KANSAS CITY, Mo. – The Chiefs released an injury report Monday night ahead of Thursday night’s game against the Denver Broncos.

Wide receiver Jeremy Maclin (back), safety Husain Abdullah (quad), outside linebacker Tamba Hali and rookie inside linebacker D.J. Alexander (hamstring) are listed as limited participants.

Maclin played on 57 of the Chiefs’ 70 offensive snaps (81 percent) in Week 1 against the Houston Texans, totaling five catches for 52 yards on seven targets.

The Chiefs list guard Jeff Allen (knee), wide receiver Jason Avant (hip), tackle Eric Fisher (ankle), tight end Demetrius Harris (foot), tight end Travis Kelce (hip), linebacker Josh Mauga (Achilles), defensive tackle Dontari Poe (back), wide receiver De’Anthony Thomas (calf), running back Charcandrick West (Achilles) and wide receiver Albert Wilson (shouder) as full participants.
