Maclin (ankle) secured two of three targets for 23 yards in Saturday's 27-20 divisional round loss to the Patriots. The seven-year veteran was able to play despite being considered highly questionable all week long, but was not much of a factor. Maclin was heavily out-targeted by fellow wideouts Albert Wilson and Chris Conley, as well as by tight end Travis Kelce. Although the season concluded for him in less than ideal fashion, Maclin proved to be an outstanding free-agent acquisition in the 2015 campaign. He managed a career-high in receptions (87), while posting the second-best totals of his career in yardage and touchdown catches.
Maclin (ankle) is active for Saturday's divisional round game at New England, BJ Kissel of the Chiefs' official site reports. Emerging from wild-card weekend with a high ankle sprain, Maclin was unable to fit in any practice reps this week, as the training room was his domain. Although he's been deemed active, his potential workload is to be determined, which could place more of the receiving burden on the likes of Travis Kelce (groin), Albert Wilson (hamstring), and Chris Conley.
Maclin (ankle) faces an "uphill battle" to play in Saturday's game against the Patriots, NFL.com's Jeff Darlinton reports. Officially Maclin is a game-time decision, but from the sound of things, owners in daily leagues would be wise to look elsewhere at wide receiver. He led the team with 1,088 receiving yards and eight touchdowns off a career-high 87 catches this year, so if he cannot play, there will be a big hole at wide receiver for the Chiefs to fill. Albert Wilson and rookie Chris Conley should see plenty of targets Saturday against the Patriots if Maclin is ruled out.
Maclin (ankle) is listed as questionable for Saturday's playoff game against the Patriots. Per the Kansas City Star, the status of the wideout -- who is dealing with what has been described a "mild" high ankle sprain -- is viewed as a game-time decision in advance of Saturday's 4:35 ET kickoff.
Maclin (ankle) was listed as a non-participant at Thursday's practice. While Maclin was able to do a little bit early in practice, he didn't participate in the team portion of the session. As Saturday's game against the Patriots approaches, the wideout's status is cloudy and could well turn into a game-time decision.
