Jeremy Maclin Has A Hip Pointer Injury, May Not Play SundayBREAKING NEWS, Eagles, News, Wide Receivers Monday, September 10th, 2012
Andy Reid just finished his weekly news conference and he says starting wide receiver Jeremy Maclin has soreness in one of his hip flexors and he’s day to day. Theres no certainty that he will play next week against the Baltimore Ravens.
I think they need to bring back free agent wide receiver Mardy Gilyard to this football team. He was the most complete receiver they released a week ago.
“As you know with hip flexors and hip pointers, they hurt you a lot more the next couple of days than they do when the thing actually happens,” Reid said. “But he battled through it.”
Maclin showed me something yesterday. He hurt his hip early in the game, but refused to not be there for his football team. Hopefully he’ll be able to get back to play on Sunday.
The Eagles only healthy wide receivers are DeSean Jackson, Jason Avant and Damaris Johnson. Riley Cooper is on the roster but he’s still recovering from a shoulder blade fracture. Avant hurt his wrist, but he’s a tough player and I think he’ll definitely be ready to line up next week.
They have Marvin McNutt and B.J. Cunningham on the practice squad but I don’t think either one of them is ready to help this football team right now.
He admitted that the Birds could have run the football more against the Browns with Michael Vick having a terrible day.
