    The sentence above is from an article in the Rheinischer Merkur, that I'm currently translating. I believe the definition I've found in Duden is adequate.

    Not supported. 'Im Spiel sein' is merely a figurative way of saying 'this has something to do with it' and thus is not a 'proper' translation of 'to be involved'.
