Starting wide receivers DeSean Jackson and Jeremy Maclin were still sidelined Thursday at Eagles training camp, but head coach Andy Reid is seeing improvement with both.

"DeSean Jackson, you saw [him] out running today, so [he'll] continue on with that. I don't think [he's] too far away here," Reid said.

"[Maclin's] feeling pretty good right now, so we'll see. He's had a little bit of a bone bruise in there when he hyperextended. He's feeling remarkably well. Just keeping tabs on him here and see how he does. I don't think it will be very long."

The injuries have opened the way for receivers like Riley Cooper, Kelley Washington and Chad Hall to practice with the first team.

Cooper has already become a fan favorite and catches just about everything thrown at him. He should make the team as a WR4 or WR5, behind Jackson, Maclin, Jason Avant and possibly Hank Baskett.
