An MRI exam revealed a slight injury to the tendon in the ankle, school spokesman Chad Moller said Monday. Maclin is probable for Saturday's game against Southeast Missouri State.
Maclin, a sophomore who had a 99-yard kickoff return and 234 yards in all-purpose yards for the No. 6 Tigers, is expected to try to practice on Tuesday.
Maclin was injured away from the play early in the fourth quarter, pulling up after taking a few steps on a pass pattern. He covered his face with a towel while being carted off the field from the Missouri sideline, but returned a few minutes later with crutches and his foot wrapped in ice.
Maclin missed the 2006 season with a knee injury.
