Maclin goes down on last play of practice

Bethlehem, PA—Instead of clapping hands and whistles at the conclusion of the Philadelphia Eagles’ afternoon practice at Lehigh University on Tuesday, all you could hear was silence.

That’s because the injury bug struck again.

Just days after Pro Bowlers DeSean Jackson (back) and Asante Samuel (hamstring spasms) were injured during different weekend practices, second-year wide receiver Jeremy Maclin had to be carted off the field due to a hyperextended left knee.

Maclin went down on the final play of practice during 11 on 11 drills Tuesday. After a few moments of silence from the players, coaches and fans, head coach Andy Reid concluded the afternoon session and told his team to bring it in.

The 22-year old wide receiver out of Missouri caught 56 passes for 773 yards and four touchdowns in 15 games for the Birds last season.
