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.

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.

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.

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.

Mark Sanchez spent the spring the way he finished last season - taking snaps as the Eagles' first-team quarterback. Depending on Sam Bradford's health, this week's mandatory minicamp might be Sanchez's last opportunity to take the majority of the snaps. The Eagles will practice Tuesday through Thursday before packing up for summer and returning for training camp Aug. 2. Bradford could be recovered from the torn anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee by the start of camp. Although coach Chip Kelly said it would be an open competition at quarterback, the Eagles probably did not surrender Nick Foles and a second-round pick for a healthy Bradford to hold a clipboard on the sideline.

The Eagles released Evan Mathis on Thursday, ending a months-long stalemate between the team and the Pro Bowl guard over his contract. "Thanks for the memories Philly," Mathis posted on Twitter. The Eagles had no comment. Mathis said Chip Kelly called him to deliver the news. Mathis has been the only Eagles player to miss all voluntary workouts this spring. He said he planned to attend the three-day mandatory minicamp next week, and even attempted to prove it by texting to a reporter a confirmed flight plan that had Mathis flying from Phoenix to Philadelphia on Sunday and returning next Friday.

There is no mystery about why the Eagles - let's get specific here, we're talking about Chip Kelly - cut Evan Mathis on Thursday. Mathis wanted a new contract. He thought he deserved one, and he made that desire public. Kelly doesn't want any players on his team thinking about anything but football, which means he doesn't want them thinking about how much money they're making and he certainly doesn't want them talking publicly about it, which means Mathis was bound to be gone sooner or later.

IT WAS EARLY afternoon in Arizona. Evan Mathis was heading into a workout when his phone buzzed; Chip Kelly was calling. "We're going to release you so you can see if you can get what you want," is how Mathis recalls his message. This, the Eagles' two-time Pro Bowl left guard was not expecting, he said. He said he'd made flight arrangements to attend next week's mandatory minicamp, after sitting out optional OTAs. But clearly, Kelly didn't want to go through the awkwardness of reintegrating Mathis into a group that has been working out together for several weeks.

THE EAGLES hoped veteran wideout Jeremy Maclin would be OK, especially since they released DeSean Jackson and signed Maclin to a pricey deal. They expected slot receiver Jordan Matthews, their top offensive pick, to make a splash as a rookie. They figured Marcus Smith, their top defensive pick, would contribute on special teams and push for playing time in place of veteran linebacker Trent Cole by midseason. They projected that free-agent safety Malcolm Jenkins would stabilize their secondary.

THERE WAS a moment a couple of weeks ago during an 11-on-11 period that made you stroke your chin a bit. Darren Sproles, isolated on a linebacker on the right side of the formation, took a couple of steps and busted a slant across his defender's inside shoulder for an easy catch-and-run in the middle of the field. It was the kind of play we have seen throughout the career of the little two-legged hovercraft, and you couldn't help but wonder if it was something that Chip Kelly decided he was going to need to see more of after Jeremy Maclin signed with the Chiefs in March.

JOSH HUFF had one of those telling pauses while answering a question about his strength as a wide receiver. "I feel like once I have the ball in my hands, I'm one of the best receivers in the game," the Eagles' second-year receiver said yesterday, "but . . . , I mean, I've got to get it in my hands first. " I'm not sure what the high side of expectations was for Huff's rookie year. After all, even though the 2014 draft was considered deep in talent at wideout, Huff was still on the board when the Eagles drafted him in the third round, 86th overall, out of the University of Oregon.

CHIP KELLY has many deserving lieutenants, but none deserves commendation like receivers coach Bob Bicknell. If things go well in 2015, none will earn his money more than the man they call "Bick. " For the third consecutive season Bicknell is charged with reconstructing a receiving corps with essentially no predictable pieces. No problem. The last two seasons the Eagles broke the team record for passing yardage, a feat that made Bick a candidate for the 49ers' offensive coordinator's job (a toxic post Bicknell declined)

EVERY LOST season needs its pariahs. Every pariah needs a defender. Fairly or not, the scapegoated Eagles of 2014 forever will be cornerback Bradley Fletcher and receiver Riley Cooper. Fletcher's knack for getting burned prompted the Eagles to cut ties with him (though the Super Bowl-champion Patriots found him worthy of a roster spot). Cooper, however, will return, the veteran presence on a wet-eared receiving corps . . . for better or worse. Cooper's breakout 2013 season raised expectations and got him a big raise, but his unremarkable 2014 season brought into question his presence on Chip Kelly's ever-fluid roster.

EXPECTATIONS loom for Nelson Agholor, coming into an Eagles wideout corps that saw DeSean Jackson jettisoned in 2014, then said goodbye to Jeremy Maclin this spring. Agholor, the team's first-round rookie, drafted 20th overall, is expected to join second-year talents Jordan Matthews and Josh Huff, plus holdover Riley Cooper and presumably veteran free-agent signee Miles Austin in the remade, Chip Kelly-era receivers group. Agholor will be measured against Matthews' rookie year, of 67 catches for 872 yards and eight touchdowns, which was only the No. 2 rookie receiving year in franchise history (behind Keith Jackson in catches, DeSean Jackson in yards and Calvin Williams in receiving TDs)
