Each practice day of the season, the Kansas City Chiefs release an official injury report leading up to the next game. The Chiefs are currently in Miami, preparing to face the San Francisco 49ers in Super Bowl LIV this Sunday at 5:30 p.m. Arrowhead Time.

Here are the final injury reports for both teams going into the championship game:

Notes:

  • Just as we expected, all Chiefs practiced fully on Friday. No player was given an injury status for the game. The team had what was described as a spirited 75-minute no-pads workout, starting with a walk-through and concluding with some red zone work.
  • Chiefs head coach Andy Reid said he expected all of his active players to be available on Sunday. When a reporter asked if he — apparently meaning the team — was ready to go, Reid replied, “I don’t want to play — but yeah, I’m ready to coach.” That seems like a pretty good indicator of the team’s mood: focused and playful.
  • Reid also said they will go through their usual Saturday routine: a mock game walk-through. “We’ll make sure the substitutions are right,” explained Reid, “then get a team picture, and we’re out of here.”
  • Chiefs owner Clark Hunt was in attendance with his family, briefly speaking to the team after the practice session.
  • All three of the players the 49ers had been limiting in practice last week in San Francisco — and this week in Miami — practiced fully on Friday. Like the Chiefs, the 49ers gave no injury designations for Sunday’s game; it appears that their full roster will also be available.
  • As in any NFL game, both teams will have to designate seven players from their 53-man roster as inactive for the championship contest — but it looks like all of them will be healthy scratches.
