UPDATE: Eagles WR Jeremy Maclin might have serious leg injury

Jeremy Maclin @jmac_18 is hurt. We don't know to what extent yet, but here's what is known: Maclin had to be carted off during Saturday's practice because of an apparent right leg injury. Here is what Jeff McLane of the Philadelphia Inquirer saw:
"The Eagles wide receiver covered his face with a towel as he was wheeled inside. Maclin lay on the ground for about five minutes as the Eagles' medical staff tended to him. Players were visibly upset, and coach Chip Kelly stood nearby as Maclin lay flat on his back."
McLane admits he didn't see the exact moment of injury, but according to eyewitnesses, he was told that Maclin broke from the line of scrimmage, took a few steps and collapsed. McLane says Riley Cooper @RileyCooper_14 appears to be picking up Maclin's snaps.


Update: The results of Maclin's MRI have not been made public yet, but before that was finished, Eagles beat writer Jordan Raanan tweeted that he's hearing Maclin tore his right ACL. That would obviously end his season. Another note will be published when this is confirmed.

Fantasy Analysis:

Oh, boy. Non-contact leg injuries could mean a number of things, none of them particularly good. Expect a new post on this subject to come after the Eagles finish their practice in about an hour. An update should come then. Maclin is in a contract year. A big season is expected out of him in Kelly's offense.

Does this mean D. Jackson will get more looks? I picked him up in the last 2 Fantasy drafts.
