While we await official confirmation of Jeremy Maclin’s reported torn ACL and MCL, DeSean Jackson who is one of Maclin’s teammates and close friends, has already had a chance to react to Maclin’s injury and explain to us exactly how Maclin was injured.
“He just came off the line of scrimmage. It looked like his knee just kind of buckled on him a little bit,” wideout DeSean Jackson said after Maclin rode off the field on the back of a cart, obviously distraught, holding a towel to his face. “Hopefully it’s not too bad, he can get back out here and play with us this year.”
DeSean Jackson has played with Maclin for four of the five seasons in his NFL career, and the idea of the two playing in a fast-paced offense led by Chip Kelly sounded like a match made in football heaven. Unfortunately, barring a surprising return from Maclin’s MRI, the two won’t get to play in Kelly’s offense this year and may not ever considering Maclin is eligible to become a free-agent at the end of this season.
