PHILADELPHIA — Eagles wide receiver Jeremy Maclin won't play at Arizona on Sunday because of a hip injury.

Coach Andy Reid ruled Maclin and left tackle King Dunlap out for the matchup of 2-0 teams. Dunlap injured his hamstring in last Sunday's win over Baltimore. Maclin was hurt in the season opener and aggravated the injury throwing a block against the Ravens.

"Jeremy is a good football player," Reid said Friday in quotes provided by the team. "But the other guys have practiced all week and they're ready to go. I expect them to step in and play well."

Demetress Bell will start in Dunlap's place. Rookie Damaris Johnson is expected to take Maclin's spot.

Maclin has eight catches for 119 yards and two touchdowns.
