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.

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.

The Eagles heard the insults from some Seahawks after their 24-14 loss to Seattle on Sunday, but they were not going to trade barbs. The players know how poorly they played. Quarterback Mark Sanchez, who passed for only 96 yards, was on the receiving end of defensive end Michael Bennett's humor. After sacking Sanchez and recording two tackles for a loss, Bennett told USA Today: "You need to tell the Philadelphia police that they need to put an [APB] out, because Sanchez is out there trying to impersonate a good quarterback.

What is it about Riley Cooper? The Eagles defend him as if he were accused of a crime he didn't commit and they were the law firm of Darrow, Cochran, & Dershowitz. He had 47 receptions last season and already has 46 through 13 games this season. That's good. The rest . . . hmmm. His yards-per-catch average has plummeted, from 17.8 last season to 10.2 this one. He has caught one touchdown in 2014 after catching eight in 2013. He has ticked off teammate Jeremy Maclin by making a joke about Maclin's contract situation.

Chip Kelly continued to support Eagles wide receiver Riley Cooper, who had three catches for 13 yards Sunday in a 24-14 loss to the Seattle Seahawks. Kelly has routinely stood up for Cooper throughout the season when asked about the player's production. Cooper has made 46 catches for 470 yards this season. Kelly pointed out that Cooper had 47 catches all of last season. But Cooper also averaged 17.8 yards per catch with eight touchdowns last season. This year, Cooper has averaged 10.2 yards per catch and one touchdown.

The performance of Eagles quarterback Mark Sanchez mirrored his team's during Sunday's 24-14 loss to the visiting Seattle Seahawks. Sanchez isn't expected to carry the offense, but on this day he wasn't able to provide any extra lift. Coach Chip Kelly said afterward the Eagles went into the game thinking they could run against the NFL's statistical top defense. Instead the Eagles managed just 2.6 yards per carry. While the run failed, the pass didn't do much better. Sanchez completed 10 of 20 passes for 96 yards, two touchdowns, and one interception.

Richard Sherman cupped his ear, antagonizing the Philadelphia crowd during the Eagles' 24-14 loss to the Seattle Seahawks, and the Seahawks cornerback had every reason to gloat. There was no possible retort. The silence of the Eagles offense spoke volumes. If the Seahawks' visit on Sunday offered a chance to measure the Eagles against the defending Super Bowl champions and coach Chip Kelly's offense against the NFL's top defense, then the loss became an indisputable indication that the Eagles are not yet in Seattle's class.

The Eagles were unlikely to beat the Seahawks if they could generate only 57 rushing yards, so when they were held to so few on the ground it wasn't a surprise that the passing game was ineffective against the Legion of Boom. But did their receivers have to be so thoroughly dominated in the Seahawks' 24-14 win over the Eagles on Sunday at Lincoln Financial Field? Jeremy Maclin, Riley Cooper, and Jordan Matthews were targeted 16 times and caught only eight passes for 77 yards. Richard Sherman is probably the best cornerback in the NFL, as Chip Kelly said after the game.

LeSean McCoy needs 48 yards to break the Eagles' franchise rushing record. McCoy has 6,491 career yards. Wilbert Montgomery (6,538) has held the record since 1984. "It's something cool," McCoy said. "I never imagined when I got drafted here that I'd potentially have the chance to hold the rushing record as an Eagle. That's something big. That's something I'm looking forward to. The main goal is just to win the game, obviously, but in the way of doing that, I'd love to accomplish that.

MARK SANCHEZ'S first regular-season pass with the Eagles was a 52-yard completion to Jeremy Maclin in the second quarter of their 31-21 Week 9 win over Houston. Maclin split the cornerback and safety on a post route and Sanchez heaved the ball into Maclin's waiting arms. It seemed to be an immediate indication of the trust that coach Chip Kelly had in Sanchez. He wasn't going to play it safe just because his starting quarterback was on the shelf with a broken collarbone. But that long pass to Maclin has been one of the few deep balls Sanchez has thrown since he replaced the injured Foles.

If the culture of the locker room translates directly to the playing field, as Chip Kelly likes to say, then it's easy by now to see why Kelly chose to roll the dice on the recovery of Jeremy Maclin rather than live through another season with talented diva DeSean Jackson as his featured wide receiver. Jackson brings a lot to the table, but he can also knock over glasses and use the wrong silverware once he's there. Kelly said that releasing Jackson after a great season was solely a football decision, and, from his point of view, that's exactly what it was - because the culture controls the football.

LeSean McCoy outdueled Cowboys running back DeMarco Murray in the Eagles' 33-10 win over Dallas, which was a matchup of the NFL's best rusher from 2013 and the best rusher in 2014. McCoy finished with a season-high 159 yards, more than twice Murray's total of 73. "I know where I stand," McCoy said. "We can go back and forth about it, but I know where I stand. In the big picture, it's about winning games. It wasn't about me vs. him. Obviously, I wanted to outrush him. That's a pride thing.
