Jeremy Maclin carted off with a possible ACL injury
Football is a violent sport with crushing collisions, but in many cases it's the non-contact injuries that are the worst.
Per this tweet from Jordan Raanan of NJ.com, it might be a torn ACL:
Of course, there's never a good time to suffer a potentially season-ending injury during training camp. Four years into his five-year rookie deal, however, the timing couldn't be much worse.
Yet to reach the 1,000-yard milestone in his career, Maclin expected to get a more prominent role within Chip Kelly's offense — and now he may not play a snap in his final year before free agency.
In my fantasy wide receiver rankings, which I will update within the next 24 hours, I had Maclin ranked ahead of DeSean Jackson. With the injury, Jackson's fantasy value will obviously increase as will Jason Avant, Damaris Johnson, Riley Cooper and Arrelious Benn.
Update: It's confirmed that Maclin has a torn ACL and he will miss the entire season.
