"Great confidence in WR Jason [Avant]" with WR DeSean Jackson out. But Avant will continue to work inside, said offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg.
It's probably not fair to expect Maclin- or Jackson-like numbers out of Avant, but he could be pretty solid as a WR3 in your lineup if you're hurting. Seems the Eagles understand Avant is best suited for his inside work and not so much as a deep threat. That will probably be left to Maclin, and perhaps even Riley Cooper will see significant time.
