The Philadelphia Eagles released their second official injury report of the week before Super Bowl LVII against the Kansas City Chiefs.
Updates on Jalen Hurts and Patrick Mahomes’ injury status for Super Bowl LVII game
Kansas City Chiefs
- There were no injuries.
In spite of the fact that no team has a completely healthy roster at this point in the season, the Chiefs can take heart in the fact that no one will be listed as questionable for Sunday’s game when they release their final injury report of the week.
Patrick Mahomes, the team’s quarterback, was closely watched after leaving the AFC Championship Game with multiple injuries, including a high-ankle sprain.
As one of eight players, Mahomes never saw his workload decreased during the week (linebacker Willie Gay, running backs Jerick McKinnon and Isiah Pacheco, right guard Trey Smith and wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster).
Wide receiver Kadarius Toney and cornerback L’Jarius Sneed both came close to scoring for the Chiefs this week.
Toney said he would play in Super Bowl LVII despite leaving the AFC Championship Game with an ankle injury on Opening Night of Super Bowl LVII week, but he was a limited participant in Wednesday’s practice and did not play in the big game. His condition stabilized at full after two days of recovery, so we can stop worrying about him.
Sneed was cleared from the league’s concussion protocol on Wednesday, so he was not listed as injured. He was limited in practice on Thursday because of a knee injury, but by Friday he was back to full strength.
As you can imagine, the Chiefs’ ability to send their entire active roster to the Super Bowl is a huge boost. However, having those options available can be a huge boost for both sides, regardless of how effective their injured players will be in their final game of the year.
- Britain Covey (Hamstring) – Questionable
At least five Eagles players who were listed as injured on Friday were able to take part in full drills on Saturday. Receptionist Britain Covey has a hamstring injury and may not play in the Super Bowl.
Britain Since the NFC Championship Game, Covey has been hobbled by a hamstring injury; he is the only player on the team to have one officially listed.
The Eagles might struggle without Covey, their best punt returner.
Although quarterback Jalen Hurts has been playing through a shoulder injury since last week, he is likely to be limited in some way.
After a full day of practice, all five starters (Johnson, Jurgens, Dickerson, Maddox, and Quinn) are healthy and ready to play on Sunday night.
