Mack Hollins missed practice today, and head coach Doug Pederson revealed it was due to a new injury suffered, not a setback of one of the previous injuries that kept him out for around 18 months.

Hollins had dealt with a long battle in getting over both a groin and hernia injury that kept him out for all of the 2018 season. Hollins was able to get on the field for the first few days of training camp and looked good when doing so, but now, there is a clear concern again with a new injury being suffered.

Pederson described the injury as a lower-body injury, and the team is going to be cautious with Hollins. Hollins was on the sideline for practice, and there hasn’t been word yet on what specific injury was suffered and how long it could keep him out.

Hollins has the upper-hand in claiming one of the final wide receiver spots, but staying healthy is the biggest factor as to whether he makes the team or not. If Hollins isn’t able to prove he can stay healthy, a chance opens up for players like Marken Michel, Greg Ward Jr, Charles Robinson, and Carlton Agudosi to make the roster. Pederson directly pointed to Ward Jr and Agudosi as two players who have had great offseason’s.

The team typically isn’t very open about injuries, especially when they’re suffered during training camp.
