Jeremy Maclin: I haven't lost a step

7/25/2014

One year removed from a torn ACL, Jeremy Maclin said he feels healthy.

He has maintained that stance for weeks.

Not even a brief scare during organized team activities (OTAs) deterred his progress. Maclin was on the ground and looked to be injured, but it was nothing serious.

Crisis averted.

"You can't think like that, because the minute you go out there timid, that's when something bad happens," Maclin told the Philadelphia Inquirer. "I go out there and push myself. I feel good, I don't feel I lost a step, and I'm getting in and out of breaks well."

Maclin, who recently signed a one-year contract to remain with the Philadelphia Eagles, enters the season with 258 receptions, the most of any wide receiver on the active roster.

Maclin is also likely going to be the No. 1 wide receiver in 2014.

"You just have to have faith in the whole process and with everything that's come along with it, which I have,” Maclin told the Inquirer. “It's been going good."

While Maclin sat out all of last season, he doesn’t seem too far behind.

“I really don't see anything different from when he was feeling good,” wide receivers coach Bob Bicknell told the Inquirer. “He's done everything we asked him to do, from the standpoint of being here every day.”
