Eagles budding second-year wideout Jeremy Maclin was carted off the field with a hyperextended left knee today. Jeff McClane of the Philadelphia Inquirer provided play-by-play Tweets. According to receiver Hank Baskett, Maclin’s injury “killed the mood”, prompting coaches to end practice early. Maclin needed help walking from the cart into the locker room. No word yet on the severity of the injury. If Maclin, for whatever reason, is unavailable, the Eagles would likely turn to possession receiver Jason Avant.

UPDATE: Maclin was able to walk out of the locker room under his own power. He had a sleeve over his knee and said his foot got caught in the ground.  

UPDATE II: Derrick Gunn of CSNPhilly.com reports that Maclin's MRI revealed only a bone bruise. There was no ligament or structural damage. No timetable yet for his return.

KARMA is a B!*TCH!!!
For how the Eagles handled McNabb, I hope they all get put on the PUP list and go 0-16.
What do you mean, they could've traded him to Buffalo or the Raiders, so it could've been worse?!  However it's stange the Defense was decimated by injuries by the 1st preseason game and now it's the Offense's turn with both Jackson and Maclin getting 'injured'.  From what I understand neither is serious but serious enough to be news blotter I guess...
