Maclin collected four passes on five targets for 53 yards in Sunday's regular-season finale against the Chargers.

EDGE Analysis

Maclin's sophomore campaign with the Chiefs hasn't come close to matching his first, having nabbed just 44 passes in total on 76 targets versus 87 catches for 1,088 yards a year ago. He also found pay dirt just twice on the season, well off his 2015 pace when he reached the end zone eight times. He should lead the receiving corps in snaps in the postseason and could be a buy-low candidate in drafts next season.

Maclin caught just three passes on four targets for nine yards in Saturday's win over the Broncos.

EDGE Analysis

Maclin saw the field the most among all Chiefs receivers, but the collective group didn't do much outside of Tyreek Hill out of the backfield. The veteran pass-catcher hasn't done much since returning from a groin injury, but did notch six grabs last week against the Titans. The team closes the regular season at San Diego in Week 17, providing Maclin with a chance to get things rolling before the playoffs.

Maclin caught six of eight targets for 82 yards in Sunday's 19-17 loss to the Titans.

EDGE Analysis

Maclin led the Chiefs in targets, catches and yards. He hadn't topped 80 yards in a game all season coming in, as the Chiefs' offensive formula of short passes and runs doesn't call for much involvement from the wide receivers. Tyreek Hill has supplanted Maclin as the wide receiver to own in Kansas City thanks to his impact as a runner and on special teams.

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.
