Wide receiver Jeremy Maclin and tackle King Dunlap are out for Sunday's game against the Cardinals, Eagles coach Andy Reid said Friday.

Rookie Damaris Johnson is expected to start in Maclin's place. Demetress Bell will take Dunlap's starting spot at left tackle.

Maclin suffered a hip pointer against the Ravens, his second such injury of the season. Dunlap suffered a hamstring strain on Sunday.

Neither Jeremy Maclin nor King Dunlap was in shells or wearing a helmet at the beginning of Friday's practice, an indication that they aren't practicing. Practice is closed to reporters after warm-ups, so it's difficult to gauge what their participation was thereafter.
