Jeremy Maclin talks: Test results not cancer

Maclin has been cleared to resume football activities after a cancer scare.

Mystery solved.

Eagles receiver Jeremy Maclin broke his silence yesterday and told FOX-Sports.com that he is fine and ready to get back on the football field.

Maclin was being tested for lymphoma, a form of cancer, but the final test  result came back negative.
The Eagles confirmed that he has been cleared to return to football activity. The team is confident he’ll be ready for the opener.

“I was tested for everything and every single test came back negative,” Maclin told Jay Glazer over at FOXSports.com. “I don’t have mono, I don’t have AIDS, leukemia, all the things people were guessing on, there was nothing. I was being tested for lymphoma and thank God everything has come back negative.”

Maclin began showing bizarre symptoms back in February and March, including rapid weight loss, a lack of energy and iron anemia. Last week, doctors removed lymph nodes from his abdomen. Maclin said he’ll have to wait to heal from that procedure before he can go full speed.

“It was all caused by an inflammatory virus, something that just runs its course through your body or you can treat with medicine,” Maclin told FOX-Sports.com. “I didn’t need medicine. It’s just something I had to deal with.”
