Eagles WR Jeremy Maclin suffers torn ACL, out for season
Eagles receiver Jeremy Maclin tore his ACL in practice on Saturday and will miss the 2013 season. Maclin led the team in receptions, receiving yards and touchdown catches in 2012.
The Eagles announced on Saturday that wide receiver Jeremy Maclin will miss the 2013 season after suffering a torn ACL in his right knee during practice on Saturday. Maclin was injured during the non-contact portion of a 7-on-7 drill and then carted off the field.
Maclin's injury is potentially a blow to the Philadelphia offense. The fifth-year receiver led the team in receptions (69), yards (857) and touchdown catches (7) in 2012. Maclin has led the team in at least one of the three categories in every season dating back to 2010.

The Eagles 19th overall pick in the 2009 draft, Maclin was going into the final year of a five-year deal that he signed as a rookie.
The 25-year-old had preliminary discussions about a new deal with the Eagles, but the two sides hadn't agreed anything before the injury. Maclin felt like his stock was going to go up in 2013, "I think I can only get better," Maclin said in June. "I think it will be good for me to go out there and just play ball and let everything else take care of itself."
