As the Eagles try to get through the loss of receiver Jeremy Maclin to a torn ACL and the distraction caused by the racial slur used by Riley Cooper they now have another hurdle to overcome.

The team announced Tuesday evening that receiver Arrelious Benn has torn his ACL.

Benn had been looking to compete for the starting spot vacated by Maclin but -- following the trend of his career -- he had been injured for much of training camp.
