Eagles rookie wideout Jeremy Maclin said he thinks he can run and cut as well as he ever did, as Maclin recovers from a plantar fascia tear that kept him out of last Sunday's win over San Francisco.
Maclin, absent since early in the Giants game the week before, said today he assumes he will resume his starting role this Sunday against the Broncos. The injury started out as plantar faciitis and developed into a tear, but Maclin said he doesn't worry about making it worse.
"It's already torn now. It is what it is," Maclin said. "Each person's different, depending on how they respond to it. It's not bad at all; obviously, there's something there, but if you can deal with it, you can deal with it."
Maclin said he's spending a lot of time in the training room, stretching his foot.
