Eagles WR2 spot Russell Shepard's to lose
Monday, August 5, 2013, 4:09pm
With Jeremy Maclin out for the year, Riley Cooper off somewhere getting help and B.J. Cunningham released with an injury waiver, Russell Shepard has found himself working with the Eagles’ starting offense at wide receiver across from two-time Pro Bowl pick DeSean Jackson.
Running with the starters in August and starting in September are two different things, but Shepard has certainly opened up a lot of eyes going into the preseason opener Friday against the Patriots at the Linc.
Shepard is taking advantage of no Maclin or Cooper at camp right now. Arrelious Benn has just returned from injury, but at this point is way behind.

It's hard to find a player with as many variables as Benn, the talented 24-year-old wide receiver who was acquired by the Eagles in March. One of HC Chip Kelly's maxims is that "durability is the best ability," which would not seem to be a point to ponder for Benn.
Confirmed: Jeremy Maclin tears ACL, out for 2013

Maclin was carted off the field Saturday about an hour into practice.
Maclin, a fourth-year wideout in the last year of his rookie deal, went down at the end of 7-on-7 drills.
Jason Avant will likely remain a slot receiver so expect names like Riley Cooper, Damaris Johnson, Arrelious Benn, B.J. Cunningham, Greg Salas along with rookies Ifeanyi Momah, Russell Shepard and Will Murphy to compete for the job. Benn and Cunningham were already out of practice after suffering minor injuries in Friday’s practice that rendered each one day to day. The Eagles could also use more multiple TE formations with Brent Celek, James Casey and rookie Zach Ertz.

CSN Eagles reporter Geoff Mosher said Eagles WR Riley Cooper is one of several veteran Eagles who might not be around for the season opener. WRs DeSean Jackson, Jeremy Maclin, Jason Avant and Damaris Johnson can safely be considered locks to make the team.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have placed third-year WR Arrelious Benn on injured reserve due to shoulder and knee injuries. To fill Benn's spot, both on the 53-man roster and in the receiving corps, the Buccaneers have signed David Douglas off the New York Giants' practice squad.
Benn was the second of two second-round picks made by Tampa Bay in the 2010 draft. In 37 games and 24 starts he has recorded 59 receptions for 862 yards and five touchdowns, averaging 14.6 yards per carry.
