Injuries: Maclin Likely Out 1-2 Weeks

Head coach Andy Reid updated the Eagles' injury situation following their thrilling 45-38 victory over the New York Giants to grab hold of first place in the NFC East.

It appears the Eagles will be without rookie starting wide receiver Jeremy Maclin for one to two weeks. Maclin tore one strand of the plantar fascia in his foot, Reid said.

The good news at wide receiver is that Kevin Curtis is rebounding well from his knee inflammation after practicing last week for the first time in about two months. Reid is optimistic that Curtis will be able to play this week.

Running back Brian Westbrook will also continue to practice this week after practicing last week, and Reid is confident in Westbrook's prognosis for this week as well.

Reid also noted three players who got dinged up against the Giants and are considered day-to-day. Tight end Brent Celek has a sore back that he played through, defensive end Trent Cole has a hamstring strain and fullback Leonard Weaver has a slight hamstring strain.

All three are expected to be ready to play in the upcoming game against the San Francisco 49ers.
