Shark Bites

Chiefs RB Jerick McKinnon (hamstring) missed practice on Thursday. That’s back to back missed practices for the veteran. We’ll see if he’s able to return on Friday ahead of a huge Sunday showdown with Cincinnati.

Chiefs RB Jerick McKinnon (groin) is active for tonight's game vs. the 49ers. It's a surprise after HC Andy Reid said Tuesday that McKinnon had a "slim" chance to play. He evidently made more progress than expected throughout the week. We're still not expecting McKinnon to play a major role in his first action since mid-December, although he could siphon some passing-down snaps from RB Isiah Pacheco.

Chiefs RB Jerick McKinnon (groin) is listed as questionable for the Super Bowl. He was limited in practice all week. HC Andy Reid said Tuesday that McKinnon had a "slim" chance to play, so we're currently projecting him to miss this one. We'll get Kansas City's inactives around 5 pm ET on Sunday.

Chiefs HC Andy Reid said Tuesday that chances are "slim" RB Jerick McKinnon plays in the Super Bowl. He was designated to return this past weekend but evidently isn't ready for game action after early-January surgery to repair a core muscle injury and fractured pelvis. RB Isiah Pacheco should continue to dominate Chiefs backfield work vs. the 49ers on Sunday.

Chiefs RB Jerick McKinnon (groin) has been designated to return from IR. That makes him eligible to play in next Sunday's Super Bowl, although it's still unclear if he will. McKinnon has been out since mid-December and had surgery to repair a core muscle injury and fractured pelvis on January 2. He averaged 1.8 carries and 2.7 targets across 12 games this season.

Chiefs RB Jerick McKinnon is unlikely to play this postseason, according to Chiefs Digest's Matt Derrick. McKinnon had surgery on January 2 for a core muscle injury and a fractured pelvis, per Derrick, which is expected to sideline him at least 6-8 weeks. McKinnon's absence leaves Clyde Edwards-Helaire as Kansas City's No. 2 RB -- and Isiah Pacheco in a workhorse role.
