Although he's not listed in the final Chiefs vs 49ers Super Bowl injury report, published reports are suggesting KC WR Kadarius Toney is out for the big game.

  • In the San Francisco 49ers vs Kansas City Chiefs final inactive and injury report for the Super Bowl, KC All-Pro LG Joe Thuney (pectoral) is out
  • There are published reports stating Chiefs WR Kadarius Toney won’t be playing in the game
  • The 49ers are reporting no injuries among the team’s starters

There was a slim hope that the final 49ers vs Chiefs injury reports would bring better news for Chiefs starting left guard Joe Thuney. However, that isn’t the case.

All-Pro Thuney will miss the big game due to a pectoral injury. He’s the only starter on either team carrying an injury designation as the clock ticks down the final hours until kickoff for Super Bowl 58.

San Francisco is the 2-point chalk over Kansas City in the Chiefs vs 49ers odds. Kansas City is an NFL-best 3-0 against the spread as an underdog this season.

So far in the Chiefs vs 49ers public betting splits, underdog Kansas City is getting 70% of ATS handle and 74% of moneyline handle.

Thuney Unlikely Participant for Chiefs

While there was some speculation that Thuney might be able to suit up for the Super Bowl, it turned out to be based more in hope than reality. He’s since been placed on IR. Thuney was originally injured in Kansas City’s NFL Divisional Round win at Buffalo. He’ll be missing his second straight game. 

Though he’s not listed as injured, there’s growing speculation that Chiefs WR Kadarius Toney won’t be playing on Super Bowl Sunday. He hasn’t seen any game action since Week 15. Previously listed as having a hip injury, there’s also been rumblings that Toney’s absence is due to personal reasons.

Kansas City activated RB Jerick McKinnon (groin) from IR and he’s been a full participant in practice this week. He’ll be a game-time decision. McKinnon has been out since December 17 and in actuality, has been used sparingly all season long.

Kansas City Chiefs Injury Report

Player-Position Injury Game Status
Charlies Omenihu-DE Knee Out (IR)
Derrick Nnadi-DT Triceps Out (IR)
Joe Thuney-G Pectoral Out (IR)
Jerick McKinnon-RB Groin Questionable
Nikko Remigio-WR Wrist Out (IR)
Prince Tega Wanogho-T Quad Out (IR)
Cam Jones-LB Chest Out (IR)
Jody Fortson-TE Shoulder Out (IR)
Nazeeh Johnson-S Knee Out (IR)
Bryan Cook-S Ankle Out (IR)

Chiefs WR Rashee Rice tweaked an ankle at Thursday’s practice, but was a full participant in Friday’s practice. He’s not carrying any injury designation.

Kansas City’s defensive line depth is suddenly short-staffed. Both DT Derrick Nnadi (triceps) and DE Charles Omenihu were placed on IR this week. Omenihu tore his ACL in the AFC Championship Game win over Baltimore.

All Systems Go for 49ers

All three San Francisco starters who were in previous injury reports – TE George Kittle (toe), LDT Arik Armstead (foot/knee) and LB Oren Burks (shoulder) – were full participants in practice as this week wore on. That means Kittle could be worth bets in the 49ers vs Chiefs props.

They’ve since had their injury designations removed, as has backup CB Ambry Thomas (ankle).

Player-Position Injury Game Status
Danny Gray-WR Shoulder Out (IR)
Ross Dwelley-TE Ankle Out (IR)

DT Kalia Davis (ankle), currently on IR, has been a full practice participant this week.

How Could Injuries Affect Chiefs vs 49ers Betting Lines?

Thuney’s absence looms large. He’s a First Team All-Pro selection this season, Thuney has been a Pro Bowl selection each of the past two seasons. He was a starter for Kansas City’s first 19 games this season.

Nick Allegretti will step into Thuney’s role at LG. He’s a five-year veteran who’s started 14 games during five seasons with the Chiefs. That includes the AFC Championship Game against Baltimore and one regular-season game this season.

Toney scored a TD in last year’s Super Bowl win over the Philadelphia Eagles. Toney’s projected absence figures to make WR Skyy Moore’s activation from IR even more significant. Moore hasn’t played since injuring his knee December 17 against New England. He’s made 21 pass receptions for 244 yards and one TD this season.

Nnadi missed the past two games with his triceps injury. His loss leaves Mike Pennel Jr and Tershawn Watson as healthy reserve options at DT.

The 49ers are opting not to activate second-year DT Kalia Davis (ankle) from IR, even though he was a full participant in practice this week. San Francisco activated DE Alex Barrett and DT TY McGill from the practice squad for DL depth.
