Maclin out for Sunday, Curtis could return

Andy Reid has announced that Jeremy Maclin has been ruled out of this Sunday's game against the 49ers.

Jeremy Maclin has torn one strand of his plantar fascia, Eagles coach Andy Reid said yesterday. The bottom line seems pretty much the same as it was Sunday night, when Maclin had to leave the Eagles' 45-38 victory over the host Giants - Maclin should miss a couple weeks, a setback for the receiver who ranked second among NFL rookies going into last weekend with 623 receiving yards (on 46 catches), but not a season-ending mishap.

Reid said that he expected Maclin back in a week or two.

"He should be OK, probably not this week, possibly next week. Normally it’s like a two week type of injury," head coach Andy Reid said on Monday.

The good news is that his replacement could be a guy we might have forgotten about, Kevin Curtis.

"There’s a chance we do [make a roster move], but again at that position we’ll see how Kevin’s doing," said Reid. "He really took quite a few reps, more than I thought he would last week so that will be increased this week and see how he does," Reid said. "If he’s not right, then he’s not right. We’ll work from there. He felt pretty good [last week]. His legs were tired and his wind wasn’t where he wants it, but he actually felt pretty good."
