Good News: Maclin and Smith Begin Practicing

Aug 27, 2011, 12:47 PM EDT

While we're still well ahead of knowing when Eagles receivers Jeremy Maclin and Steve Smith will be fully healthy (particularly Smith), it's encouraging to see that they're both taking the field at the team's practice today. Maclin has said he anticipates being able to play in the season opener against the St. Louis Rams on Sept. 11, but no timetable is yet available for Smith, who is coming off microfracture knee surgery. He has been taken off the PUP list though.
