Super Bowl LVIII Injury Report Released: No Surprises, Chiefs and 49ers Can Move Forward with Their Stars in Intact.

Joe Thuney ruled out with pectoral issue for Super Bowl 2024; Jerick McKinnon’s status still uncertain

As the Super Bowl LVIII injury report was released, both the San Francisco 49ers and Kansas City Chiefs can breathe a sigh of relief. While there were some concerns on their respective sides, the injuries are not as severe as they could have been.

For the Chiefs, Charles Omenihu is still out on the defensive line after tearing his ACL during the AFC championship game. Key offensive lineman Joe Thuney will also be ruled out for Sunday’s game with a pectoral issue. However, Rashee Rice has been listed as a limited participant following treatment for an ankle injury, but was deemed a full go for the game on Friday.

On the other hand, Jerick McKinnon, a running back for the Chiefs, has been activated from injured reserve and is expected to be a game-time decision. He has not played since Week 15. For the 49ers, George Kittle and Arik Armstead fully participated in Friday’s practice and were given no injury designation after being limited earlier in the week. Head coach Kyle Shanahan is not worried about their status and they will play in the Super Bowl.

The Super Bowl will take place at Allegiant Stadium on Sunday at 6:30 p.m. ET, and it will air on CBS and Paramount+.
