LOOK: Chiefs RB Jerick McKinnon sports new hairstyle for matchup vs. Lions

Kansas City Chiefs running back Jerick McKinnon has quickly become a fan-favorite in his relatively brief career with the team, and his personality is the stuff of legend.

His quick wit, charming personality, and agreeable nature have made him a beloved member of Chiefs Kingdom. Fans got another reason to dote on the speedy rusher on Thursday evening when he showed off his new hairstyle ahead of Kansas City’s matchup against the Detroit Lions.

McKinnon’s new blond look may take some time for fans to get used to, but when he puts his helmet on nobody will be able to tell the difference.

Confidence is key for players in the NFL, and McKinnon certainly seemed to be comfortable with his new hairdo in the clip that the Chiefs shared on Twitter. Now, he will need to make that confidence translate to the field, especially in the passing game as Kansas City is set to take on the Lions without star tight end Travis Kelce.
