Tuesday came and went without Jeremy Maclin or the Eagles providing any more clarity on Maclin’s situation, despite a Monday promise from Maclin’s brother that an answer was coming. And that is serving only to cause more speculation regarding Maclin’s condition.
Despite the rampant rumors, the word in the locker room is that Maclin suffers from mononucleosis and/or the lingering effects of it. Maclin disclosed in April that he lost 15 pounds in February with a “mono-like” illness.
G.M. Howie Roseman told 97.5 the Fanatic on Tuesday, via the Philadelphia Inquirer, that “[w]e totally anticipate Jeremy being part of our football team” and that “[w]e anticipate him being back here shortly.”
We continue to hope that’s the case. But we continue to be baffled by the lack of information regarding Maclin’s condition.
