Jeremy Maclin's injury update: MRI coming after Chiefs say knee strain

New, comments

Kansas City Chiefs coach Andy Reid said after the game that WR Jeremy Maclin had a knee strain and that they would learn more with an MRI.

The speculation among plenty of people is that this is a serious knee injury for Maclin. We're thinking that because cameras showed Maclin emotional on the sideline after talking with doctors. And the doctors can often tell a serious injury with a physical examination on the field. So put two and two together...

We still hold out hope that it's something else that's not serious.

That sounds promising but these two tweets from a former NFL team doctor do not.

The Chiefs said Phillip Gaines had a knee strain after he was injured in Week 3. And then a day later it was announced he tore his ACL. So we just don't know.

Andy Reid will talk to the media on Sunday. We don't know if he'll have any more information on Maclin. I wouldn't be surprised if he didn't have any updates on Sunday. We should know more soon enough though.
