Maclin (groin) returned to practice Thursday, BJ Kissel of Chiefs.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Maclin was held out of action Wednesday, but was back with his teammates on the practice field the following day, suggesting any ailment wasn't overly serious. That being said, it wouldn't be surprising to see the Chiefs hold him out of Saturday's preseason matchup in Los Angeles as a precaution.

Maclin is considered day-to-day with a groin injury, BJ Kissel of Chiefs.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

The injury presumably clouds Maclin's status for Saturday's preseason game against the Rams, though for now this doesn't sound like something that's expected to linger. Maclin remains entrenched as the Chiefs' No. 1 wideout, while Albert Wilson is listed as the team's other starter at the position, with Chris Conley and Frankie Hammond listed as second-teamers and the likes of rookie Tyreek Hill, Rod Streater and De'Anthony Thomas also in the mix.

Maclin hauled in his lone target for 20 yards in Saturday's preseason opener against the Seahawks.

EDGE Analysis

Maclin should once again emerge as Alex Smith's top wide receiver after totaling 1,088 yards and eight scores in his first season with the Chiefs. Expect the 28-year-old to be eased in this preseason due to his defined role.

Maclin collided with teammate Steven Nelson during a 1-on-1 drill in Wednesday's practice and stayed on the ground in pain for a while but eventually stood up and rejoined practice for 11-on-11 drills, the Kansas City Star reports.

EDGE Analysis

Fortunately, it appears nothing serious came of the injury, but Maclin's status should be monitored in the next couple days to ensure nothing surfaces. Barring a major injury, the star wideout should be fine for the start of the regular season.

Maclin was removed from Thursday's practice due to a minor ankle injury, Kansas City Star reports. "He just tweaked his ankle a little bit," head coach Andy Reid said. "He's OK. No problem."

EDGE Analysis

After kicking off OTAs on Tuesday, the Chiefs were unable to emerge from the week without an ailment afflicting one of their offensive mainstays. For what it's worth, Maclin was able to walk off the field without assistance, so Reid's lack of concern is likely warranted. Nevertheless, Maclin did suffer a high right-ankle sprain in January's wild-card win against the Texans, yet still played in the divisional round against the Patriots, meaning his progress through the current issue will be of interest as the offseason program continues.

Maclin (ankle) secured two of three targets for 23 yards in Saturday's 27-20 divisional round loss to the Patriots.

EDGE Analysis

The seven-year veteran was able to play despite being considered highly questionable all week long, but was not much of a factor. Maclin was heavily out-targeted by fellow wideouts Albert Wilson and Chris Conley, as well as by tight end Travis Kelce. Although the season concluded for him in less than ideal fashion, Maclin proved to be an outstanding free-agent acquisition in the 2015 campaign. He managed a career-high in receptions (87), while posting the second-best totals of his career in yardage and touchdown catches.

Maclin (ankle) is active for Saturday's divisional round game at New England, BJ Kissel of the Chiefs' official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

Emerging from wild-card weekend with a high ankle sprain, Maclin was unable to fit in any practice reps this week, as the training room was his domain. Although he's been deemed active, his potential workload is to be determined, which could place more of the receiving burden on the likes of Travis Kelce (groin), Albert Wilson (hamstring), and Chris Conley.

Maclin (ankle) faces an "uphill battle" to play in Saturday's game against the Patriots, NFL.com's Jeff Darlinton reports.

EDGE Analysis

Officially Maclin is a game-time decision, but from the sound of things, owners in daily leagues would be wise to look elsewhere at wide receiver. He led the team with 1,088 receiving yards and eight touchdowns off a career-high 87 catches this year, so if he cannot play, there will be a big hole at wide receiver for the Chiefs to fill. Albert Wilson and rookie Chris Conley should see plenty of targets Saturday against the Patriots if Maclin is ruled out.

Maclin (ankle) is listed as questionable for Saturday's playoff game against the Patriots.

EDGE Analysis

Per the Kansas City Star, the status of the wideout -- who is dealing with what has been described a "mild" high ankle sprain -- is viewed as a game-time decision in advance of Saturday's 4:35 ET kickoff.

Maclin (ankle) was listed as a non-participant at Thursday's practice.

EDGE Analysis

While Maclin was able to do a little bit early in practice, he didn't participate in the team portion of the session. As Saturday's game against the Patriots approaches, the wideout's status is cloudy and could well turn into a game-time decision.
