Chiefs receiver Jeremy Maclin did some light running and jogging during the portion of practice that was open to the media Thursday, but did not participate in the team portion of practice as he recovers from a high right ankle sprain.
“Maclin came out and did a little bit during the stretch period and that was about it,” Chiefs coach Andy Reid said.
Reid said Maclin will be a game-time decision for the Chiefs’ AFC Divisional playoff game Saturday at New England. He sustained the injury in the Chiefs’ 30-0 win over the Houston Texans in the AFC Wild Card round last Saturday.
Outside linebacker Justin Houston (knee) was a limited practice participant for the second straight day. Both he and outside linebacker Tamba Hali (knee/thumb), who did not practice this week, played in the Texans game.
Starting center Mitch Morse and starting right guard Laurent Duvernay-Tardif have not passed the league’s concussion protocol, putting their availability for Saturday’s game in doubt. Both players sat out the Texans game.
Running back Spencer Ware (sprained ankle) also practiced Thursday, albeit in a limited fashion, after sitting the day before.
