Maclin active despite ankle injury, no practice

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.

    From last week crying like a baby to possibly playing today? What a drama queen.

    High ankle sprains (had one) are extremely painful, and feel like something far worse than they are. He wasn’t crying due to the pain, he was crying because he though he had major structural damage and that his playoffs were over. No shame in dedicating your whole life to something and shedding a tear when you think something goes horribly wrong.

    Good, as a patriot fan I want all the chiefs to play and be healthy. Makes for an exciting game. Remember all those close games we have during the playoffs that makes us have anxiety and heart attacks? Get ready for another today fellow Patriot fans.

    Hope he’s able to contribute. The game is always more enjoyable when the best players take the field.

    Just because Maclin is active doesn’t mean he’s going to play much or at all.

    I knew he would play this is the most important game the Chiefs have had all season.
