Eagles' Jeremy Maclin re-injures right knee during preseason game

Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver Jeremy Maclin missed all of 2013 with a torn ACL in his right knee. With the Eagles parting ways with wide receiver DeSean Jackson during the offseason, they could use a healthy Maclin in the upcoming season.

In the preseason game against the Pittsburgh Steelers Thursday night, Maclin went down and was grabbing his right knee again. It initially caused some panic that he had re-injured his knee.

While it is clear that he injured his knee in some capacity, it doesn’t look like he tore his ACL again. It looks more like a hyper extension, and Maclin was able to get up and walk off the field under his own power. He then returned to play shortly there after.

All good signs for Maclin and the Eagles.

If you missed the play you can watch it for yourself below and try to make your own amateur diagnosis.
