Take a deep breath, Kansas City Chiefs fans.

Star wide receiver Jeremy Maclin says he'll be fine after a hard fall on his hip last weekend. He's even expected to suit up against the Houston Texans in the AFC Wild Card round.

Jeremy Maclin insists he will play in the wild-card game, says "there's no way" he'd miss it.

Maclin had to be helped off the field after going up for a deep throw at Arrowhead Stadium in Week 17. He immediately left the game and underwent locker-room tests.

His team will need him back at full strength in Houston. It's the second time he'll face the staunch Texans defense.

The Chiefs scored 45 touchdown in 2015-16. Eight of them belonged to Maclin, including six scores in the team's final six games. He's only gaining steam now.
