Chiefs wide receiver Jeremy Maclin is active for Saturday’s AFC divisional playoff game at New England.

Maclin did not practice all week and had been listed as questionable. His status for the game remained uncertain even as of Saturday morning.

Maclin was injured in last week’s win at Houston. The team initially feared a major injury, but after an MRI the team said Maclin had suffered a high ankle sprain.

Maclin was one of five players the Chiefs had listed as questionable. As expected, pass rushers Justin Houston and Tamba Hali are also active.

In the regular season Maclin led the Chiefs 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.
