When healthy, DeSean Jackson and Jeremy Maclin represent one of the two receiving duos in the NFL. Unfortunately for the Eagles, both have injuries that caused them to miss some practice time. Both are listed as questionable, as Maclin has a hip injury and Jackson has a hamstring problem. Both, however, are expected to play, barring any further setbacks between now and game time, despite their questionable tag. Maclin assured reporters he would play Friday after practicing in limited fashion, while multiple sources believe Jackson will play, including the Philadelphia Inquirer and NFL Network’s Jason La Canfora. The Eagles will need all the help they can get as they head home to play a Baltimore team coming off a big Monday Night win.
