Eagles wide receiver Jeremy Maclin suffered a hip injury on Sunday, coach Andy Reid said Monday. The injury is a hip flexor strain and a hip pointer, and Maclin is "pretty sore today."

There is no word yet on Maclin's availability for Sunday, but the injury could linger even though Maclin was able to finish the game. Reid said the injury hurts more in the days after than that day.

"He battled through it," Reid said. "You got to give him credit for that. He got himself through it, but he's awful tender today."

The Eagles are already thin at wide receiver. Riley Cooper, who is out with a fractured collarbone, will not be ready for Sunday. If Maclin is injured on Sunday, the Eagles would need to add a receiver to the active roster.

Other injuries...

- Jason Avant suffered a wrist contusion.

- Jaiquawn Jarrett suffered a shoulder strain.

- Curtis Marsh has a hamstring strain.
