Andy Reid proclaims Chiefs ‘healthy and ready to go’ for Super Bowl
And it appears, they will be completely healthy. At least, that’s what head coach Andy Reid says.
#Chiefs coach Andy Reid says he has no injuries to report: “I think we’re healthy and ready to go.”

Reid definitely has some numbers to back this up. The only two players on the injury report for the Chiefs were defensive tackle Chris Jones and safety Jordan Lucas.
Jones was on there for the calf injury that’s been bothering him for quite some time now. However, he played through it for the AFC Championship game. There’s no reason to believe he won’t be able to do the same for the Super Bowl after two full weeks to rest it.
Meanwhile, Lucas was on there for an “illness.” That seems more like something that caused him to miss a practice. It won’t be something that keeps him from playing in the biggest game of the year.
Besides, after the Super Bowl, it’s the offseason. Then the players have all the time they need to rest up before next season. With that in mind, something so minor is not going to keep a player out. So as of right now, it looks like Reid is right. Unless something changes in the next few days, the Chiefs will indeed be extremely healthy and ready to go for the Super Bowl.
That bodes well for them, as the 49ers are certainly no easy task. It’s going to take everything they’ve got for the Chiefs to win. That obviously includes having a full roster.
