Jeremy Maclin has sat out back-to-back losses to the Chicago Bears and Minnesota Vikings because of a shoulder injury. Breshad Perriman left the game against Chicago in the second quarter because of a concussion, and Mike Wallace suffered a concussion in the first quarter of Sunday’s 24-16 loss at Minnesota.
“Maybe from the outside looking in, but at the end of the day, me being the type of person that I am and him being the person he is, we’re doing everything we can to get out there and play,” Maclin said after Monday afternoon’s practice. “It’s two totally different situations. He was in the concussion protocol, and I was dealing with my own issue. But I think we’re trying to do everything we can to get out there and play.”
All three receivers participated on a limited basis in Monday’s session, which would seem especially significant with Michael Campanaro not practicing because of a shoulder ailment. Coach John Harbaugh took the return of the three receivers as “a positive sign.”
