Joe Thuney ruled out with pectoral issue for Super Bowl 2024; Jerick McKinnon’s status uncertain for game time

The Super Bowl LVIII injury report is not too concerning for either the San Francisco 49ers or Kansas City Chiefs. The Chiefs will be without Charles Omenihu and Joe Thuney, who has been ruled out with a pectoral issue.

Thuney suffered the injury during the Chiefs’ playoff game against the Buffalo Bills and it will keep him from playing in the Super Bowl. Nick Allegretti will continue to fill in. On the other hand, Rashee Rice, who was reportedly stepped on during practice, will play with no issues. Jerick McKinnon has been activated from injured reserve and is expected to be a game-time decision for the Chiefs.

On the 49ers side, George Kittle fully participated in Friday’s practice and was given no injury designation after being limited earlier in the week. Head coach Kyle Shanahan said he wasn’t worried and the pair will play in the Super Bowl. Arik Armstead also participated fully in practice and was given no injury designation after being limited earlier in the week. The game will air on Sunday at 6:30 p.m. ET on CBS and Paramount+.
