The Eagles are trying to work their way back from being NFL joke fodder to being an at least decent team this season under coach Chip Kelly. That quest is going to be a little bit harder with wide receiver Jeremy Maclin's torn right ACL. The Eagles were doing padless 7-on-7 drills in practice today when the injury occured.

Maclin led the Eagles in receptions for the last two seasons, and was entering the final year of his five-year contract with Philadelphia.

It's unfortunate, but Maclin tweeted he's already familiar with struggle. Hopefully, his ACL heals soon.
