Jeremy Maclin will play vs. Raiders

Denny Medley-USA TODAY Sports

The growing sense of optimism around Jeremy Maclin's return was for good reason. He practiced today without any limitations or injury designation, meaning the Chiefs top wide receiver will play on Sunday.

Maclin has sat since Week 9 against the Jacksonville Jaguars with a groin injury. The Chiefs offense struggled significantly without Maclin in the line-up for the first couple games before picking up steam against the Falcons last week. The addition of Maclin comes at an ideal time on a short week in an divisional game against the Oakland Raiders on Thursday.

Elsewhere on the injury report, the Chiefs are healthier than they've been in weeks as only Kendall Reyes and Dontari Poe, both defensive linemen, are listed on the injury report. Both are listed as questionable.

Maclin has caught 30 passes for 376 yards and 2 touchdowns in 8 games this season.
