“Gag order” on Jeremy Maclin’s status ends Tuesday

AP

We should finally get clarity regarding Eagles receiver Jeremy Maclin on Tuesday.

Philadelphia hasn’t said what’s wrong with Maclin, who has been bothered by some sort of viral illness since March.  He hasn’t practiced at training camp and left the team last week for more testing.

His brother spoke to the Sporting News Monday, saying everything would be cleared up in another 24 hours.

“We definitely will have some news tomorrow,” Andre Maclin said. “That’s when we find out exactly what’s going on and when [the Maclin camp] will address it and talk.”

Andre Maclin seemed to hint it could be good news.  He said he was confident Jeremy would play for the Eagles this year.

“They kind of have us on a gag order until tomorrow. . . . But he’s fine, he’s fine. That much I can say.”

  1. Maclin is a beast, can’t wait to have him back with DeSean Jackson, Jason “Hands” Avant, and newly acquired Steve Smith !!!

  2. Definitely not an Eagles fan…but he seems like a good kid and I am glad that it seems to not be anything detrimental and he can put his gift on the field.

  3. Off the top of my head, I can’t think of very much good news in any situation that requires a “gag order”…

  4. VICK, Maclin, Jackson, Smith, Avant, McCoy, Brown, Celek !

    Asomugha, Samuel, Rodgers-Cromartie, Trent Cole, Juqua Parker, Jason Babin, Cullen Jenkins, Casey Matthews !

  5. Good to hear. I hope he can recover and play this season. Good young WR with a bright future – all this from a Cowboy fan, btw.

    And I simply don’t want any excuses from Eagle fans if the Cowboys beat them this year.

  6. Maclin ,Jackson ,Smith , Avant, Cooper, Celek , Mccoy, Vick on Offense
    Asomugha, Samuel, Rodgers-Cromartie, Cole, Babin, Jenkins on Defense

    No wonder your all hating on us. I’ve been going to training camp every year since 2003 and this team is by FAR the most talented team Philly has ever assembled. The 04′ team couldn’t hold this teams jock strap. That’s why EVERYONE hates on us, you haters make me smile. We we’re division champs before this off season , so hate on ladies, its gonna be a long season for you.

  7. Mind Games people Mind Games. They know whats been up with him for a while and just didnt want to tell everyone for the same reason teams dont report injuries, to throw off the competition. I have a feeling his visit to St Louis was to get a check up from the doctor to see if hes finally able to return to the field and not for a diagnosis. I think that because the Eagles never go out on a limb when it comes to predicting how something will turn out. So I dont think they would have ever said that they believe Maclin would be ready for week 1 if they didnt already know what was going on with him. That just goes against everything the Eagles front office is. They are the most secretive pro sports time I have ever witnessed. Its always we’ll see how that goes, we dont know, we’ll no more at a later date, I dont want to get into all of that.

    They wouldnt even admit Desean was going to be at camp when he was already at Lehigh in the building. So them saying he would be ready to go week 1 pretty much showed their hand weeks ago.

  8. This whole situation reminds me of the year Charles “Peanut” Tillman missed most of training camp for the Bears (2008?). When he finally returned…….we found out that his daughter had a heart transplant. The unfortunate things was all the rumors that were flying around during his time away. Sometimes when a player asks for privacy – – – the fans and media should grant it. Hope all is well for Maclin and his family.

  9. Hopefully some great news for this great young kid. Can’t wait to see this future stud wideout back on the field.

  10. No one has figured it out yet?

    It’s a Staph infection, I remember Josh Morgan got one a year or 2 ago and no one was saying what was wrong with him. I think the teams try to cover it up because it shows that they aren’t taking care of their facilities.

    Viral infection??

  11. Here’s to wishing Maclin the best for his future in life, not just football, regardless of whether the news turns out to be good or bad.

  12. They were probably just arranging a 1 hr special on ESPN where he would reveal the illness.

    Seriously though good to hear he’s probably alright. He’s a good complement to Jackson. Bigger and tougher and just stays quiet and makes plays. He knows how to get in the end zone. He’s one of the more unsung heroes on the Eagles offense along with Jason Avant.

  13. Not only do I hope Maclin is fine for the sake of compassion but also to stick it to Steve Smith.

    If they knew all along that Maclin was always going to be fine, then we can safely say their signing of Steve Smith was clearly to spite the Giants. LOL!

    If Maclin’s healthy and ready to go week 1, Steve Smith looks real dumb, while we’re struggling for a decent slot WR (giants), he leaves to join a team that will leave him with about 10-20recs the whole year. Factoring his lack of knowledge of the system and injury, I mean he’s fourth WR at best for those guys.

    McCoy still don’t even like you now you on the eagles….LOL, you think that dude would come to the Giants if he was a free agent…..hell no, he understands there’s a line you don’t cross.

    Ask Shockey, Ask Tiki, you leave the Giants on bad terms, you’re future becomes a joke and the Giants go onto win a SB.

    Steve Smith……..u dummy!!!! HAAAAAA

  14. Not an eagles fan but Maclin and McCoy helped me win fantasy football last year when my roster was filled with a bunch of bums. Awesome player. get well. I am drafting you again this year!

    Typical loudmouth Philly fan. They’ve signed some impressive players, but they haven’t proven ANYTHING yet as a team. Quit acting like you’ve already won the Superbowl, because frankly none of you even know what that feels like.

  16. probably an STD or Immune system issue. which STD’s can affect. Simple blood test now….anybody remember having the giant metal qtip test……violated..it still haunts.

  17. Nothing wrong with this kid that a case of Valtrex can’t help. Just don’t let him bleed on you.

  18. Ask Shockey, Ask Tiki, you leave the Giants on bad terms, you’re future becomes a joke and the Giants go onto win a SB.

    Shockey won a Super Bowl after he left.

  19. I don’t know why, but Jason Avant’s face looks particularly awesome in that pic.

    As if we needed more objective proof that some people hate the Eagles no matter what they do or who they are, take a look at the “thumbs down” on your comments. It was +80/ -60 at last check. All you did was list the NAMES OF THE PLAYERS and you still got 60 people slamming you!

    It’s gonna be fun turning that hate into touchdowns.

  21. Are they sure it’s a medical issue. Seems a “gag order” is inappropriate when simply saying it is a private matter will suffice. Maybe there is more to the drama than appears.

  22. Jeremy Maclin seems to be a good guy, I hope everything works out well for him.
    That said, as an Eagles fan I hope he comes back soon. Otherwise Jason “Hey Mike, Throw It To Me And Hit Me Right In The Numbers Because I’m Wide Open in the Bears’ Endzone…Oopsies!” Avant will have to take on a more significant role. Oh yeah, that’s right, Andy Reid says he’s the best slot receiver in the league. Guess I shouldn’t worry after all.

    That would be a neat trick. Hurry along now, the flash mob is waiting on you. Don’t break curfew!

  24. All those signing and nothing to improve philly’s OL… Who is going pick up broke Vick when this is over? Paper champs.

    Heard The delay was they were trying to find out if Maclin has AIDS…

    Seriously…Is this guy that important…wow

    You sir, are a moron. Do you even watch football?

    Maclin is the #1B receiver on one of the most explosive offenses in the game today
