It looks like Jeremy Maclin dodged a bullet (ironically, he was hurt with Kevin Kolb at QB, not Vick).

Per csnphilly, the MRI on Maclin’s knee showed only a bone bruise.  It also showed no ligament damage.  No timetable is set for his return, but he should be back within 2-3 weeks. 

The exciting young wideout hyperextended the knee at practice on Tuesday.  It was initially feared that he tore his ACL.

Maclin will pair with DeSean Jackson as one of the most dynamic wide receiver pairings in the league.  With the Eagles going with the untested Kevin Kolb as their new starting quarterback, reps in camp are key to building continuity and rhythm.
