The Kansas City Chiefs and San Francisco 49ers have released their inactive lists for Super Bowl LIV.

As expected, all the inactive players appear to be healthy scratches — including running back LeSean McCoy, whom we expected to be a healthy scratch.

DT Chris Jones , TE Travis Kelce, C Austin Reiter and TE Deon Yelder were all listed on Friday’s final injury report before the game. All practiced fully on Friday, were not given an injury status for the game and were expected to be available to play.

Jones was limited in his snap count in the AFC championship game against the Tennessee Titans after being listed as questionable before the game. Kelce has been dealing with a IT band issue that has been described as painful, but he has been carrying a full workload on game days. Reiter was listed with a wrist injury and Yelder with an Achilles injury.

With Chad Henne inactive, Matt Moore will be Patrick Mahomes’ backup for the game.

It appears that all of the 49ers inactives are also healthy scratches for the game.

LB Kwon Alexander, RB Tevin Coleman and S Jaquiski Tartt — with pectoral, shoulder and rib injuries on Friday’s injury report — we all expected to play. None are inactive for the game.
