Jeremy Maclin Injury: Eagles WR Has Hip Flexor Strain

The Philadelphia Eagles may have pulled out a Week 1 win over the Browns, but they did not do so without suffering a handful of injuries. Perhaps the most notable personnel loss was to wide receiver Jeremy Maclin, who suffered a hip pointer during the game and now has a hip flexor strain.

Here is the latest from head coach Andy Reid on how Maclin's hip progressed over the night.

"'He's got a little bit of a hip flexor strain in there too. That happened after the hip pointer. As you know with hip pointers those things hurt you a lot more the next couple of days than they do when they actually happen. But he battled through it. You have to give him credit for that. He battled through it and got himself through the game but he's awfully tender today."

Maclin left the field in the second half Sunday, but would later return to the game.

The Eagles are a bit shorthanded at wide receiver and Maclin's status will definitely be something to keep an eye on throughout the week. Reid also said receiver Riley Cooper would not be ready in time for Philadelphia's Week 2 matchup with the Ravens.
