Eagles wide receiver Jeremy Maclin tore the ACL in his right knee during practice Saturday and could miss the season.
Maclin went down at the end of a non-contact drill and appeared to be in pain while he was on the ground for several minutes. He was helped onto the cart and needed assistance getting off it and going into the team's practice facility.
“Appreciate all the love and support twitter fam....sad day but I have setbacks my entire life. Minor setback for a MAJOR comeback! (hash)birdgang,” he wrote on Twitter.
Philadelphia is in its second full practice under new coach Chip Kelly. The first practice with pads is Sunday.
Maclin has averaged 64 catches, 863 yards and six touchdowns in his first four seasons. His best year was in 2011 when he had 70 receptions for 964 yards and 10 TDs.
Ravens TE Pitta injures hip, could miss season
Ravens tight end Dennis Pitta dislocated his hip in practice and is expected to remain sidelined throughout the preseason and, according to a report, could miss the entire season.
The Ravens already ruled him out of their season opener Sept. 5 against Denver.
ESPN reported Pitta underwent surgery on the hip late Saturday.
The injury occurred during practice when Pitta collided with safety James Ihedigbo in the back of the end zone vying for a pass from Joe Flacco.

“He's doing well,” coach Rob Chudzinski said following practice. “He's responsive, and it sounds like things are better at this point.”
