Wide receivers DeSean Jackson (hamstring) and Jeremy Maclin (hip pointer) both missed practice on Thursday for the Philadelphia Eagles. We break down the fantasy implications.

Philadelphia Eagles wide receivers DeSean Jackson and Jeremy Maclin both did not practice on Thursday because of injuries, coach Andy Reid said. Jackson was held out because of a pulled hamstring, while Maclin remains out because of a hip pointer. The team has not announced the status of either player for Sunday's game with the Baltimore Ravens.

Fantasy Impact: The surprising news here is Jackson, who had four catches for 77 yards in last weekend's win over the Cleveland Browns. Maclin's injury is not new, although it's a little disconcerting that he didn't practice. Reid earlier this week refused to rule Maclin out for Sunday's game, so fantasy owners will have to wait for injury reports to come out later in the week to determine the best plan of action for both players.
