Eagles WR Jeremy Maclin hasn’t practiced this season while he’s dealt with a mysterious illness that he hasn’t wanted to talk about publicly. He’s returned to St. Louis for tests, and it’s been proven that he doesn’t have cancer.

But good news today, as Andy Reid told the media, including the Philadelphia Daily News that Maclin has returned to the team. Now, he’ll spend the next week or so working to get back in shape before he returns to practice.

Assuming that Maclin is ready to go early in the regular season -- and Reid says there's no doubt Maclin will be prepared to play in the season opener -- the Eagles WR corps of DeSean Jackson, Maclin, Steve Smith and Jason Avant will be a tough one for opposing defenses to stop. But now it seems that Maclin is getting healthy, and really, that’s the most important news of all.
