Adam Schefter had some good information on Jeremy Maclin’s injury. The ESPN reporter tweeted this earlier in the week:
Chiefs optimistic that WR Jeremy Maclin, who has missed past 4 games due to groin injury, will return for Thursday vs. Raiders, per source.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) December 5, 2016
What do you know, he was spot on:
Andy Reid is "optimistic" about Jeremy Maclin playing on Sunday vs. Raiders. Said he'll be a full participant at practice today.— BJ Kissel (@ChiefsReporter) December 6, 2016
If he’s a full participant in practice today something would have to go very wrong for him not to play this weekend. In fact, it seemed like he was going to play last weekend but ultimately didn’t. Perhaps because the Chiefs knew they needed him in the biggest game of the year on Thursday night.
