Eagles WR Jeremy Maclin on playing Sunday night: 'I should be alright'
Eagles wide receiver Jeremy Maclin needed some time off to rest his balky hip last week. It seems to have done him some good as he practiced fully on Thursday. Maclin wouldn't say after practice that he's 100 percent, but he's getting there.
"We'll continue to increase the workload as the week (of practice) goes on," Maclin said. "I should be alright."
Maclin's Eagles will go head to head with the Giants on Sunday night.
Maclin probably shouldn't have played against the Ravens in Week 2 and ended up making his hip worse as a result. But it appears that he'll be healthy enough to suit up Sunday night. if Maclin makes it through another full practice Friday and the talk stays positive regarding his status, Maclin is at least a decent WR2 against the Giants' gimpy secondary.
