  • Chiefs' Joe Thuney: Will finish season on IR

    Thuney (pectoral) was placed on injured reserve Saturday. Thuney was ruled out ahead of Sunday's Super Bowl matchup with the 49ers, so his move to IR doesn't come as a surprise. With Thuney off the 53-man roster, the Chiefs were able to open up a spot for running back Jerick McKinnon (groin), who was activated from IR in a corresponding move. Nick Allegretti is expected to start at left guard in the Super Bowl in Thuney's stead.

  • Chiefs' Joe Thuney: Sits out practice Wednesday

    Thuney (pectoral) didn't practice Wednesday. The two-time Pro Bowl left guard is believed to be dealing with a significant pectoral injury, and head coach Andy Reid has expressed doubt about Thuney's availability for Sunday's Super Bowl matchup with the 49ers. However, James Palmer of NFL Network relays that "those around Thuney still believe that there is a shot" he can play. Veteran Nick Allegretti made the start at left guard versus the Ravens in the AFC Championship Game and should get another start this weekend if Thuney is ruled out.

  • Chiefs' Joe Thuney: Unlikely to play in Super Bowl

    Thuney (pectoral) is unlikely to be available for the Super Bowl on Sunday, Kevin Patra of the Chiefs' official site reports. Head coach Andy Reid said it's a long shot that Thuney practices this week as he is still recovering from the strained pectoral he suffered during Kansas City's victory in the divisional round. If the 31-year-old can't suit up versus the 49ers, Nick Allegretti should get the start at left guard for the second consecutive game.

  • Chiefs' Joe Thuney: Logs another 'DNP'

    Thuney (pectoral) was listed as a non-participant on the Chiefs' estimated injury report for the second day in a row Thursday. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport already reported before the AFC Championship Game that Thuney would be a "long shot" to play in the Super Bowl if the Chiefs were to advance. The 2023 First Team All-Pro started all 17 regular season games and Kansas City's first two playoff games. If he can't suit up Feb. 11 against the 49ers, Nick Allegretti is next up on the depth chart.

  • Chiefs' Joe Thuney: Season likely over

    Thuney (pectoral), who has already been ruled out for Sunday's AFC Championship Game against the Ravens, is unlikely to play in the Super Bowl if the Chiefs can beat Baltimore, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. Thuney has received varying diagnoses' on his pectoral injury, with some experts believing it is torn, while others believe it's just a strain. Either way, it appears the 31-year-old's season is over, and he may need surgery to repair the injury. Nick Allegretti is expected to start at left guard in his place Sunday.

  • Chiefs' Joe Thuney: Missing AFC Championship Game

    Thuney (pectoral) has been ruled out ahead of Sunday's AFC Championship Game against the Ravens. Thuney was unable to practice all week after he exited the Chiefs' divisional-round win over the Bills with a pectoral injury, so it's not a surprise that he won't be suiting up Sunday. Kansas City's offensive line could very well struggle to replace the 31-year-old, as he snagged first-team All-Pro honors this season. Without Thuney, Nick Allegretti is expected to get the nod at left guard.
