Chip Kelly: Jeremy Maclin Full Go At OTAs

Head coach Chip Kelly said on Thursday that wide receiver Jeremy Maclin has been full go during the first week of the Organized Team Activities. Maclin returned to action for the first time since suffering a season-ending knee injury in last year's Training Camp.

"Mac's doing fantastic," Kelly said.

Kelly added that wide receiver Arrelious Benn, linebacker Jason Phillips and new quarterback Mark Sanchez have also been unimpeded during the OTAs. Benn and Phillips were sidelined for all of 2013 with knee injuries. Sanchez did not play for the Jets last season due to a shoulder injury.

Thursday is the final day of the first week of OTAs. The Eagles return to action on Monday.

Here are some other key notes from Kelly's press conference. You can view it in its entirety above:
