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.

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.

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.

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.

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 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.

GREAT SLOT receivers usually have a great quarterback throwing the ball to them. "Most of the teams that have success in there usually are teams that have a quarterback that is extremely accurate," Eagles receiver Jordan Matthews said. "Well-focused guys like Peyton Manning. His slots usually do well. Tom Brady. His slots always do well. "You've been able to see what Aaron Rodgers and Randall Cobb have been able to do. You see what Drew Brees has been able to do with Marques Colston and Brandin Cooks.

In the fabulous Eagles roster game of what-happens-next, let's consider a player who doesn't show up for voluntary predraft workouts, is coming to the end of his economical rookie contract, and, truth be told, doesn't really fit the prototype height and weight for the position he plays under Chip Kelly. Minus skipping the workouts, that could describe Brandon Boykin, who had served admirably as the slot cornerback, and what happened next was that Boykin was traded to the Pittsburgh Steelers for a conditional fifth-round draft pick.

Josh Huff wrote down his individual goals for the season on a piece of paper. The Eagles wide receiver rattled them off: He wants to have no more than 10 drops in 16 games. He wants to catch every catchable pass. And he wants to finish the season with at least 50 catches for 800 yards and six touchdowns. Those aren't modest goals considering Huff's output in his rookie season. He caught eight passes for 98 yards and no touchdowns and dropped four of 17 targeted throws in 2014.

Right guard competition The Eagles have four of their five offensive line starters settled. Right guard remains an open competition. Andrew Gardner, Matthew Tobin, John Moffitt, and Julian Vandervelde are all in the running for the spot. Gardner took the first-team snaps during practice on Saturday and has taken the most of any player this summer. He started eight games for the Eagles last season, including six at right guard. The 29-year-old is a steady veteran who knows the offense.

THE ENTIRE vibe changed when Ricky and the Rev showed up for training camp. In the early days of the 22-year run of the Jeffrey Lurie Era, those two skilled players legitimized the Eagles as a viable NFL team: Ricky Watters and Irving Fyrar. Watters' "For who, for what?" legacy clouds the magnificence of his three-year stretch as the Eagles' premier player. The bizarre nature of Fryar's life post-Eagles - his unretirement from football; the church he founded; his recent conviction on mortgage fraud charges - clouds the fact that he was the Eagles' only Pro Bowl receiver for an 11-year span.

THERE ARE a lot of things that are tough to judge from practice. Here's one that isn't: Jordan Matthews and Sam Bradford have developed some serious chemistry over the first week-and-a-half of Eagles training camp, and everybody at the NovaCare Complex will testify. Nolan Carroll: "He's hungry, man. " Byron Maxwell: "He definitely looks like he's gotten bigger. " Bradford: "I think that guy catches more footballs than anybody I've ever seen. " If you can purchase stock in Matthews, the Eagles' second-year receiver, do it before the start of the regular season.

Quick: Where will Reggie Bush be taking handoffs this season? Whose uniform is Brandon Marshall now wearing? Which city's fans will Percy Harvin disappoint this year? Once again, before we can get serious about another year of fantasy draft prep, we must pause to examine the NFL's shifted landscape. Heck, I've been tracking all the offseason moves on the Fantasy Fools blog since February, and I'm a lifelong Dolphins fan; but until I started writing this week's column, I had forgotten that my hometown team had acquired once-and-hopefully future fantasy stud Jordan Cameron to upgrade the tight end position.

There once was a time when NFL teams didn't expect their rookie wide receivers, even the ones drafted high, to make an immediate impact. The demands of the position, along with the disparity between pro and college defenses, often made it difficult for receivers to transition in one year. But last season, three rookies surpassed 1,000 yards receiving. Another finished 18 yards shy of the mark, and the Eagles' Jordan Matthews, despite an incremental increase in playing time as the season progressed, accounted for 872 yards through the air. It may end up that the 2014 draft class of receivers, arguably the best ever, altered the expectations for the position.

Almost every Eagle had trickled inside the NovaCare Complex on Monday afternoon, but Jordan Matthews wasn't one of them. The second-year wide receiver had stayed behind to work with tight end Zach Ertz, the two jogging routes behind large tackling dummies to practice catching passes in traffic. Then they moved to the JUGS machine, and Matthews stabbed balls out of the air before tossing them into a gray bin to his right. It was only the second day of his second professional training camp, but Matthews stayed late to polish the one skill he sees as a common thread between the NFL's best receivers.

IT WOULD BE so great to know what Chip Kelly was really thinking on Jan. 17, 2013, the day he was introduced as the 21st coach of the Philadelphia Eagles. Did Kelly know then that to fully implement his vision, he would need a different type of running back than LeSean McCoy, a different type of quarterback than Nick Foles or Michael Vick, a different type of receiver than DeSean Jackson, and a totally revised secondary? Did he envision that the nexus of contract, age and salary cap issues would mean he would shed Trent Cole, Jeremy Maclin, Todd Herremans and Evan Mathis, among others, by the time he opened his third training camp, for which workouts begin on Sunday?
