There was some legitimate concern that quarterback Michael Vick might be without his top two targets when he takes the field this afternoon in the Eagles’ home opener. But it now appears that receivers Jeremy Maclin and DeSean Jackson will suit up against the Ravens.
Maclin was injured in last week’s 17-16 over the Browns when he suffered a hip pointer injury. Jackson, meanwhile, pulled up lame in Wednesday’s practice, leaving with a sore hamstring.
That both were involved in the final two practices of the week and that the Eagles opted not to sign a player off of their practice squad prior to Saturday afternoon’s deadline suggests the team is comfortable with their progress.
