Eagles wideout Jeremy Maclin said Friday he expects to play in Sunday's game against the Ravens. Maclin (hip) and DeSean Jackson (hamstring) were partial practice participants.

"I didn't really feel any pain," Maclin said. "That's a good thing. Right now, everything's a go."

Asked if he thought he would play Sunday, Maclin said: "I'll be all right."

Maclin said he was "really sore Monday morning" after suffering a hip pointer and a hip flexor injury in the opener at Cleveland, but was encouraged when he felt much better Monday night and Tuesday, after treatment. "Normally that injury gets worse, and it got a lot better," he said.

Jackson was not available for comment, but both he and Maclin were listed as "questionable." Eagles coach Andy Reid seemed optimistic about having both of them against the Ravens.

Maclin did a good job of disguising his pain in the locker room after the Cleveland game.

"Can't let y'all see me sweat," he said Friday.

Wideout Riley Cooper (collarbone) was also listed as a partial participant, as was corner Curtis Marsh (hamstring). Cooper will not play Sunday, the Eagles said, but Eagles coach Andy Reid said "everybody else has a chance to be out there."

Jackson tweaked his hamstring during practice Wednesday, Reid said.
