I just got back from Eagles training camp and wanted to provide a few updates on the Maclin injury situation.
He was hurt in a no pads, non-contact drill. He was running a pattern, planted his foot and went down. Kind of a freak injury, and nothing that could have been prevented. He was taken off the field by cart after clearly favoring his left leg.
The Eagles soon announced that he had a “hyperextended left knee” and that the team was still evaluating him and would have a further update tomorrow.
About a half an hour later, Kevin Kolb told 97.5-FM The Fanatic that he had just visited Maclin who was positive and Kolb didn’t get the impression that the injury was anything serious.
Maclin later told reporters “I should be all right.” He was seen walking out of the locker room under his own power with his leg in a sleeve.
