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

Jason Avant, Jeremy Maclin 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.”

    Maybe he’s pregnant.

    Great news!

    Can you catch Andre?

    hope all is well we need you mac

  5. cigarettej0nes says: Aug 15, 2011 3:01 PM

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

  6. seattlesuperchronic says: Aug 15, 2011 3:04 PM

    I hope it’s nothing serious.

  7. orakpownd says: Aug 15, 2011 3:05 PM

    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.

  8. TJ says: Aug 15, 2011 3:05 PM

    Derek Anderson says it’s fine. It’s fine. It’s fine. It’s fine. It’s fine.

  9. ahostiletakeover says: Aug 15, 2011 3:05 PM

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

  10. cigarettej0nes says: Aug 15, 2011 3:06 PM

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

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

  11. cigarettej0nes says: Aug 15, 2011 3:07 PM

    Alex Henery…LOL…beasts !

  12. scoops1 says: Aug 15, 2011 3:07 PM

    maybe this is something to CLAP about

  13. dirtybird70 says: Aug 15, 2011 3:07 PM

    I hope Vick didn’t try to electrocute or drown him. I think we can safely rule out shooting him in the head.

  14. jsrdc says: Aug 15, 2011 3:08 PM

    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.

  15. touchdownsyndrome says: Aug 15, 2011 3:09 PM

    Waiting for that fateful phone call from your doc is the absolute worst… I think everyone is pulling for this kid.

  16. dgreenfi says: Aug 15, 2011 3:11 PM

    Well giants fans… looks like you can have Sinorice Moss back.

  17. dawkphan says: Aug 15, 2011 3:15 PM

    I am glad to hear that it is good news. Just get better J Mac. we can wait.

  18. tdem232wi says: Aug 15, 2011 3:15 PM

    Was he perhaps on that Delta flight 5121 – the one that had the bat?

  19. eaglesfootballfan says: Aug 15, 2011 3:16 PM

    Best Wishes to Maclin and his family. As an Eagles Fan, I hope it is good news.

  20. jacksaysfu says: Aug 15, 2011 3:16 PM

    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.

  21. macjacmccoy says: Aug 15, 2011 3:16 PM

    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.

  22. urlacher2000 says: Aug 15, 2011 3:16 PM

    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.

  23. darthsat says: Aug 15, 2011 3:18 PM

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

  24. birdobeamen says: Aug 15, 2011 3:19 PM

    The Young Gunz are getting ready to get back to WORK.

  25. egls7 says: Aug 15, 2011 3:19 PM

    @Alansaysyo

    As an eagles fan, I gotta admit, your comment was hilarious

  26. awinsawin says: Aug 15, 2011 3:20 PM

    Wow training camp at lehigh ends tomorrow. Coincidence?

  27. mjs2012 says: Aug 15, 2011 3:22 PM

    When my wife says “It’s fine”, I know I’m in hot water.

  28. savocabol1 says: Aug 15, 2011 3:23 PM

    My guess is an STD or a staph infection.

  29. pwillie52 says: Aug 15, 2011 3:26 PM

    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??

  30. lbcoach34 says: Aug 15, 2011 3:27 PM

    HIPPA

  31. fillyfan9988 says: Aug 15, 2011 3:29 PM

    It’s an obvious case of Bad Bird Seed.

  32. pacash80 says: Aug 15, 2011 3:31 PM

    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.

  33. seabreezes51 says: Aug 15, 2011 3:33 PM

    It sounds like good news is coming.
    I don’t want to see anything derail this season.

  34. buckhuckster says: Aug 15, 2011 3:33 PM

    As long as he didn’t take advice from his quarterback and checked in as “Ron Mexico”, he should fine.

  35. terrellblowens says: Aug 15, 2011 3:34 PM

    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.

  36. edukator4 says: Aug 15, 2011 3:35 PM

    hes on the same team as ron mexico. its gotta be a case of the herpes

  37. ticalcaldwell says: Aug 15, 2011 3:36 PM

    Seriously…Is this guy that important…wow

  38. hus10188 says: Aug 15, 2011 3:38 PM

    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

  39. gottawoodley says: Aug 15, 2011 3:47 PM

    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!

  40. kaf39 says: Aug 15, 2011 4:04 PM

    Can’t wait to have him back!

    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.

  42. orakpownd says: Aug 15, 2011 4:40 PM

    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.

  43. melonnhead says: Aug 15, 2011 4:48 PM

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

  44. melonnhead says: Aug 15, 2011 4:51 PM

    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.

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

  46. hobartbaker says: Aug 15, 2011 5:34 PM

    “Nice cut, bruh.”.

    “You too, man.”.

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

    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.

  48. gobs56 says: Aug 15, 2011 5:43 PM

    Passes arent the only thing he caught from Vick… The gift that keeps on giving!

  49. FinFan68 says: Aug 15, 2011 5:54 PM

    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.

  50. gobs56 says: Aug 15, 2011 6:46 PM

    Money shot! From Vick…

    Viral infection of the eye! Makes it real hard to practice when you cannot see…

  51. pjxii says: Aug 15, 2011 7:37 PM

    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!

  53. raijinnokumo says: Aug 15, 2011 8:51 PM

    The biggest thing Maclin suffers from is a fear of contact: fear-of-tackleitis.

  54. lordstanleystan says: Aug 15, 2011 11:59 PM

    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…

  55. born2flyeagles2588 says: Aug 16, 2011 9:39 AM

    Did we need 1 last year? Go 8-8 and impress me.

  56. hookset12 says: Aug 16, 2011 9:55 PM

    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
