BETHLEHEM, Pa. -- The Eagles suffered another injury -- and yet another injury to one of their starting wide receivers when Jeremy Maclin fell to the ground with a hyperextended left knee, the team said, at Tuesday's afternoon practice.

The Eagles said Maclin will still be evaluated.

Maclin was sprawled out on the turf for several minutes as trainers looked him over. Coach Andy Reid came over, observed the scene and then called off the rest of practice.

"It killed the mood," wide receiver Hank Baskett said of Maclin's injury.

The second-year receiver had to be carted off the field and helped into the locker room. Maclin's injury comes on the heels of DeSean Jackson's back injury from Saturday. Jackson hasn't played since, although Reid said he was near to returning.

The Eagles were also missing center Nick Cole this afternoon. Mike McGlynn filled in. Guard Stacy Andrews (shoulder) did return, as did wideout Jordan Norwood (hamstring).

Back with more.
