Eagles wide receiver Jeremy Maclin suffered a hip pointer during Sunday's 17-16 win over Cleveland, Andy Reid said at his day-after news conference on Monday.

"He has a little bit of a hip flexor there, too," Reid said about Maclin. "The hip pointer, with those things they hurt you more the next couple of days. He battled through it. You have to give him credit for it."

Reid did not indicate if Maclin will miss Sunday's game against Baltimore. If he does, Reid said Riley Cooper (collarbone) will not replace him.

"It was good to get a win in," Reid said. "I thought defensively we came out and played very well, really in all phases of defense, against the run and pass. I thought the defense set a great tempo. They played fast and furious football."

Reid also talked about Michael Vick's performance. "Michael took the blame yesterday," Reid said. "It wasn’t a one-man show. Everybody had a piece of this pie. From me to the coaches … to the play-calling, the penalties. … You start looking at 456 yards of total offense and you’re not putting it in the end zone, that’s ridiculous.

"Everybody had a piece of this. It’s always going to fall on the quarterback's shoulders. He takes the responsibility and he takes it to heart. But when you put on the tape, everybody has to do their job."
