Jeremy Maclin to return for Chiefs' tilt with Raiders

The Kansas City Chiefs will get their No. 1 receiver back on the field for Thursday's pivotal tilt versus the Oakland Raiders.

Jeremy Maclin was a full participant in practice again Wednesday and was not listed on the Chiefs' injury report. The receiver missed the past four games with a groin injury.

The Chiefs went 3-1 without Alex Smith's go-to target. Jitterbug Tyreek Hill stepped up in Maclin's place, providing a dangerous home-run threat.

Maclin's rep count bears tracking Thursday night. With Travis Kelce and Hill providing a spark though the passing game, the Chiefs could ease the veteran back into the rotation in an effort to avoid re-injury.

In the Chiefs' Week 6 win over the Raiders, Maclin caught three passes for 49 yards, including a 38-yarder, as Spencer Ware did most of the damage in Oakland on a mucky, wet field.

The Chiefs listed defensive linemen Dontari Poe (back) and Kendall Reyes (knee) as questionable.
