Some notes

  • The Chiefs listed two players not practicing: defensive tackle Charles Omenihu (knee), who has a torn ACL and is done for the season, and left guard Joe Thuney (pectoral), who maintains an outside chance of playing in the Super Bowl.
  • It’s good news for Kansas City that defensive tackle Chris Jones (quad) and running back Isiah Pacheco (toe) were limited on Thursday, as the team estimated them to be out of practice on Wednesday.
  • Wide receiver Skyy Moore (knee) was limited and offensive tackle Prince Tega Wanogho (quad) was a full participant, but both players remain on injured reserve and would need to be activated to the 53-man roster to participate in the Super Bowl. The Chiefs should have an open spot when they eventually place Omenihu on IR.
  • Linebacker Willie Gay Jr. (neck) and cornerback L’Jarius Sneed (calf) were upgraded to full participants on Thursday. Gay could not play in the AFC Championship game, so this is a good sign for his Super Bowl availability.
  • Wide receiver Kadarius Toney (personal) is no longer on the injury report.
  • For the 49ers, tackle Trent Williams did not participate on Thursday. He was designated to be getting a rest day.
  • Defensive end Arik Armstead (knee-foot) was also downgraded to did not participate.
  • Defensive tackle Kalia Davis (ankle) was again a full participant. He is designated for return from injured reserve, so he will not play unless he is activated to the roster before the Super Bowl.
