Philadelphia, PA (Sports Network) - The Philadelphia Eagles placed wide
receiver Jeremy Maclin on injured reserve Tuesday.
Maclin suffered a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee during
practice on Saturday.
In 15 games last season, the 25-year-old caught 69 passes for 857 yards and
Maclin was entering the final season of the five-year contract he signed in
2009, when Philadelphia took the former Missouri standout with the 19th
overall pick of the NFL Draft.
Riley Cooper's role is expected to increase due to Maclin's injury. Also on
Tuesday, Philadelphia signed wide receiver Nick Miller.
