Maclin (groin) secured one of three targets for 16 yards in Thursday's 21-13 win over the Raiders. The veteran made a rather quiet return from his month-long absence due to a groin injury, but was able to at least escape the contest without setbacks. While he's been sidelined, rookie Tyreek Hill has emerged as a highly viable option for QB Alex Smith, while Travis Kelce has also taken advantage by stringing together four straight 100-yard performances. However, Maclin undoubtedly still has Smith's trust, and with his first game back now under his belt, he'll likely figure in for a bigger role in a Week 15 tilt against the Titans.
Maclin (groin) does not carry an injury designation for Thursday night's game against the Raiders. After being listed as limited Monday, Maclin's participation level was marked full both Tuesday and Wednesday, which sets the stage for his return to action Thursday night. The veteran wideout, who last suited up in Week 9, figures to reclaim his starting role out of the gate, though it remains to be seen if his snaps will be limited at all in Week 14. In his absence, fellow wideout Tyreek Hill has made a case to remain a key cog in the Chiefs' passing attack, while TE Travis Kelce is coming off back-to-back eight-catch efforts.
Maclin (groin) completed a full practice Tuesday. As intimated by head coach Andy Reid, the Chiefs will take a wait-and-see approach with Maclin, per James Palmer of the NFL Network. The best indication that Maclin will suit up Thursday against the Raiders would be the lack of a designation on Wednesday's injury report, which seems like a safe bet after an uninhibited practice session Tuesday. In the end, expect clarification regarding his availability by Thursday's 8:25 PM ET kickoff.
Maclin (groin) will be a full participant in Tuesday's practice, James Palmer of the NFL Network reports. Head coach Andy Reid did not comment on Maclin's status for Thursday's matchup with the Raiders other than saying "we'll see," and a final call on Maclin's availability for Week 14 is not likely to be made for another day or two. However, if he is able to practice fully Tuesday and avoid any setbacks, that would put him on track to play this week for the first time since Week 9. The Chiefs will provide an official update on Maclin's status when they release their injury report following Tuesday's session.
Maclin (groin) was limited in Monday's practice, BJ Kissel of the Chiefs' official site reports. The Chiefs only held a walkthrough practice Monday, so Maclin's level of participation is merely a projection. His involvement in Tuesday's session will hopefully provide further insight towards his potential availability for Thursday's game against the Raiders.
