The only injury concerns heading into Super Bowl LIV for the
Chiefs were defensive tackle Chris Jones, who has dealt with a calf
strain in the AFC title game, and tight end Travis Kelce, who has
been dealing with a sore knee.
Chiefs coach Andy Reid said that Kelce was fine and that Jones was
”good to go” after a 90-minute workout Wednesday.
Reid wanted to keep the week before the game relatively light, so
the Chiefs installed virtually the entire game plan for Sunday
night’s game before they departed Kansas City. That allowed them to
deal with the circus of opening night Monday and more media
responsibilities Tuesday without worrying about putting things in
place for the game.
”They loved it,” Reid told a pool reporter after the workout,
which took place at the Miami Dolphins’ practice facility under
sunny skies and with temperatures hitting 80 degrees. ”They got a
little sunshine, so they loved it.”
Running back Tevin Coleman returned to practice
Wednesday for the San Francisco 49ers. Coleman dislocated his shoulder
in the NFC championship game.
”We’ll see as the week goes how much the pain tolerance is for his
shoulder,” said 49ers coach Kyle Shanahan, who also has Matt
Breida and breakout star Raheem Mostert at his disposal in the
Coleman was listed as limited on the injury list along with
linebacker Kwon Alexander, who returned from a torn pectoral muscle
in the playoffs, and safety Jaquiski Tartt, who has been dealing
with sore ribs.
”They all got to go,” Shanahan said. ””I’m expecting them to be
good by Sunday.”
