Jeremy Maclin suffers knee injury, out for game

Chiefs wide receiver Jeremy Maclin suffered what appeared to be a serious knee injury and will not return to the game. Maclin’s knee appeared to buckle under him on the same play that J.J. Watt suffered an injury. He was carted to the locker room and ruled out for the remainder of the game. This injury is doubly scary as Maclin is no stranger to knee problems. In 2013, he tore...
