Chiefs injury updates, odds for Super Bowl 58

G Joe Thuney (Pectoral - OUT)

After missing practice all week, Thuney has been ruled out for the Super Bowl on Sunday after sitting out since suffering that pectoral injury in the NFL Divisional round on Jan. 21.

Thuney is arguably the best pass-blocking guard in the NFL, but Patrick Mahomes and Co. navigated his absence in the AFC title game, albeit in a 17-point effort.

RB Jerick McKinnon (Groin - Limited)

How to betBest odds (Over)Best odds (Under)
Chiefs rushing yardsOver 103.5 (+100 via DraftKings)Under 109.5 (-115 via bet365)

Total players with rush attemptsOver 7.5 (-125 via DraftKings)Under 7.5 (+100 via DraftKings)

McKinnon hasn't played since Dec. 17 after suffering a groin injury that landed him on injured reserve, and Reid said during his press conference Tuesday that McKinnon had a "slim" chance to play on Sunday.

The veteran back did return to practice in a limited capacity this week, but it seems like the 31-year-old backup is a long shot to play in his second Super Bowl.

RB Isiah Pacheco (Toe / Ankle - Full)

Pacheco carried an injury designation into the AFC Championship, but he still logged a season-high 24 carries for the second time this postseason and extended his scoring streak to seven games ahead of Super Bowl 58.

He only rushed for 68 yards in that win two weeks ago, his fewest since Week 15, but his full participation in practice suggests he'll be good to go against the 49ers.

We discuss Pacheco's outlook on Sunday in further detail in our Super Bowl rushing props and Super Bowl game leader predictions.

DT Chris Jones (Quad - Full)

Jones' injury has been a potential point of concern for Chiefs fans after the star defensive tackle was listed as a limited participant in practice last week.

He was a full participant in practice this week, though, and he shrugged off any concerns about his quad injury earlier in the week. Assuming he plays Sunday, he'll have a chance for a big day against an exploitable 49ers offensive line.

The Kansas City defensive star is among the featured players in our Super Bowl sacks odds.

WR Rashee Rice (Ankles - Limited)

The biggest surprise from Thursday's injury report was seeing Rice, who was a full participant in Wednesday's practice, listed as a limited participant just three days before Super Bowl 58.

He was a full participant on Friday, though, and he doesn't carry an injury designation into Sunday's game, which would mark the first Super Bowl appearance for the Chiefs rookie.

WR Skyy Moore (Knee - Full)

How to betBest odds (Over)Best odds (Under)
Total Chiefs with receptionsOver 7.5 (-115 via bet365)Under 7.5 (-115 via bet365)
Total players with receptionsOver 13.5 (+105 via DraftKings)Under 13.5 (+115 via BetMGM)

It's been nearly two months since we last saw Moore on the field, but the Chiefs activated the second-year wideout off injured reserve on Wednesday ahead of his full participation in practice this week.

His teammate, Kadarius Toney, wasn't listed on the injury report after sitting out the same stretch, so it looks like he and Moore should be good to go on Sunday.

Even though Moore is expected to play, none of our best sports betting sites have receiving totals listed for Moore. He does have an intriguing price in the Super Bowl longest plays odds, where he's dealing at +2200 via DraftKings to finish with the longest reception of the game.

49ers injury updates, odds for Super Bowl 58

TE George Kittle (Toe - Limited)

Easily the biggest name on the 49ers' injury report is Kittle, who didn't practice at all last week with a toe injury that coach Kyle Shanahan has been coy about since.

Kittle didn't seem too concerned about it when asked about the injury ahead of Super Bowl 58, and he practiced in full on Friday. It appears the 49ers are expecting him and teammate Deebo Samuel - who was left off this week's injury report after playing through a shoulder injury in the NFC Championship - to be available on Sunday.

Even if he is healthy, Kittle faces a tough matchup against the Chiefs defense, as we discussed further in our Super Bowl receiving props.

DT Arik Armstead (Knee / Foot - Limited)

Armstead hasn't played for the 49ers since Week 14, but it's looking more likely each day that he'll make his return in the Super Bowl.

The former first-round pick in 2017 was one of four San Francisco players who were limited in practice earlier this week, and he was a full participant on Friday. It looks like he'll make his second Super Bowl appearance on Sunday after finishing with three tackles and a QB hit in 57 snaps when these teams met in Super Bowl LIV in 2020.

CB Ambry Thomas (Ankle - Limited)

Thomas has struggled to stay down the stretch of this season, as he already had surgery for a broken hand in early January before leaving the NFC Championship with an ankle injury.

While he was limited in this week's first two practices, Thomas was a full participant on Friday and seems likely to start in the slot for the 49ers. He'll be a crucial piece for a San Francisco pass defense that has struggled in recent weeks.
