  • Chiefs' Jerick McKinnon: Back in action for Super Bowl

    McKinnon (groin) is listed as active for Super Bowl LVIII against the 49ers on Sunday.

    Since his last appearance Week 15, McKinnon was placed on injured reserve Dec. 24 and subsequently underwent surgeries to address a sports hernia and a fractured pelvis on Jan. 2. As the regular season came to a close, there was a belief that he wouldn't be able to return in the playoffs, but he bucked those thoughts when the Chiefs designated him for return Feb. 3. Thereafter, he put together three consecutive limited practices this week, which was enough to be listed as questionable on the team's final injury report for the Super Bowl. Kansas City then activated McKinnon on Saturday, and he'll now suit up for Sunday's game. Isiah Pacheco is the clear lead runner for the Chiefs, but McKinnon and Clyde Edwards-Helaire will be available for any RB reps that linger.

  • Chiefs' Jerick McKinnon: Trending toward playing Sunday

    McKinnon (groin) remains listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the 49ers after being activated from injured reserve Saturday, but he's expected to play in Super Bowl LVIII, James Palmer of NFL Network reports.

    After being placed on IR on Dec. 24 and undergoing surgery to address a sports hernia and fractured pelvis, McKinnon looked like a long shot to make it back at any point in the postseason. However, with the Chiefs advancing to the Super Bowl, McKinnon had some extra time to heal up, and he appears to have made dramatic strides in his recovery despite being a limited participant in practices leading up to the matchup with San Francisco. According to Palmer, McKinnon is still viewed as a game-time decision, but barring any setbacks in pregame warmups, the 31-year-old looks like he could be in store for a small role on offense behind starting running back Isiah Pacheco, though it's unclear if McKinnon will supplant Clyde Edwards-Helaire as the No. 2 option. McKinnon is expected to be formally cleared to play when Kansas City releases its inactive list approximately 90 minutes before the game's 6:30 p.m. ET scheduled kickoff.

  • Chiefs' Jerick McKinnon: Activated for Super Bowl

    McKinnon (groin) was activated off injured reserve Saturday, though the running back is still a game-time decision for Sunday's Super Bowl against the 49ers, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

    Once the Chiefs designated McKinnon to return ahead of the Super Bowl, this roster designation seemed like the obvious outcome, but it still doesn't guarantee the pass-catching back actually plays in the big game. Expect Isiah Pacheco and Clyde Edwards-Helaire to see the bulk of the snaps even if McKinnon is officially able to play.

  • Chiefs' Jerick McKinnon: Listed as questionable for SB LVIII

    McKinnon (groin) is listed as questionable for the Super Bowl against San Francisco on Sunday.

    The Chiefs designated McKinnon for a return from injured reserve this past weekend and then listed him as a limited practice participant throughout the week. Andy Reid said Tuesday that he didn't expect the 31-year-old to play this Sunday, but it's possible McKinnon looked better than his coach expected on the practice field. The Chiefs will need to activate him from injured reserve Saturday if he's going to play Sunday, in which case McKinnon might take back his role as the team's preferred back in obvious passing situations. Starter Isiah Pacheco and third-stringer Clyde Edwards-Helaire have shared those snaps in McKinnon's absence this postseason.

  • Chiefs' Jerick McKinnon: Another limited session

    McKinnon (groin) was a limited participant in Thursday's practice.

    McKinnon is recovering from sports hernia surgery that he underwent in early January and now has managed to turn in two capped practices ahead of Sunday's Super Bowl matchup against the 49ers. It has been previously reported that he's unlikely to suit up for the contest, though an upgrade to a full session Friday could change his outlook. Without McKinnon in the mix, Isiah Pacheco and Clyde Edwards-Helaire (illness) will handle the bulk of the work out of the backfield this weekend.

  • Chiefs' Jerick McKinnon: Limited in practice Wednesday

    McKinnon (groin) was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice.

    McKinnon was designated to return from injured reserve last week after completing his recovery from sports hernia surgery and a procedure to address a fractured pelvis. He's eligible to play in Sunday's Super Bowl matchup with the 49ers, but head coach Andy Reid has already stated that McKinnon is unlikely to be cleared in time for that contest. Isiah Pacheco and Clyde Edwards-Helaire should continue to handle backfield duties for the Chiefs this weekend.

  • Chiefs' Jerick McKinnon: Not looking good for Super Bowl

    McKinnon (sports hernia) hasn't been practicing this week, with Kansas City coach Andy Reid saying Tuesday that the running back is unlikely to play in the Super Bowl, NFL.coms Kevin Patra reports.

    The team designated the 31-year-old running back to return from injured reserve Saturday, creating some hope that he'd be available against the 49ers this coming Sunday. That now sounds like a long shot. The snaps that went to McKinnon earlier this season have been divided between Isiah Pacheco and Clyde Edwards-Helaire in recent weeks.

  • Chiefs' Jerick McKinnon: Cleared to practice

    McKinnon (sports hernia/pelvis) was designated to return from injured reserve Saturday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

    McKinnon appeared to be unlikely to play at any point during Kansas City's playoff run after he was placed on IR on Dec. 24 before undergoing sports hernia surgery and another procedure to repair a fractured pelvis, but he's seemingly made quicker progress than anticipated. The veteran running back was helped by the fact that the Chiefs advanced to the Super Bowl, and if McKinnon can resume practicing during the upcoming week without any discomfort, he could have an outside chance at being available for the Feb. 11 matchup with the 49ers. Even if McKinnon demonstrates enough progress and is added back to the 53-man roster ahead of the Super Bowl, he would likely be in store for little more than a light backup role behind Isiah Pacheco, who has handled a three-down workload thus far in the postseason. Rather than Pacheco, Clyde Edwards-Helaire would be more at risk of losing snaps if McKinnon is activated for the Super Bowl.
