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.

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.

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' 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.

TODAY, JUST as they did last year, the Eagles return from their bye looking toward a date with the Arizona Cardinals. Some things are the same, many things are different for two NFC teams that finished 10-6 last year, the Eagles winning a weak NFC East, the Cards shut out of the playoffs in the powerful NFC West. Had Arizona beaten the Birds last Dec. 1, instead of getting nipped, 24-21, after coming back from a 24-7 second-half deficit, the Cards would have gone to the 2013 playoffs.

LeSean McCoy was ready. It was late, the game was on the line, and he wanted the ball. But his number wasn't called, and he seethed. "Yeah, I was hot. I mean, who wouldn't want the ball?" McCoy said. "I wasn't [angry], but I thought I was getting it. " While the running back's reaction may seem like a reversal from statements he made this past week, the pivotal moment in question wasn't the Eagles' late-game decision to go with Darren Sproles over McCoy against the Rams last Sunday.

After another Sunday in which Nick Foles played well enough to win but not well enough to silence critics, Eagles wide receiver Jeremy Maclin defended his quarterback by pointing out two numbers. "He is 4-1 as the starting quarterback of the Philadelphia Eagles," Maclin said after last week's 34-28 win over the St. Louis Rams. "What you want is a winning quarterback. " It has become a popular refrain among the Eagles leading up to their game Sunday against the New York Giants.

When Josh Huff was drafted, the rookie wide receiver looked at the Eagles roster and knew it was going to be difficult to crack the starting lineup. The team had released DeSean Jackson and Jason Avant, but it had also re-signed Jeremy Maclin and Riley Cooper and drafted Jordan Matthews a round earlier. Maclin and Cooper would start on the outside and Matthews would be given every opportunity to replace Avant in the slot. But where did that leave Huff, whose Oregon pedigree was almost as prominent as Matthews' was at Vanderbilt?

The Eagles do not know who their starting inside linebackers will be for Sunday's game against the New York Giants. DeMeco Ryans and Mychal Kendricks remained sidelined at Wednesday's practice. Ryans has a groin injury and Kendricks continues to miss time because of a calf injury. Ryans sounded optimistic that he would play when he spoke to reporters Tuesday. He has not missed a game since he arrived in Philadelphia in 2012. "I hope [he plays], but I don't know," coach Chip Kelly said. "If there is one guy that I wouldn't count out of anything, it would be DeMeco.

NICK FOLES led the NFL last season with a 119.2 passer rating. Right now, among passers with at least 50 attempts, he's 24th, at 82.5. Pro Football Focus says he's completed 31 percent of his deep balls, defined as 20 yards or more; last season, he hit 45.5 percent. Maybe, after 27 touchdowns and two interceptions in 2013, we should have expected some sort of regression toward the mean. But Foles, with eight TDs and five INTs, has shot past the mean, right into the downright cruel.

Nick Foles' Pro Bowl campaign last season set a high bar for the Eagles quarterback. Even though the Eagles opened the season 4-1 after Sunday's 34-28 win over the St. Louis Rams, Foles has had issues this year. Foles finished 24 of 37 for 207 yards and two touchdowns, with an interception and a fumble. His longest completion was 24 yards, and he completed only two passes for more than 20 yards. Foles threw off his back foot too often Sunday, affecting his accuracy on certain passes.

Minutes after another Eagles victory, left tackle Jason Peters and defensive end Trent Cole discussed just how difficult it is to open the season 4-1. The two veterans have played 19 seasons combined, and they know 4-1 is an impressive feat. Even though a team built with an offensive emphasis became inconsistent on offense, and the defense needed to preserve a lead after surrendering three late touchdowns, the Eagles still escaped Sunday with a 34-28 win over the St. Louis Rams at Lincoln Financial Field.

Nick Foles is 12-3 as a starting quarterback under Chip Kelly, and yet, something is still missing. The Eagles won again with Foles at the wheel - a sloppy, 34-28 effort over the St. Louis Rams on Sunday - but they survived in spite of his two turnovers. A second-quarter interception was converted into a touchdown, and a fourth-quarter fumble was followed by 14 unanswered points and a Rams comeback that should have never been. The fumble was painful to watch because all Foles had to do was slide and he would have been down.

Riley Cooper agreed with many who watched the Eagles-49ers game and the Nick Foles pass that sailed his way with just under three minutes left, which would have given his team a one-point lead. He should have caught it. "There's no excuse. I dropped the ball," Cooper said Thursday. "I went up to body it. . . . [49ers cornerback Chris Culliver] was kind of holding my left side and spinning around, so I really couldn't body it. That was my intention, but I just missed it. "But it was a perfect throw, right on the money from Nick.
