Jeremy Maclin was listed as limited with a groin injury on Monday after hurting it following the Philadelphia Eagles’ comeback win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday, and now we know the cause of the injury.
Per Tim McManus, Maclin told reporters on Tuesday that his groin was hurt when cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha jumped on him to celebrate the winning touchdown he caught on the final play of the game.
As many have quipped, the injury was Asomugha’s first hard hit of the season.
The injury won’t keep Maclin out of the Eagles’ Thursday game against the Bengals, but it does make for a funny story. And, sadly, injuries during celebrations occur far more often than you’d think. Here’s a list of many of them.

Philadelphia receiver Jeremy Maclin, who caught nine passes for 104 yards and the game-winning touchdown on 13 targets Sunday against the Buccaneers, is listed as questionable for Thursday's game against Cincinnati.Fantasy Spin:Maclin has struggled with injuries and ineffectiveness all season so it's going to be difficult to trust him on four days against the Bengals, but...
Mike Vick is a mystery to most football fans. When he hit the field three years ago as a beneficiary of a Kevin Kolb injury, he was thrust into the spotlight and performed like everyone thought he would. Like his potential dictated when the Atlanta Falcons took him in the first round.That was so many years and so many animal abuse trials ago and he isn't the young man or transcendent...
Going into Sunday’s game at Tampa Bay, there were two things I wanted to see out of the Eagles. First and foremost was improvement out of Nick Foles. The second was improvement from the defense. Win or lose, I didn’t care too much as long as I saw those things.
Let’s start with Foles. Week by week, he is making positive strides. With the announcement that Michael Vick...

Cincinnati Bengals as they recover from head injuries, and tight end Brent
Celek will be joining them on the sidelines after sustaining a concussion of
his own last weekend.
Vick and McCoy were cleared to return to practice earlier

It is embarrassing. Whether you are the team with history on your side, or an upstart looking to make history. It is embarrassing. Losing consecutive games and not living up to the potential. No one is immune to it. Every franchise has felt its share of buckling at the knees. The difference is some of the franchises learn how to right the ship. Others get caught up in...
Bryce Brown it is once again. In our estimation it would be a mistake to play Lesean McCoy at all from here on out. The Eagles season is over and mercifully for Eagles fans the Andy Reid era is drawing to a close as well. Barring an injury it's clear that we won't see Michael Vick on the field and reading between the lines in Reid's recent comments it seems the same...
While some may have held out hope that LeSean McCoy would be able to return to the Philadelphia Eagles in time for Thursday night’s game against the Cincinnati Bengals after being cleared to practice, it is not going to happen for the star running back, as his concussion symptoms are not completely gone.
McCoy has passed his baseline test that will allow him to return to the practice...

The Philadelphia Eagles now have a more recent win than the Phillies, woohoo! After a long eight-game slide, the hometown birds are finally back in the W column by beating the playoff hopeful Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Rookie QB Nick Foles is certainly impressing everyone from fans, to teammates, to coaches. He looked like a poised veteran when he threw the...
Congratulations! You have made your fantasy football playoffs. Now is not the time to try something new. That being said, Thursday Night Football gives you the Philadelphia Eagles against the slipping Cincinnati Bengals. Do you have a play here?QuarterbacksOkay last week Nick Foles was the No. 2 fantasy quarterback. He threw for 381 yards with two passing touchdowns and one running...
NewsBefore you could even sit down to enjoy the game, Eagles wide receiver Jeremy Maclin put the ball on the ground. The Bengals had noticed the carelessness with which the Birds handled the football and came into the game thinking about forcing fumbles. They’ve already got one early.
The offensive line isn’t getting a lot...
