Before the official inactive list was released, there was some confusion as to whether or not Maclin would be active for today’s game against the Bears. First, ESPN’s Adam Schefter tweeted that Maclin would be inactive.
Ravens’ WR Jeremy Maclin is inactive today vs Bears due to shoulder injury, per source.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) October 15, 2017
Following that, a tweet from Luke Jones of WNST.com stated that Maclin was out on the field running routes and catching passes.
For what it's worth, Maclin is still running routes and catching passes on the field. Inactives come out in the next 10 minutes. #Ravens— Luke Jones (@BaltimoreLuke) October 15, 2017
It makes sense that he could still run routes before a game because his injury isn’t a lower body injury. It is a shoulder injury. Unfortunately, Maclin would appear on the official inactive list.
This injury isn’t a new one for Maclin. In week two against the Cleveland Browns, Maclin suffered a stinger in his right shoulder. Maclin has been able to play the past few games, but he has seen his production drop.
In the first two games of the season, Maclin scored a touchdown. However, he hasn’t had a touchdown since Week 2, which is the game that he suffered the injury.
