Some notes

  • The Chiefs say that three players are officially questionable for the game as of Friday: left guard Joe Thuney (pectoral), wide receiver Skyy Moore (IR/knee) and offensive tackle Prince Tega Wanogho (IR/quad).
  • Defensive tackle Charles Omenhiu (torn ACL) is out, and he is likely to be replaced by Moore or Wanogho, who remain on the injured reserve list at the time of this writing.
  • Chris Jones (quad) and running back Isiah Pacheco (toe) participated in two limited practices this week and are expected to be “good to go” for the game.
  • As mentioned earlier this week, wide receiver Kadarius Toney (personal) is off the injury report.
  • Offensive coordinator Matt Nagy on Toney’s status: “I thought he looked good. For us, it’s a day-by-day thing for him and where he’s at… it’s kind of an interesting week just because you do have that extra week. Just really mentally keeping the pace up for everybody but also physically trying to make sure you don’t lose your conditioning as well, but he did well... We’re evaluating all that with every player every day, just kind of seeing where they’re at. We want to be able to see it in practice. It’s so important to be able to see these guys practice, and see how they’re doing individually and then how they fit within the scheme and what we have.”
  • Linebacker Willie Gay Jr. (neck) and cornerback L’Jarius Sneed (calf) were upgraded to full participants on Thursday and remained that way Friday. Gay could not play in the AFC Championship game, so this is a good sign for his Super Bowl availability.
  • The 49ers only list one player as questionable, and he is on injured reserve: defensive tackle Kalia Davis (ankle). It is worth noting that tight end George Kittle (toe) did not practice all week, but he is still considered good to go for the Super Bowl.
