Joe Thuney ruled out of Super Bowl 2024 with pectoral issue; Jerick McKinnon’s status uncertain.

As the Super Bowl LVIII approaches, both the San Francisco 49ers and the Kansas City Chiefs are reporting minor injuries on their rosters. The Chiefs have ruled out Charles Omenihu from playing in the game due to a torn ACL sustained during the AFC championship game. However, they have welcomed back Joe Thuney to their lineup after he suffered a pectoral issue in their playoff game against the Buffalo Bills. Jerick McKinnon has been activated from injured reserve and will be a game-time decision for Sunday’s matchup.

The 49ers, on the other hand, have George Kittle and Arik Armstead fully participating in Friday’s practice and are expected to play in the Super Bowl despite being limited earlier in the week. Jerick McKinnon is also listed as questionable due to a groin injury, while OL Prince Tega Wanogho is ruled out with a quad injury. Wideout Rashee Rice was reportedly stepped on during Thursday’s practice but is expected to play without any issues.

The Super Bowl LVIII will take place at Allegiant Stadium on Sunday at 6:30 p.m. ET and can be watched on CBS or Paramount+.
