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.

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.

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.

PHOENIX - When Andy Reid outbid the Eagles for Jeremy Maclin, the irony that the Chiefs coach was willing to spend top dollar on a wide receiver was not lost on anyone familiar with his past. Reid, of course, hardly ever gave big contracts to receivers when he was with the Eagles, and when he did sign Terrell Owens and DeSean Jackson to long-term deals, they were team-friendly. The rationale, one that team president Joe Banner also perpetuated, was that other positions, particularly along the lines, were of more importance.

PHOENIX - Jeffrey Lurie is scheduled to speak to reporters today for the first time since Lurie issued a Jan. 2 statement outlining the restructuring of the Eagles' front office, and as Lurie availabilities go, this would rank among the most widely anticipated ever. Lurie's Jan. 2 statement used a lot of corporate buzzwords, but didn't really explain why Lurie's closest confidant, general manager Howie Roseman, was losing that title and the personnel role that had been Roseman's lifelong objective.

DeSean Jackson, gone. Jeremy Maclin, gone. Riley Cooper, here. Chip Kelly's decision to keep Cooper rather than his most productive wide receivers over the last two years might not make much sense, but the Eagles coach has never been one to evaluate based on paper. That may be most apparent at the receiver position. Understanding how Kelly values receivers can help explain Cooper's place on the roster and the departures of Jackson and Maclin. It also points out how Kelly intends to replace the 42 percent of receiver receptions, 47 percent of receiving yards, and 46 percent of receiving touchdowns that left with the two Pro Bowlers.

PHOENIX - One year ago, the Eagles' brass arrived at the NFL's annual meeting tight-lipped about DeSean Jackson's future with the team. One year later, they'll arrive for this week's event without a big decision looming but with turbulent offseason activity behind them. Eagles coach Chip Kelly will hold a one-hour roundtable interview on Wednesday morning to further discuss the team's March makeover. Owner Jeffrey Lurie is also expected to speak publicly for the first time since he made the decision to rearrange the front-office responsibilities.

Chip Kelly likes to say that durability is the best ability. A lack of durability can sometimes lead to affordability. When a player becomes available, it's up to the team acquiring him to try to figure out why. In recent weeks, Kelly has often found that answer to be health. Of the seven new players whom the Eagles acquired this offseason, only DeMarco Murray played 16 games last season - and Murray dealt with durability concerns in previous years. The two players who the Eagles received in trades - quarterback Sam Bradford and linebacker Kiko Alonso - missed all of last season with torn anterior cruciate ligaments.

During a six-day span last week, the Eagles added eight new contracts and about $40 million of salary against their 2015 cap. On the seventh day, the Eagles rested. Friday offered the first quiet 24 hours of the free-agency period. That doesn't even include moves from the previous weeks, such as releasing expensive veterans Todd Herremans, Trent Cole, and Cary Williams. Add in the trades of Nick Foles and LeSean McCoy, and the departures of Jeremy Maclin and Nate Allen, among other changes, and the Eagles are replacing eight opening-day starters.

OH MY, my head is spinning. It's almost impossible to keep up with Chip Kelly and his wheeling and dealing. Apparently, he is moving as fast as the Eagles' general manager as his offense does on the field. Though it's almost too hard to keep up with, it certainly is exciting. Think about this, in a 10-day span, the Eagles' No. 1 running back was LeSean McCoy, Frank Gore, Darren Sproles, Ryan Mathews, and then, finally, DeMarco Murray. Even with McCoy and Gore not on the team, the Eagles have four quality running backs, but still no deep-threat wide receiver.

It's a good thing Chip Kelly can coach because his general manager has blown up his roster and so far given him a bunch of question marks, including the injury-prone Sam Bradford after the Eagles traded Nick Foles to the Rams along with draft picks. Kelly, of course, will have no one to blame but himself because he's the GM, the Mastermind, the Lord Executioner, the Captain of the Eagles' ship. He's far from remaking the team, but the quarterback, running back, top wide receiver, starting right guard and outside linebacker have all walked the plank to other environs in the last two weeks and Kelly has had little to show in return.
