Eagles' Maclin tears ACL in right knee

The Sports NetworkJuly 27, 2013 

Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver Jeremy Maclin suffered a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee during practice on Saturday.

Maclin was on the ground for a few minutes as the Eagles' medical staff tended to him. The Missouri product was only able to put weight on his left leg as he was helped into the back of a cart and taken off the field.

An MRI conducted afterward revealed the severity of the injury, which will likely require season-ending surgery.

In 15 games last season, Maclin caught 69 passes for 857 yards and seven touchdowns.

The 25-year-old is entering the final year of the five-year contract he signed in 2009.
