Geoff Mosher of CSN was on hand for the session, and he noted the prognosis looked disconcerting:

Sheil Kapadia of PhillyMag.com noted the training staff draped a towel over Maclin's eyes, as the Eagles wide receiver seemed emotional about his injury:

There is no word on the prognosis of Maclin's injury at this time. He was hurt during non-contact seven-on-seven drills, and he reportedly laid on the ground for about four minutes writhing in pain. Kapadia noted he was favoring his right leg, though it's unclear whether it was a knee, ankle or foot injury.
Maclin, the Eagles' co-No. 1 receiver with DeSean Jackson, has missed at least one game with an injury in three of his four professional seasons. The 25-year-old speedster caught 69 passes for 857 yards and seven touchdowns last season, despite the Eagles' quarterback situation being in flux for much of the campaign.
Maclin is expected to be a major cog in Philadelphia's offense this coming season, as new head coach Chip Kelly looks to improve on an offense that ranked 15th in the NFL in 2012. Kelly took over this offseason from longtime coach Andy Reid, who was fired after a 4-12 campaign.
A former first-round pick out of Missouri in 2009, Maclin is entering the final year of his rookie contract.
The Philadelphia Inquirer's Zach Berman noted that the two sides were discussing a multi-year extension in June. It's unclear how close the two sides were to carving out an agreement, though a long-term injury would likely place discussions on hold.
The Eagles began their training camp session Friday. They open their preseason slate against the New England Patriots at Lincoln Financial Field on Aug. 9. Philadelphia's first regular-season contest is a month later against the division rival Washington Redskins.
