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.

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.

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.

THE EAGLES' wide receivers are not perceived as the strength of the team, especially since Jeremy Maclin went down with a season-ending knee injury. But Jeff Maehl, the one Eagles wideout who has played in a Chip Kelly offense previously, says he thinks they do some important things well. "It's a hard-nosed group. Obviously, we've got DeSean [Jackson], who can take the top off of man coverage, make a big play at any time. After that, we're not a bunch of blazers, but we're guys who can make plays, and we're going to be physical on the perimeter, blocking, which is really important in this offense," said Maehl, who starred for Kelly at Oregon, then spent the last two seasons on the fringes of the Texans' roster, playing in three games.

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.

GREEN BAY, Wis. - The elation from six days earlier became a distant memory on Sunday, when players packed their bags in a locker room, humiliated by the worst loss since Chip Kelly became the Eagles' coach. The Green Bay Packers' 53-20 win over the Eagles escalated into a rout before halftime, and the Eagles were left swallowing an embarrassing defeat just days after what was perhaps their best performance of the season. "With the way we played today, it wouldn't have mattered if we played Oakland, who hasn't won a game yet," wide receiver Jeremy Maclin said.

WHEN IT COMES to fantasy points allowed to quarterbacks, the Eagles defense has been among the most generous this season. In CBS Sports' scoring, they've given up the fourth most. In ESPN's, they have given up the second most. That is precisely why Aaron Rodgers owners are as pumped up this week as Hans and Franz. "These guys are very hot and they're very hot at home," Eagles defensive coordinator Billy Davis said. "Aaron Rodgers is playing as well as you've ever seen him play.

For weeks, the reports about Jordan Matthews in training camp were breathless. It was hard for sportswriters to catch themselves from overhyping a rookie wide receiver who hadn't even faced NFL competition and was still running with the second-team offense. But Matthews had his second-team quarterback throwing to him for the first full game of this season on Monday night, and with Mark Sanchez on the passing end, the rookie receiver had a breakout performance in the Eagles' 45-21 shellacking of the Panthers at Lincoln Financial Field.

When Eagles general manager Howie Roseman walked into Chip Kelly's office last March and informed him that Darren Sproles could be had for the price of a fifth-round draft pick, Kelly didn't have to think about it, didn't have to sleep on it, didn't have to scour through scouting reports or watch a bunch of film. It was, as they say, a no-brainer. He knew no one the Eagles could select in the fifth round of the May draft was as good as the 31-year-old Saints running back and return man; certainly, no one would be able to provide the immediate help to the Eagles' offense and special teams that Sproles could.

NO BUTT FUMBLES. No forced throws. He even covered a dangerously low snap from Jason Kelce early in the game, when the score was close and it mattered. By the end last night, the better version that Mark Sanchez had promised delivered this: Over 300 yards of passing on a night when the Carolina Panthers sold out to stop the run, 31 points engineered in a 45-21 win and, maybe most important of all, zero turnovers. That's right, zero. It marked the first time this season that the Eagles did not give the other team the ball at least once, allowing an offense that was generating points despite itself to show what it is capable of when it gets out of its own way. And allowing a defense tortured by poor field position to feast on the opposite all night long.

MARK SANCHEZ won his first start as an Eagle, yet the quarterback was largely irrelevant on a low-stress, bask-in-the-glow kind of night, one dominated by Bill Davis' defense – and by the Carolina Panthers' haplessness. Halftime of last night's 45-21 Eagles victory arrived with the home team ahead, 31-7, even though the offense could claim only one solid scoring drive. The Panthers turned it over three times in the first 28 minutes, one of them an interception Bradley Fletcher ran back for a touchdown.

There was that moment in the Eagles' third preseason game when Jeremy Maclin took off from the line of scrimmage, ran 10 yards downfield, started a cut to the inside, and something went awry with his right knee. It locked as he planted, and Maclin fell and grabbed at the knee as the crowd at Lincoln Financial Field went quiet. He said later that nothing aside from the pain was going through his mind, but the rest of the stadium was thinking that a man who had two previous anterior cruciate ligament tears and had bet heavily against a third might have made the wrong decision.

CHIP KELLY called a deep post pattern for Mark Sanchez's first snap of the 2014 season last week, Sanchez hitting Jeremy Maclin for 52 yards in the second quarter at Houston. But as that game wore on, the Eagles leaned more and more on their rushing attack. The first half, the Birds ran for 66 yards, threw for 235. The second half, they ran for 124 and passed for 91. That second half might be closer to what you're going to see tonight, in Sanchez's first Eagles start, against the Carolina Panthers at Lincoln Financial Field.

THE FRANCHISE has been around since 1933, and in that time, only four wide receivers have appeared in more Eagles games than Jason Avant, who buckled his chin strap here 116 times over eight seasons. He was never a star, but in his prime, Avant, a fourth-round draft pick in 2006, was a key third-down target and an example of selflessness coaches hoped younger players would follow. Avant spent so much time after practice catching balls from the JUGS machine, it would have been fitting for the team to bolt a plaque to the base commemorating his dedication, after he was released last spring.

THE LATE Al Davis was obsessed with speed. Always took the wide receiver or defensive back with the fastest 40 time, regardless of production, intelligence, hands or length of rap sheet. His fondness for guys who could fly was why the Raiders inexplicably selected Darrius Heyward-Bey with the seventh pick in the 2009 draft, a curious decision that ultimately allowed Jeremy Maclin to fall to the Eagles 12 picks later. When it comes to wide receivers, Chip Kelly cares more about size than speed.
