the turf. The scare did not last long. Maclin stood up, dusted himself off, and walked off the field without issue. But the scene illustrated both Maclin's value and his perceived vulnerability one year after he suffered a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee on July 27. Maclin insisted throughout the spring that he is healthy and that the knee is not in the back of his mind.

1 Releasing DeSean Jackson: You can dispute my ranking of this as the most important move, certainly. If the offense still works smoothly - I think it probably will - and if the Redskins don't win the NFC East - I think they probably won't - then this isn't the most important move of the offseason, from an on-field perspective. But in terms of headlines generated, and in defining what Chip Kelly expects, it certainly was. The Jackson release highlighted an offseason emphasis on players who put football and the team first.

The Eagles start a 35-day period without football on Friday, putting the onus on the players to remain in shape and avoid trouble before returning to Philadelphia for training camp on July 25. The Eagles huddled as a team at noon on Thursday, having just finished their 13th practice of the last four weeks and an offseason program that started April 21. After a team meeting 30 minutes later, school was out for the summer. Coach Chip Kelly was not in a hurry to leave. His message on Thursday was ensuring they finished with a strong training session, and he did not count the minutes until the 35-day respite from football activity.

AFTER THE Eagles finished losing to the Saints in their playoff game in January, they exited the field, dressed in their locker room and talked about how they expected to improve in Year 2 of the Chippah. After the Eagles finished their third preseason teaching camp yesterday, they exited the field, headed toward the locker room and talked about how they had improved on several categories of intangibles. That might be true. They might be a smoother machine, more completely comprehending what innovative head coach Chip Kelly wants on offense, more quickly understanding what innovative coordinator Billy Davis needs on defense.

THERE'S A LOT riding on Jeremy Maclin's comeback from last July's torn right ACL. Eagles coach Chip Kelly has talked about how eager he is to see Maclin in his offense. Maclin is the main reason the Birds were comfortable parting with DeSean Jackson. Maclin might turn out to be the most significant addition to the 2014 Eagles, but the team's 2009 first-round pick still has some hurdles to cross. Wide receivers coach Bob Bicknell acknowledged this when he was asked Monday how Maclin was doing.
