Philadelphia Eagles third-year wideout Mack Hollins seems to have re-injured himself during warmups on Monday.
The biggest joke amongst Philadelphia Eagles fans over the last year has been a burning question of whether Mack Hollins is alive or not. Considering his mysterious absence, which lasted throughout the entire 2018 season, was barley talked about amongst the coaching staff and the media, nobody truly knew what was going on with the young wideout.
Last offseason, Hollins underwent surgery, which gave him a late start to training camp. Although Hollins would be healthy enough to make it to the first preseason game of the year, he wouldn’t last long. Hollins ended up battling through a groin injury, which suddenly ended his Sophomore season.
At the time though, nobody knew that Hollins was going to miss the entire year. Since Eagles’ head coach Doug Pederson liked to reveal as little details as possible regarding injuries last year, we weren’t offered too much on Hollins. Therefore, it was quite surprising to find out that he was not going to play at all in 2019. This offseason, Hollins got a late start once again.
After missing a few workouts during OTAs, the third-year wideout eventually made his way back to the field. Hollins would escape the springtime without any setbacks and even started training camp on time with the rest of the team. It looks like he could be dealing with another issue now though as he mysteriously disappeared ahead of Monday’s practice after having a day off from training camp.
What’s going on with Mack Hollins?
On Monday, Hollins was suited up and took part in pre-practice warmups at the Nova Care Complex. Suddenly, the wideout disappeared, though. That’s when it became clear he would not be practicing. About an hour later, Hollins returned to the field. This time though, he wasn’t suited up. Instead, he was wearing his practice gear, visibly sitting out for the remainder of the day.
According to Eagles’ head coach Doug Pederson, Hollins’ injury is ‘not a setback.’ Meaning Hollins’ injury is a new one, and has nothing to do with his previous issues from last season. Pederson wouldn’t go into any specific details but did label it as a ‘lower-body’ injury. Currently, there’s no timetable for his return at this time.
