News: Coach Chip Kelly said Maclin looks "fantastic" thus far through training camp, reports.
Impact: Nick Foles offered a similar sentiment. Maclin's ACL tear occurred on July 27 of 2013, so he just passed the one-year mark in his recovery, and by all accounts, things are going as well as anyone could hope. When you pair these optimistic reports with the fact that he's still young -- he just turned 26 in May -- you'll find plenty of reason to believe he'll be at or near 100 percent before the season's start. With DeSean Jackson no longer around to vie for targets, Maclin looks like a high-upside WR2 in most formats.

News: Logan was held out of Sunday's practice with a tight hamstring, Tim McManus of 97.5 The Fanatic reports.
Impact: Apparently Logan's absence was just precautionary, meaning he could have played through the injury if the Eagles had a game Sunday. Logan's health is still worth monitoring moving forward.

News: Johnson was arrested early Monday after an altercation in Arizona, reports.
Impact: The arrest apparently stemmed from an altercation involving a police officer outside a bar early Monday morning. Until the details are sorted out, Johnson won't face any discipline from the Eagles or the league, but a fine or possible suspension could be in his future. The Eagles' organization issued the following statement: "We are disappointed to learn of the arrest of Keelan Johnson this weekend in Arizona. We are still trying to learn all of the facts that led to his arrest. At this point it is a pending legal matter, and therefore, we will have no further comment." Johnson appeared in two games for Philadelphia last season and will battle for a spot at safety during training camp.
