Maclin in St. Louis for Testing

3

Ruh-roh. Wide receiver Jeremy Maclin has returned to his hometown of St. Louis to receive further testing as the Eagles attempt to identify an illness that has sidelined the 23-year-old, the team said. Maclin has been at training camp for more than week but he has yet to practice. The most he has done on the practice fields is partake in light conditioning drills. Maclin recently said that he was getting better. Eagles coach Andy Reid said last week that he expected his starting wideout to be back by the start of the season. From Jeff McLane in "Bird's Eye View".

Yahoo Sports: Adam Jones is becoming an Orioles Centerpiece

Because the Baltimore Orioles remain "a work in progress," as he terms it, Adam Jones may have to bide his time before he can strut his stuff in October. But let there be no mistake: The Orioles’ center fielder, who at 23 is younger than Ellsbury and Upton, is not afraid of the company he is keeping in the American League East.
