Jeremy Maclin had a big game in the opener Sunday, hauling in one of two Michael Vick touchdown passes. But he did it with a substantial amount of discomfort as he battled a hip pointer for much of the game, according to head coach Andy Reid.
“He has a little bit of a hip flexor there, too,” Reid said. “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 failed to mention Maclin’s availability for Sunday’s home opener against the Ravens, but it would be a bit of a surprise if he didn’t dress.
Maclin finished Sunday with seven receptions for 96 yards and a touchdown.
