Jeremy Maclin, Brandon Hughes Also Hurt Vs. Giants

A couple of other Eagles injury notes for you:

WR Jeremy Maclin sustained a slight hamstring strain and was forced to undergo an MRI examination on Monday. Initial expectations had Maclin potentially sitting out Week 4 as a result of his leg issue, but the test reportedly showed little damage, so Maclin could very well be back in the lineup by this week, practicing for this coming Sunday’s game against the Niners.

Maclin’s fellow wideout, Riley Cooper, also suffered a concussion, Andy Reid confirmed, and his status is up in the air for the coming weeks, though his absence might not mean too much behind the likes of Jason Avant and Steve Smith on the depth chart.

Backup CB Brandon Hughes suffered a hamstring strain of his own, but it’s unclear how severe the injury is. Joselio Hanson is among a slew of reserves already on the depth chart, so the Eagles aren’t believed to be too worried about Hughes’ injury. Meanwhile, on the defensive side of the ball, pass rushers Juqua Parker (ankle) and Darryl Tapp (pectoral strain) remain in recovery of previous injuries.
