Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver Jeremy Maclin is reportedly fine after suffering a hamstring grab in practice against the New England Patriots.
Maclin's hamstring tweak occurred on a play during training camp practice where the Eagles receiver burned Patriots standout cornerback Darrelle Revis on a deep 40-yard touchdown catch from quarterback Nick Foles. After the play ended, Maclin reportedly took himself out of drills and cursed loudly as he walked to the sideline to talk with Eagles trainer Chris Peduzzi. Maclin would go on to watch the rest of practice from the sideline.
Maclin spoke to media after the practice and said he's fine. He also added that he hopes to play against the New England Patriots on Friday night.
Maclin felt his left hamstring grab. Nothing to do with his knee. Said he's fine, nothing to worry about. Frustration was missing practice— Zach Berman (@ZBerm) August 13, 2014
Jeremy Maclin said he felt left hamstring grab a little so he came out as "precautionary" measure. Thinks he can play Friday. #Eagles— Phil Sheridan (@SheridanScribe) August 13, 2014
