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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

PATRICK CHUNG made the blood of Eagles fans run cold. Chung lacked closing speed; played without instinct; cost the Eagles innumerable yards in his 15 starts at safety in 2013. In a secondary devoid of playmakers on a defense full of uninspiring players, Chung was the poster child for its ineffectiveness and Exhibit A of Chip Kelly's obsession with employing his former Oregon Ducks. Generally considered the worst starter on a flawed squad, Chung was cut after the 2013 season.

The Eagles signed defensive back E.J. Biggers and wide receiver Seyi Ajirotutu to one-year contracts Tuesday, adding more depth to positions of need. Biggers, 27, comes from the Washington Redskins and has played cornerback and safety during his five-year career. Ajirotutu, 27, spent most of his career in San Diego and has been a productive special-teams player. Both players were in Philadelphia on Tuesday. Biggers, who played for Tampa Bay during the first three seasons of his career before spending two years in Washington, is 6 feet and 185 pounds.

Jordan Matthews spoke to teammates Riley Cooper and Josh Huff, and the message he delivered was to disregard the perception that the Eagles need a No. 1 wide receiver after Jeremy Maclin left for Kansas City. "People ask me about being the No. 1 wide receiver; Forget it," Matthews said in a telephone interview Thursday. "I want us to be a receiving corps. That's what I want it to be. " Maclin finished with 85 catches for 1,318 yards and 10 touchdowns last season while playing 87 percent of the snaps.

Miles Austin revamped his warm-up regimen before last season to shake the "injury-prone" label that now follows the 30-year-old receiver to the Eagles. Austin played the first 11 games of 2014 for the Cleveland Browns without major problems with his hamstring, which forced him to miss 11 games in his final three seasons with the Dallas Cowboys. Then, he suffered a lacerated kidney in the 12th game, ending his season and bringing him onto the free-agent market after another unfinished campaign.

LIKE THE NFL'S endangered extra point, physicals given to players to make signings and trades official tend to be almost automatic. That might not be the case when Eagles doctors give wideout Miles Austin the once-over, though. Austin, who turns 31 in June, last played a full NFL season in 2012 and has a chronic hamstring problem. The NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reported yesterday that the Birds have signed Austin to a 1-year deal worth $2.3 million, with another $700,000 possible in incentives.

I HAVE an admission to make; one I never thought I'd utter as a 47-year-old man. Please bear in mind that this is not easy for me, because I used to scoff at others for doing the very thing I'm going to share with you. But as difficult as this might be, I need to tell the truth about what I've become, and I need to do it before I change my mind. Before I go there, however, I need to make one thing clear. None of this is my fault. It's all because of Chip Kelly. Had he not cut DeSean Jackson last year, the bitterness would have never taken root.

This article has been corrected. An earlier version said the Eagles' seven new players missed an average of 12 games last season. Chip Kelly continues to hand out money to players with extensive injury histories. The Eagles agreed to terms Monday on a one-year contract with wide receiver Miles Austin and extended and restructured linebacker DeMeco Ryans' contract through 2016. The oft-injured Austin has to pass a physical Tuesday before he can sign a deal that is worth $2.3 million and with $700,000 in incentives, an NFL source said.

PHOENIX - Chip Kelly has told us on more than one occasion that you judge quarterbacks by their win-loss record. Told us that again yesterday morning when he was answering yet another question about - who else? - Marcus Mariota, who won 36 of 41 starts and turned water into wine at the University of Oregon. OK, maybe I made up the water-into-wine part. If that's true, if it's all about a quarterback's wins and losses, how do you explain the Eagles trading Nick Foles, who had won 14 of 18 starts the last two seasons, for Sam Bradford, who had an 18-30-1 record in five injury-plagued seasons with the Rams?

PHOENIX - Jeffrey Lurie says he believes in the necessity of a franchise quarterback for sustained success in the NFL, and he hopes Sam Bradford can become that player for the Eagles despite an injury-plagued career. "There was an opportunity to do an upside gamble with an outstanding young quarterback who you hope can become healthier throughout his career," the Eagles owner said Tuesday at the NFL meeting. "It is so hard to get a franchise quarterback, as you know. It sets the ceiling on what you have as a team, and do you want to take upside gambles or not?
