Chiefs coach Andy Reid called Jeremy Maclin’s high-ankle sprain as “mild” when he spoke to the media on Tuesday.
Maclin suffered the injury during the Chiefs’ shutout of the Texans in the Wild Card round last weekend. Reid believes Maclin could practice later in the week, which would obviously be a positive sign for the Chiefs’ offense ahead of Saturday’s matchup with the Patriots.
According to oddsmakers from online sports book BetDSI, Kansas City remains a 5-point road underdog versus New England for this weekend’s 4:35PM ET kickoff. As for the total, it opened at 44.5 before dropping to 42 points.
In his first season with the Chiefs, Maclin caught 87 passes for 1,088 yards and eight touchdowns in 15 games.
