Eagles WR Jeremy Maclin is day-to-day; RB Bryce Brown moves up depth chart

Couple of news bits about the E-A-G-L-E-S.
Head coach Andy Reid wouldn't shed much light on the status of Jeremy Maclin @jmac_18 and his hip on Monday. He just said Maclin probably won't practice Wednesday, but he still has a chance to play this weekend versus the Cardinals.
"I'd just tell you it's day-to-day," Reid said.
According to the Philadelphia Inquirer, Damaris Johnson and Mardy Gilyard are the only truly healthy wide receivers on the active roster.
Reid also confirmed that Dion Lewis @DionLewis28 was a healthy scratch in Week 2 because Bryce Brown @BryceBrown_34 and Chris Polk @1ChrisPolk "have earned the right" to move past him on the depth chart. Brown carried the ball three times for 7 yards while Polk played solely on special teams.

Fantasy Analysis:

Right now, it doesn't sound good for Maclin. He said after Sunday's win that this hip injury is worse than the one he sustained against the Browns in the season opener. Maclin didn't practice until Friday last week, so I don't expect anything more this week. He would be a risky start in Week 3 given that he was limited in this past game and caught just one pass, albeit a touchdown pass.
The Brown/Polk news is worthwhile for only LeSean McCoy @CutonDime25 owners. His workload is not at any risk, but Brown now looks like the handcuff. Lewis is completely off the fantasy radar at the moment.
