Kevin Curtis May Return to Replace Maclin

Eagles’ wide receiver Kevin Curtis, who has been out since Week 2 with a knee injury, may return this week to start in place of the injured Jeremy Maclin. This from the AP:

The veteran wideout said he thought he could go Sunday night. Now, he may get the chance against the 49ers.

“We’ll see how Kevin is,‘’ Reid said. "He really took quite a few reps, more reps than I thought he would last week. So that will be increased this week and we’ll just see how he does. If he’s not right, he’s not right and we’ll work from there.

“He said he felt pretty good. His legs were tired and his wind wasn’t where he wants it to be, but he actually felt pretty good.’’

 

Curtis, who led the Eagles in receiving in 2007, has five catches for 70 yards in the two games he has played this year.

Eagles' Wide Receiver Jeremy Maclin Has Dreaded Plantar Fasciitis

Philadelphia Eagles' rookie wide receiver Jeremy Maclin left Sunday night's shootout with the Giants because of lingering plantar fasciitis, according to the Philadelphia Inquirer:

"Maclin tore his plantar fascia," Coach Andy Reid said. "That's a week or two injury so we'll see how he does as we go, but he'll be fine."

How the injury will affect Maclin's best attribute -- his speed -- when he returns remains to be seen. With Maclin out Reggie Brown and Jason Avant should get more touches, and the Eagles may try to see if the injured Kevin Curtis can play.
