Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver Jeremy Maclin will struggle to practice on Wednesday because of a hip injury, according to his head coach. We break down the fantasy implications.

Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver Jeremy Maclin has an added hip contusion and will struggle to practice on Wednesday, coach Andy Reid said on Monday. Reid gave the update a day after Sunday's win over the Baltimore Ravens during which Maclin had a 23-yard touchdown catch. Reid also said DeSean Jackson had a hamstring spasm. Jackson finished with seven catches for 114 yards in the win.

Fantasy Impact: Maclin continues to have trouble with his hip and that could become a concern for fantasy owners. He had been slowed by a hip pointer heading into Week 2. Fantasy owners will have to monitor the progress of both Maclin and Jackson as the week goes along. If healthy, they are No. 2/3 receivers in most fantasy leagues.
