Jeremy Maclin, who was released by the Kansas City Chiefs earlier this offseason, says he played through last season with a groin injury.
Maclin told Adam Schefter on his Know Them From Adam podcast that he played most of 2016 with a torn groin.
"So I missed about four weeks there with the torn groin, and I came back and I was able to play, but I can't sit up here and tell you I was 100 percent," he said of his injury. "But I'm also not going to sit up here and make excuses, so at the end of the day, I didn't play as well as I could have last year. I think that's ultimately what happened."
Maclin finished last season with career worsts in receptions (44), yards (536) and touchdowns (2).
