Jeremy Maclin Says He Will "No Doubt" Be Ready For Week One

Now that Jeremy Maclin has been given a clean bill of health, he is ready to get back to work. He spoke to the media for the first time today since the revelation that he was dealing with a cancer scare all summer. The 23 year old says there is "no doubt" he will be ready for the start of the season.

The good thing is that even though he had this worry that there was a chance he had cancer in the back of his mind, he was still able to work out and stay in shape all summer. Actually, the fact that he felt better and better as the summer progressed made him feel more positive about what he was going through.

"Because I was feeling fine and working out. It felt like it wasn't that, but the doctors just weren't sure. That's why we had to have more and more tests. Normally when someone has that, you don't get better and the symptoms actually get worse until you receive treatment. That was one thing I had going in my favor."

Maclin also says that his offseason workouts with the team in South Jersey (no one seemed to do more work than he and Mike Kafka) will make it pretty easy to get back in synch.

"I don't think it'll take too long. I think if you give us a few practices together, we'll get back and used to each other. Working together last year and this offseason helped us, so I don't think it'll be too long."
