Wide receiver Jeremy Maclin won’t be in an Eagles’ jersey this season.
He was carted off the practice field with what was feared to be a serious right leg injury. Now, Maclin believes it is a torn ACL.
Maclin tore his ACL in 7-on-7 drills today, and will miss the rest of the season. He is now scheduled to be a free agent in March 2014 unless the Eagles can re-sign him beforehand.
He was in serious pain on the field, as trainers looked at his lower right leg. Both head coach Chip Kelly and GM Howie Roseman looked over the scene, as trainers worked on Maclin.
He was unable to put any weight on his leg, before being carted off with a towel covering his face.
It is the first time in his career that he will miss extended time, as he would play less than 13 games in a season. He played in 13 games in 2011, but has played in 15 or 16 games since.
In 2010, it was the only time he played an entire season. He also had a career year that season, as he had 70 receptions for 964 yards and 10 touchdowns.
Last season, he played in 15 games. He also had 69 receptions for 857 yards and 7 touchdowns.
In his career, he has 258 receptions for 3,453 yards and 26 touchdowns.
