News: Maclin was removed from Thursday's practice due to a minor ankle injury, Kansas City Star reports. "He just tweaked his ankle a little bit," head coach Andy Reid said. "He's OK. No problem."
Impact: After kicking off OTAs on Tuesday, the Chiefs were unable to emerge from the week without an ailment afflicting one of their offensive mainstays. For what it's worth, Maclin was able to walk off the field without assistance, so Reid's lack of concern is likely warranted. Nevertheless, Maclin did suffer a high right-ankle sprain in January's wild-card win against the Texans, yet still played in the divisional round against the Patriots, meaning his progress through the current issue will be of interest as the offseason program continues.
