The Kansas City Chiefs are trying to go back to back for the first time in decades. They just got great news that they should have one of their running backs back for the Super Bowl. Jerick McKinnon is expected to play in the Super Bowl after being out to injury. McKinnon was a huge factor in the Super Bowl run last season and this will be a huge addition for the big game. McKinnon was crucial in the playoff run last season and will look to make an immediate impact in another Super Bowl.
Kansas City Chiefs’ Jerick McKinnon Should Play In Super Bowl
It was reported today by James Palmer that all signs are pointing to the running back being able to for the Bowl. He made two separate statements about the likelihood we see Jet suit up. He was quoted saying:
“There is a good chance the #Chiefs will have RB Jet McKinnon today. He’s considered a game time decision but he’s expected to go per source. Remarkable that’s he’s been able to get himself ready for this game. ”
He posted further saying:
“McKinnon felt good during his rehab as it’s been steady progress day to day. This was a game he WILL NOT miss. Jet went through a lot mentally during his time with the #49ers and has been waiting for this match up since he came to KC.”
This is not only incredibly impressive on Jet’s part but this is huge news for the Chiefs as McKinnon is a crucial weapon on third down and in the red zone. Having Rice, Kelce, Jet, and Pacheco will bode very well for their offense.
Jerrick McKinnon Is In and A Few Key Players Are Out
The Kansas City Chiefs needed Jet back as they also have had a few notable injuries and key players out. Specifically, Joe Thuney will not play in this game which is a huge loss for the Oline. The line did hold up very well against the Ravens but we will see if they can do it again. Maybe Mahomes will just be getting the ball out quick and try to establish the run early on.
The team has also ruled out receiver Kadarius Toney making Jet’s return all the more important for the offense. The team should be fine as they have Patrick Mahomes who can cover for any of the mishaps on offense and their defense has been the best in the league an done of the best playoff history. Getting Jet back is huge news for a team that is losing a few key pieces in the Super Bowl.
