Chiefs receiver Jeremy Maclin wants to play today at New England, but he won’t know until pregame warmups whether he can go.
Jeff Darlington of NFL Network reports that it will be an uphill battle for Maclin, who is still iffy and needs to test his ankle today.
It’s possible the Chiefs would activate Maclin as a decoy, in the hopes that his presence can open things up elsewhere on the field.
If the Chiefs have to play without Maclin, it would be a big loss. During the regular season he led the team with 87 catches for 1,088 yards and eight touchdowns; no other wide receiver on the roster even had half that production in any statistical category.
