Maclin (groin) secured one of three targets for 16 yards in Thursday's 21-13 win over the Raiders.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran made a rather quiet return from his month-long absence due to a groin injury, but was able to at least escape the contest without setbacks. While he's been sidelined, rookie Tyreek Hill has emerged as a highly viable option for QB Alex Smith, while Travis Kelce has also taken advantage by stringing together four straight 100-yard performances. However, Maclin undoubtedly still has Smith's trust, and with his first game back now under his belt, he'll likely figure in for a bigger role in a Week 15 tilt against the Titans.

Maclin (groin) does not carry an injury designation for Thursday night's game against the Raiders.

EDGE Analysis

After being listed as limited Monday, Maclin's participation level was marked full both Tuesday and Wednesday, which sets the stage for his return to action Thursday night. The veteran wideout, who last suited up in Week 9, figures to reclaim his starting role out of the gate, though it remains to be seen if his snaps will be limited at all in Week 14. In his absence, fellow wideout Tyreek Hill has made a case to remain a key cog in the Chiefs' passing attack, while TE Travis Kelce is coming off back-to-back eight-catch efforts.

Maclin (groin) completed a full practice Tuesday.

EDGE Analysis

As intimated by head coach Andy Reid, the Chiefs will take a wait-and-see approach with Maclin, per James Palmer of the NFL Network. The best indication that Maclin will suit up Thursday against the Raiders would be the lack of a designation on Wednesday's injury report, which seems like a safe bet after an uninhibited practice session Tuesday. In the end, expect clarification regarding his availability by Thursday's 8:25 PM ET kickoff.

Maclin (groin) will be a full participant in Tuesday's practice, James Palmer of the NFL Network reports.

EDGE Analysis

Head coach Andy Reid did not comment on Maclin's status for Thursday's matchup with the Raiders other than saying "we'll see," and a final call on Maclin's availability for Week 14 is not likely to be made for another day or two. However, if he is able to practice fully Tuesday and avoid any setbacks, that would put him on track to play this week for the first time since Week 9. The Chiefs will provide an official update on Maclin's status when they release their injury report following Tuesday's session.

Maclin (groin) was limited in Monday's practice, BJ Kissel of the Chiefs' official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Chiefs only held a walkthrough practice Monday, so Maclin's level of participation is merely a projection. His involvement in Tuesday's session will hopefully provide further insight towards his potential availability for Thursday's game against the Raiders.

The Chiefs are optimistic about Maclin's (groin) chances of returning for Thursday's game against the Raiders, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports.

EDGE Analysis

Maclin has been sidelined by a groin problem since Week 9, but he appears to be edging closer to a return after being a limited participant in practice last week. Although the Chiefs only have a few practices before they're scheduled to play the Raiders this Thursday, the team seems encouraged by Maclin's recent progress. Whether that culminates in a return to game action remains to be seen, so Maclin's situation will have to continue to be tracked for further updates prior to Kansas City's early Week 14 kickoff.

Coach Andy Reid is unsure about Maclin's (groin) availability ahead of Thursday night's game against the Raiders, but says his condition is improving, BJ Kissel of Chiefs.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Maclin hasn't played since Week 9 due to a groin problem, but he at least returned as a limited practice participant last week. It remains to be seen whether he can build on that involvement as the Chiefs make the quick turnaround ahead of Thursday's pivotal AFC West clash, so his status will need to be monitored in the coming days. If Maclin is sidelined once again, Tyreek Hill and Albert Wilson could continue to enjoy expanded offensive roles.

Maclin (groin) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Falcons, BJ Kissel of Chiefs.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Maclin won't be making the trip to Atlanta despite being able to practice on a limited basis throughout the week. Tyreek Hill, coming off a three-touchdown performance, figures to be the main beneficiary in terms of added value with Maclin sidelined. Both Chris Conley and Albert Wilson also figure to see an increase in targets as well.

Maclin (groin) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Falcons.

EDGE Analysis

Maclin was able to practice in a limited fashion all week, which suggests that he should be a go this weekend, though in such a scenario it remains to be seen if he'd be up for a full workload in his first full game since Week 8.

Maclin (groin) remained limited at practice Thursday.

EDGE Analysis

Back-to-back limited practice sessions make a return to action for Maclin this weekend a plausible outcome, though we'll have to see how the Chiefs elect to list the wideout on Friday's final Week 13 injury report.
