WR Jeremy Maclin Should Be Okay After Shoulder Injury

Philadelphia Inquirer/Philadelphia Daily News - [Full Article]

Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver Jeremy Maclin suffered a contusion of his left shoulder in the second quarter of Friday night's game against the Cincinnati Bengals and did not return.

After the game, Eagles coach Andy Reid said that Maclin was "OK" and that X-rays were negative.

Maclin suffered the injury when he caught a pass from quarterback Kevin Kolb on third and 4. Maclin made the grab short of the first-down marker and was met head on by Bengals cornerback Johnathan Joseph.

Maclin stayed on his feet and suffered another blow, but dropped to his knees on the Cincinnati sideline.

The second-year receiver left the game with three receptions for 18 yards, with his longest gain being 8 yards.

It's the second significant injury for Maclin this preseason. He hyperextended his knee early at training camp and missed a week of practice with a bone bruise. But he returned much earlier than initially expected.

With Maclin sidelined, Hank Baskett filled in opposite DeSean Jackson at receiver.
