Chiefs injury report: Jeremy Maclin, Mike DeVito still out


The Kansas City Chiefs are trying to get a win for the second time this season come Sunday against the Pittsburgh Steelers, but they might be doing so shorthanded.

On Thursday, the team practiced for the second day this week, and there are many notable names on the report. Wide receiver Jeremy Maclin and defensive end Mike DeVito both missed practice in each of the past two days, still trying to recover from concussions they sustained against the Minnesota Vikings.

Linebacker Ramik Wilson has also not been able to practice, dealing with both knee and ankle problems. If Wilson is not able to play, look for Derrick Johnson and Josh Mauga to be starting alongside each other once again.

On the positive side, outside linebacker Justin Houston is a full participant again, meaning he will certainly be playing against Pittsburgh. Nose tackle Dontari Poe was limited on Thursday, giving us the hope that he could be back on the field after missing last week’s game.

Outside linebacker Tamba Hali is also limited with a knee injury, one day after missing practice. Alex Smith is also listed on the injury report with a right thumb ailment, but he has practiced fully each of the two days.
