Chiefs wide receiver Jeremy Maclin injured his right knee during the third quarter of Saturday’s AFC Wild Card Game against the Houston Texans.
Maclin left the game after hauling a 7-yard pass. Maclin was later carted off the field and did not return. Maclin leads the Chiefs in receptions (87), yards (1,088) and touchdowns (eight). His replacement was third-round rookie Chris Conley, who caught a 9-yard touchdown pass afterward.
The Star’s Vahe Gregorian reported after the game that Maclin was walking with a limp but declined to comment.
However, Maclin tweeted his thanks for all the kind thoughts people sent his way:
