Jeremy Maclin sat out tonight's preseason game against the Steelers with a hamstring injury.

The wide receiver injured his hamstring during pre-game warm-ups, the Eagles said. Rookie Damaris Johnson started in place of Maclin and caught the Eagles' first pass of the game for four yards.

Eagles coach Andy Reid did not include Maclin on his injury list Wednesday, nor was Maclin listed on the pre-game inactives list. The Eagles held a light mock game practice on Wednesday, had off on Tuesday and last practiced on Monday.

Maclin left the afternoon practice early that day with what the Eagles termed as "cramps."
