KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Despite being off the final Super Bowl LVIII injury report, Kansas City Chiefs wide reciever Kadarius Toney is not expected to play against the San Francisco 49ers, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.
A controversial Instagram live from Toney before the AFC Championship game saw him insinuate that he’s been a healthy scratch during this Chiefs playoff run.
He disputed the intention behind his public tirade when asked about it on Super Bowl LVIII opening night on Monday.
The Chiefs reported other important personnel notes on Saturday.
Offensive lineman Joe Thuney wasn’t expected to play on Sunday after injuring his pectoral muscle against the Buffalo Bills in the divisional round. Kansas City officially placed Thuney on the injured reserve list, joining defensive end Charles Omenihu, defensive tackle Derrick Nnadi and safety Bryan Cook.
KC activated defensive lineman Mike Pennel from the practice squad to replace Thuney’s spot on the active roster.
Running back Jerick McKinnon was activated on Saturday, and listed as a game-time decision. He’s dealing with a groin injury.
