The Eagles wide receiver is scheduled to have surgery tomorrow in Birmingham, Alabama by Dr. James Andrews. Andrews is one of the top sports orthopedists in the world and it is usually not a good sign when a player resorts to visiting Dr. Andrews.
Maclin, who enters the last year of his rookie contract, injured his right knee during a 7-on-7 drill without any contact. He started off the line during a drill and just collapsed grabbing his right leg.
The 25 year old was in visible pain on the field with his hands covering his face. The former first round pick was carted off the field for a MRI and the Eagles announced he tore his ACL later Saturday evening. He suffered the same injury in the same knee seven years ago while playing for the Missouri Tigers. He will be out for the season.
Last season with the Eagles, Maclin caught 69 passes for 857 yards and seven touchdowns. In four full seasons in Philadelphia, he has pulled in 258 balls for 3,453 yards and 26 touchdowns. Maclin has only missed five games in his career prior to this season.
