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.

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.

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.

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.

Jeremy Maclin played the complete game Sunday in Tampa, Fla., without injury and caught the game-winning touchdown on the final play against the Buccaneers. So when the Eagles wide receiver was listed on Monday with a groin injury there were more than a few arched eyebrows. On Tuesday, Maclin was asked if he was injured on the last-second touchdown pass from Nick Foles. "That is kind of what did it," he answered. Was it sliding for the catch or running back out to midfield to celebrate?

THE THOUGHT at the time was that the Eagles did not want to be in a position where they had to draft a safety early. They had drafted for need, disastrously, near the end of Andy Reid's regime, and they did not want to do it again. That was general manager Howie Roseman's thinking when he spoke in late February at the NFL Scouting Combine in Indianapolis: "You don't want to force a position and you don't want to not take a position just because of what you have at the moment. You have to take the best player.

When Jeremy Maclin signed a one-year deal with the Eagles, he tried explaining how he would increase his value despite what seemed to be a surplus of offensive weapons. After the Eagles released DeSean Jackson, Maclin's one-year signing proved prescient. He is now the team's No. 1 receiver, poised to fill the role that spurred Jackson to the best season of his career. And it should only increase Maclin's value for a bigger payday. "I didn't really think about it," Maclin said Thursday at teammate Todd Herremans' charity event, hours before Jackson was released.

Some of the Eagles' top players attended Todd Herremans' second annual charity event at a Center City ballroom Thursday night at a time when the future is uncertain for two of their most prominent teammates: receiver DeSean Jackson and guard Evan Mathis. The players expressed varying degrees of support while acknowledging that the organization has the final say anyway. "[Jeffrey] Lurie, Howie [Roseman], Chip [Kelly], they're not calling down to us, asking us: 'Do we need this?

ORLANDO - With the exception of the re-signings of Jeremy Maclin and Riley Cooper, the trade acquisition of Darren Sproles and the 'til-death-do-us-part contract extension given to Jason Kelce, it's safe to say Eagles fans largely have been underwhelmed by the organization's moves in the first 2 weeks of free agency. They passed on a three-time Pro Bowl safety with 22 career interceptions (Jairus Byrd) for a more affordable one with zero Pro Bowls and six interceptions (Malcolm Jenkins)

ORLANDO, Fla. - Some of the thinking behind the Eagles' apparent decision to shed star wideout DeSean Jackson could be gleaned from the things Howie Roseman did talk about yesterday, after he declined to talk about Jackson. The general manager talked effusively about new acquisition Darren Sproles, spoke confidently about Jeremy Maclin's ACL recovery. He touted the wide receivers in the upcoming NFL draft as the richest position group, and noted how top-rated receivers tend to fall in the first round.

ATLANTIC CITY - In his first extensive public comments since January, Chip Kelly said price was not a factor in the Eagles' approach to free agency and emphasized that the Eagles' key offseason strategy was to re-sign core players before free agency even opened. Kelly said safety Malcolm Jenkins' versatility was the reason the Eagles targeted him. He added that it was too early to determine whether the defense has made enough upgrades this offseason to improve from their No. 29 ranking last season.

Darren Sproles arrived at the Eagles facility on Friday for the first time since the team acquired him a day earlier, and management quickly showed how much it wanted the 30-year-old running back by giving him a two-year contract extension that could keep him in Philadelphia through 2016. Sproles, who was hoping that the Saints would release him so he could choose his own team, was pleased with the deal to the Eagles. His concern was going to a team in which he did not fit, but that does not appear to be an issue.

MALCOLM JENKINS is sold on Philadelphia, even if Philadelphia isn't totally sold on him. "I see the vision and the direction that Chip has got this team going in, and I'm about winning. I know the fan base here is a passionate fan base, and I'm a passionate player . . . The Eagles are obviously the best fit for me and where my career is going at this point," Jenkins told a NovaCare news conference last night. "I'm looking forward to just getting a fresh start here in Philly. " Jenkins, signed for 3 years and $15.5 million, which could be $16.25 million with incentives, isn't Jairus Byrd, or Darrelle Revis, the defensive-backfield names who would have generated so very much more March excitement.

FREE AGENCY is always a tricky line to walk. Basically, it comes down to a general manager, coach and staff making an honest assessment of where their team is and where it can reasonably go in the upcoming season. And that's where Eagles general manager Howie Roseman and head coach Chip Kelly have a dilemma as the NFL's free-agency period opens at 4 p.m. today. Who are the Eagles and what are they capable of doing in 2014? I'm not sure if even the people who put this team together know for certain.

When free agency opened last March, the Eagles agreed to deals with five players within the first four hours. Two days later, they signed three more. When free agency begins on Tuesday at 4 p.m., the Eagles could take a similarly quick, targeted approach. General manager Howie Roseman has had two months to plan for the free-agent period and three days to negotiate with agents. Last season provided a good example of the team's philosophy of identifying free agents and going after them once the market opens.
