Practice reports, official injury designations, and Super Bowl odds written below are current as of Wednesday, Feb. 7. The NFL injury report widget may show more current information. This injury analysis will be updated heading into Super Bowl Sunday.
Chiefs Super Bowl Injury Report
The Chiefs are dealing with a key injury on the offensive line.
🏥 Joe Thuney (pectoral) was forced to miss the AFC Championship Game. This is an offensive guard who put up an 83.4 Pass-Blocking Grade per PFF, so the Chiefs definitely need him for the big game.
But reports indicate that Thuney is unlikely to play this week. The good news for Kansas City is that Nick Allegretti is a capable backup.
🏥 Edge rusher Charles Omenihu (seven sacks) tore his ACL in the win over the Ravens. The fifth-year player had a breakout season (70.4 PFF Pass Rush Grade), so this is a major loss.
Luckily for the Chiefs, George Karlaftis and Chris Jones are stud pass rushers who can carry the load to help fill this void.
These injuries make 49ers -2 (-110) at DraftKings Sportsbook an NFL pick of the day.
49ers Super Bowl Injury Report
The 49ers have one of their stars nursing a toe injury.
🏥 Tight end George Kittle is a bit banged up, but he’s ready to go for the big game.
🏥 Cornerback Ambry Thomas was ruled out of the NFC Championship after only 37 snaps. Thomas had a solid season (70.5 PFF Coverage Grade), so his absence would surely be felt, but he should be ready to return.
If Thomas can’t go, that could weaken the 49ers pass defense, making Over 47 (-110) at DraftKings Sportsbook look like an intriguing play.
