Jeremy Maclin Injury: Eagles WR Improving, Not Ruled Out For Sunday

Speaking at his usual Friday press conference today, Philadelphia Eagles coach Andy Reid said that Jeremy Maclin missed practice for the third straight day, but he is not ruling out the teams' leading WR for this Sunday's game against the New York Giants. Reid says that Maclin is "improving every day" and if his shoulder feels better on Sunday, he'll play.

"Really, it's the shoulder is actually the thing I told you I thought was a little more serious than the hamstring," Reid told reporters. "He ran today, it's just a matter of him feeling comfortable running. He's made improvement with that, and we'll just see how he does here the next couple days. If he doesn't go, [WR] Riley [Cooper] jumps in and plays."

Reid also said that Michael Vick will be listed as questionable and has not yet been ruled out, contrary to earlier reports. The only players ruled out for this weekend are OL King Dunlap and CB Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie. Dunlap was filling in for starter Evan Mathis, who will return this week, while DRC will be replaced by Joselio Hanson.
