Jeremy Maclin, Other Key Players Return to Practice Wednesday

Chiefs coach Andy Reid provided injury updates on Maclin, Dee Ford, Dontari Poe and others on Wednesday afternoon

Wide receiver Jeremy Maclin, linebacker Dee Ford and cornerback Steve Nelson all returned to practice on Wednesday after missing last week's game against the Denver Broncos.

"They're just testing things out. We're going to gradually see how they feel," Chiefs head coach Andy Reid said. "They'll be out there moving around a little bit just to see how they feel."

Jeremy Maclin

Maclin returned to practice on Wednesday after missing the last three games with a groin strain.

Maclin left early in the first quarter four weeks ago against the Jacksonville Jaguars and has been sidelined ever since.

"He's making progress, it's just a matter of back spasms and calming those down a little bit," Reid said.

Jaye Howard

Defensive tackle Jaye Howard did not practice as he continues to deal with a hip injury.
