Kenjon Barner is inactive for Buccaneers in Super Bowl 55 originally appeared on NBC Sports Northwest

The Kansas City Chiefs vs. the Tampa Bay Buccaneers-- Super Bowl LV is here! 

As Patrick Mahomes and Tom Brady look to bring the Lombardi Trophy home, it will be a collective effort from top to bottom. 

Active rosters have been announced for the big game and former Oregon Ducks running back Kenjon Barner will not be in uniform for Tampa Bay. 

Barner, who will be entering his third Super Bowl, was a question mark as to whether he'd suit up after being activated from the IR and was eligible to return on January 20th from a groin injury. He did not play in the NFC Championship Game. 

Bucs head coach Bruce Arians told reporters earlier in the week it'd be "a late call" as to whether or not they'd activate Barner. 

They did not activate him and it appears they will stick with former Washington Huskies receiver Jaydon Mickens as their return specialist. 

Barner was on the Philadelphia Eagles when they defeated the New England Patriots 41-33 in Super Bowl LII. Barner had three kickoff returns for a total of 73 yards in that game. He was also a member of the New England Patriots when they defeated the Los Angeles Rams 13-3 in Super Bowl LVIII.

Even if he is inactive, a third Super Bowl ring would be a great addition to collection!
