The Kansas City Chiefs final injury report for New England Patriots week is out and we're no closer to figuring out whether WR Jeremy Maclin will play. The Chiefs WR is listed as questionable for the game, which is what we figured. He suffered a mild high ankle sprain last week and hasn't put in a practice this week. He's a veteran though and can play even without a full week of practice. We will find out about his status when the Chiefs inactives come out around 2 p.m. (Arrowhead Time) on Saturday.
Meanwhile, LBs Justin Houston and Tamba Hali are listed as questionable. I'm not as worried about either of them playing but more so their effectiveness. Houston didn't look to be full strength last week in Houston as he played with a brace on his knee, which he injured in Week 12. Tamba has been dealing with a knee issue all season but I would still expect him to play this weekend. He has been a part-time player lately so you could see him splitting reps again.
The Chiefs also list RB Spencer Ware as questionable, which would be a big deal if he didn't play. He has slowly turned into the Chiefs most productive running back and need him along with Charcandrick West to get the run game going. He was a full participant in the last practice so that's a good bet he will play.
The Chiefs list C Mitch Morse and G Laurent Duvernay-Tardif as OUT with concussions. The Chiefs are prepared to handle their absence with Zach Fulton at center and potentially Jah Reid at guard. Reid, who was a tackle earlier this season, did a pretty good job filling in at guard last week.
