Wide receiver Jeremy Maclin was carted off the field this afternoon, adding to a long line of injured Eagles players.

Maclin limped into the building to be examined. The team said he had a hyperextended left knee and was still being evaluated. The Eagles said a further update would be available tomorrow.

Later, Maclin left the fieldhouse saying he felt relieved.

"Hyperextended my knee a little bit," he said. "Should be all right, though."

Asked for a timetable, he said: "We'll see. Should be all right, though."

"It is (a relief)," he said, when prompted. "Nobody wants to experience anything that's season-ending or anything like that" 

"I just kinda got stuck in the ground, man, my leg just kinda buckled on me a little bit."

Maclin had spoken to reporters about being sore after morning session.

The team cut short its practice following the injury.
