Eagles Training Camp Injury Report: Jeremy Maclin sits out of practice

New, comments

No major injuries have occurred through fifteen Eagles training camp practices and one preseason game.

Bill Streicher-USA TODAY Sports

The Philadelphia Eagles finished their fifteenth training camp practice (somewhat of a walk-through, no pads) on Thursday and there are still no major injuries to report. There are a few minor ones to note, however.

WR Jeremy Maclin (hamstring)

Maclin watched Thursday's practice from the sideline. The Eagles receiver tweaked his hamstring during Wednesday's session (8/13) and held himself out for the remainder of the practice. When Maclin spoke after practice, he said he was fine and hopes to play Friday night against the Patriots. The media did not hear from Maclin following Thursday's practice.

WR Riley Cooper (foot)

Cooper, unlike Jeremy Maclin, participated in the walk-through. Cooper spoke with media and indicated that he won't play on Friday night but he does hope to return to practice on Sunday, August 17th. Cooper added that he's hopeful to be ready for the Eagles' third preseason game against the Pittsburgh Steelers on Friday, August 22nd.

***

With Maclin and Cooper possibly out against the Patriots, the Eagles starting wide receivers will be some combination of: Jeff Maehl, Arrelious Benn, Ifeanyi Momah, and Brad Smith.

CB Nolan Carroll II (hamstring)

Out of practice since Monday, August 4th. Carroll II was seen doing some running off on his own.

ILB Jake Knott (hamstring)

Out since Friday, August 1st.

CB Jaylen Watkins (hamstring)

Out since Wednesday, August 13th.

RB Chris Polk (hamstring)

Out of practice since Monday, July 28th. Polk was seen warming up with the team but didn't have a helmet on, so no practice.

RB Matthew Tucker (hamstring)

Out since Friday, August 8th after leaving the Bears game early.

RB David Fluellen (?)

Out since Wednesday, August 13th.

***

With the Eagles missing bodies at running back, the only healthy players are: LeSean McCoy, Darren Sproles, Henry Josey. Eagles wide receiver Damaris Johnson has been taking some reps at RB just to fill space.

The Eagles are still fortunate to not have had any major injuries to this point*. At this date last year the team had already lost wide receiver Jeremy Maclin, linebacker Jason Phillips, and wide receiver Arrelious Benn to ACL injuries.
