Jeremy Maclin went down during a non-contact drill in training camp last July and wound up tearing an ACL.
Fast forward one year and the veteran wide receiver for the Philadelphia Eagles is anxiously anticipating training camp in less than two weeks.
Let the season begin.
"I feel great and there is no holding back," Maclin told Philadelphiaeagles.com. "It's nothing I even think about. I've done my work and I'm continuing to work, so for me it's about going out and doing my job and being detailed and helping this team win games."
Maclin will enter the 2014 season ranked first in franchise history with 258 receptions.
"I felt comfortable in the offense before the injury and it hasn't been a problem picking it back up," Maclin told Philadelphiaeagles.com. "That's not an issue at all. I'm looking forward to training camp and getting into the season. I missed playing so much, being around the guys. The big thing is that I followed my rehab program and worked hard and got a lot of help, so to be out here is no surprise. I'm excited. I can't wait to get it going."
Neither can wide receivers coach Bob Bicknell.
"Jeremy is going to be a big part of what we do," Bicknell said. "He's jumped right in there and picked up the offense. Jeremy has worked extremely hard to get back on the field and that's just the way he is. The guy loves the game. It shows in his recovery."
