RB - Kansas City Chiefs
Jerick McKinnon remains a game-time decision, but he is expected to play in the Super Bowl on Sunday against the 49ers.
McKinnon is expected to return after undergoing hernia surgery just over one month ago. It is unclear what role he'll play, but he'll likely have some role in the passing game out of the backfield.
The Chiefs have officially activated Jerick McKinnon from injured reserve ahead of the Super Bowl on Sunday against the 49ers.
McKinnon has a chance to return to the Chiefs backfield after undergoing hernia surgery. If active, he may not hold a huge role after missing over a month but it'll be all hands on deck in the biggest game of the season on Sunday.
Jerick McKinnon has been listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the 49ers.
McKinnon was considered unlikely to play earlier in the week, but his designation of questionable gives him a chance. He was activated from IR last week.
Chiefs' coach Andy Reid said Jerick McKinnon is not practicing and is unlikely to play in the Super Bowl.
"I'd tell you it's slim for (McKinnon) to be out there," Reid said. He had his 21-day practice window opened earlier in the week, but still seems like a longshot to take the field on Sunday.
Jerick McKinnon has been designated to return off Injured Reserve.
The 21-day practice window was opened for McKinnon. He'll have a chance to practice this week and see if he can get healthy enough to play in the Super Bowl. He was placed on IR back before Week 16.
