    Ill news out of Philadelphia, where the Eagles are down a wide receiver.

    Jeremy Maclin was carted off the field after suffering an apparent right leg injury during 7-on-7 drills in Saturday's training-camp practice, as first reported by Jeff McLane of the Philadelphia Inquirer.

    Upon first examination, the Eagles fear Maclin tore the anterior cruciate ligament and medial collateral ligament in his right knee, NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reported, citing a source informed of the injury. The receiver currently is undergoing an MRI.

    Maclin lay on the ground for approximately five minutes as team trainers worked over him. New coach Chip Kelly stood by as Maclin lay on his back; and the fifth-year wide receiver covered his face with a towel as he was wheeled away.

    McLane reported that offensive tackle Jason Peters, who missed last season with a ruptured Achilles tendon, consoled Maclin as he left the field.

    Maclin's loss is costly for the Eagles. He a consistent producer, accounting for 69 receptions, 857 yards and seven touchdowns last season. Over his four NFL seasons, he's averaged 65 catches and 863 yards per season. Alongside DeSean Jackson, Maclin figured to play a pivotal role in Kelly's up-tempo scheme.

    We'll continue to update this story as we learn more.

    It really does. Such players are an important cog to the offense and there is no chance they can be replaced easily. Dude was more than steady the previous years. Him and Jackson was one of the best wide receiving duos out there.
