Eagles WR Jeremy Maclin misses practice due to 'leg soreness,' 'not a big deal'

NJ.com - [Full Article]

For the second consecutive day, Eagles wide receiver Jeremy Maclin attempted to start practice but was unable to finish it. After landing awkwardly on a reception during Monday's session and removing himself from practice, Maclin came out with his teammates at the start of practice and went through some light work against no coverage but did not participate in any of the full team activities the rest of the day.

Maclin, 26, said afterwards that he was being held out of practice because of general soreness in his legs. "It's just some leg soreness, not a big deal," Maclin explained after practice at the Novacare Complex Tuesday. "I probably could have gone today but I wanted to wait until it was 100 percent."

Fantasy Impact: 

Maclin was the #13 WR in 2010, #31 in 2011 and #27 in 2012 before tearing his ACL last summer. The Eagles don't throw as much under Kelly as they did under Andy Reid, but Maclin has the talent and opportunity -- DeSean Jackson is gone -- to be a fantasy starter in 2014, provided his knee is good to go.
