Eagles WR Jeremy Maclin is scheduled to have surgery today 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. More here.
