Maclin set to start against Bucs

via assets.philadelphiaeagles.com

With Kevin Curtis still sidelined with a knee injury, rookie Jeremy Maclin will get his second straight start today against the Bucs. In fact, with Curtis' injury not seeming to get any better Maclin has a shot to lock down the starting job permanently. 

The coaches aren't publicly admitting that Curtis' career could be seriously jeopardized, but they also aren't ruling out the idea of shutting down the 31-year-old receiver for a lengthy period of time.

"We're looking at that," Eagles coach Andy Reid said Friday in his last press conference of the week. "Our doctors are working on that just to see what we can do to help him get better there."

Beyond Curtis, there doesn't seem to be much competition for the starting job after Maclin. The Eagles seem intent on keeping Jason Avant in the slot, Reggie Brown can barely get on the field, and the other rookie WR Brandon Gibson hasn't played since his impressive preseason.
