Friday was Jeremy Maclin's 24th birthday. It didn't have to include anything special to mark a huge improvement over his 23rd. May 11, 2011, was when Maclin learned the results of tests done after the Eagles wideout couldn't quite shake an undetermined illness earlier in the spring. The tests showed inflamed lymph nodes. Doctors thought Maclin might have lymphoma. He had been unable to eat, just wanted to sleep, he said.
