Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver Jeremy Maclin tore his right ACL during Saturday’s practice, the team announced.

According to multiple reports, the injury occurred during 7-on-7 drills. In the early part of camp, players are still practicing in no-contact drills without pads.

Maclin stayed on the ground for several minutes while the club’s medical staff attended to his lower leg.

After getting to his feet, Maclin had to be helped to a motorized cart.

Maclin thanked fans for their support on Twitter.

The oft-injured Maclin, entering the final season of his five-year rookie contract, has played an entire season just once in his career.

After catching a career-high 10 touchdown passes in 2010, Maclin has combined for just 12 scores over his past two campaigns. He had 69 receptions for 857 yards and seven TDs last season.

The Eagles are in their first training camp under new coach Chip Kelly.
