Super Bowl LVIII Injury Report: Chiefs and 49ers Gear Up for Battle without Key Players


Feb 10, 2024
Joe Thuney ruled out of Super Bowl 2024 with pectoral issue; Jerick McKinnon’s status uncertain.

The Super Bowl LVIII injury report is not a major concern for either the San Francisco 49ers or the Kansas City Chiefs as they head into the weekend. For the Chiefs, Charles Omenihu will be absent from the defensive line due to a torn ACL sustained during the AFC championship game. Joe Thuney, who suffered a pectoral issue during the playoff game against the Buffalo Bills on January 21, will also miss Sunday’s game. Nick Allegretti will step in for Thuney. Wideout Rashee Rice was stepped on during Thursday’s practice but is expected to play with no issues. Jerick McKinnon, who has not played since Week 15, was activated from injured reserve on Saturday and will be a game-time decision.

On the other hand, George Kittle and Arik Armstead fully participated in Friday’s practice and are expected to play in the Super Bowl despite being limited earlier in the week. The game will take place at Allegiant Stadium on Sunday at 6:30 p.m. ET and can be watched on CBS or Paramount+. On the 49ers injury report, only RB Jerick McKinnon has a questionable status due to a groin injury while OL Prince Tega Wanogho is ruled out with a quad injury.
