After the bedlam of the Super Bowl Opening Night on Monday — where few of the thousands of reporters in attendance asked many questions of consequence — on Tuesday morning, the Kansas City Chiefs were able to do something kinda-sorta like a regular press availability at a Miami hotel.
Later we’ll have more about what head coach Andy Reid (and a bunch of Chiefs players) had to say, but let’s start with the big headline from Tuesday’s press conference.
Reid said his team has “no injuries” heading into Sunday’s league championship.

Specifically, Reid said, “We’re healthy and ready to go.”
This is excellent news — but just about what we expected to hear. On Friday — before leaving Kansas City for Miami — the Chiefs said that tight end Travis Kelce and defensive tackle Chris Jones should be considered questionable for Super Bowl LIV. While nursing injuries, both played in the AFC championship against the Tennessee Titans. They were limited in last week’s practices in Kansas City — and while that could also occur during the team’s final practices in Miami, no one seriously expects either of them to miss Sunday’s game.
The San Francisco 49ers are also expected to come into the game with nearly everyone on their active roster ready to play.
