Maclin To IR; Eagles Re-sign WR Nick Miller

The Eagles placed Jeremy Maclin on injured reserve Tuesday and re-signed receiver Nick Miller.

Maclin suffered a right ACL tear in practice on Saturday.

“It’s definitely going to hurt us, for sure,” said LeSean McCoy of Maclin’s loss. “If anybody tells you anything differently, they’re lying.”

Two days after Maclin’s injury, reserve linebacker Jason Phillips tore his ACL on the same field and was also lost for the season.

Miller was released by the Eagles on July 24 to make room for running back William Powell, who was promptly waived after failing his physical. The 5-9, 180-pound receiver out of Southern Utah has had two stints with the Raiders and one with the Rams, and saw action  as a kick and punt returner for both teams. He has four career catches for 48 yards in the NFL.
