FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) — Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Jeremy Maclin is active for the team’s AFC divisional-round playoff game against the New England Patriots after being questionable with a sprained ankle.

Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski (knee, back) and wide receivers Julian Edelman (broken foot) and Danny Amendola (knee) are also active for the Patriots on Saturday.

Also active is defensive end Chandler Jones (abdomen, toe), whose status was uncertain after he wandered over to a police station last Sunday, shirtless and disoriented, leaving his house reeking of burnt marijuana. Defensive end Rob Ninkovich (shin) and T Sebastian Vollmer (ankle) are also playing for New England.

Chiefs starting center Mitch Morse and right guard Laurent Duvernay-Tardif are inactive after being ruled out with concussions Friday.
