DraftKings announced that they’ll be offering paid contests for the AFL (Australian Football League), giving us another live sport to help carry us through the absence of major sports in the US. We’ll be rolling out an AFL LineupHQ along with other content, so keep your eyes peeled! AFL contests will kick off on June 11th – this coming Thursday – with an early lock at 5:40 AM ET.
Every Chiefs player practiced fully Friday and is available for the Super Bowl. The Chiefs will take on a 49ers team that is also fully healthy, with every player available for both teams.
Coleman practiced fully on Friday for the first time this week and is going to be available for the Super Bowl. He had been limited by a dislocated shoulder injured in the conference championship round. Raheem Mostert is coming off a huge game, but his touches could be limited by Coleman’s return.
Coleman was limited for a second consecutive practice with a shoulder injury. He does have a good chance to play, although the extent of his role won’t be clear. He will also carry risk of re-aggravating the injury during the Super Bowl.
Coleman was able to return to practice Wednesday in a limited fashion. He is working through a dislocated shoulder injury suffered in the conference championship round. Raheem Mostert had a monster game after Coleman left, and would be in a great position again if Coleman is out. The 49ers’ running back situation becomes more complicated if Coleman is able to play. Unfortunately, there is a good chance that Coleman is a game-time decision.
The Chiefs are healthy heading into the Super Bowl, with every player practicing fully Wednesday. Travis Kelce was listed with a knee injury, but there is no concern about his availability.
Kelce was limited in practice Friday, although his status for the Super Bowl is not in question. The Chiefs are simply being cautious with their elite TE.
Pettis was out Thursday with an undisclosed illness, although his status for the Super Bowl is not at risk. Coleman was out again, and his availability will likely not be clear until late next week. He suffered a dislocated shoulder in the conference championship game.
Kelce will not practice Thursday with an undisclosed illness. With 10 days left until the Super Bowl, Kelce’s status is not in question, and he should play as usual.
The 49ers released an estimated practice report Wednesday, as they did not actually practice. Coleman was the only offensive player on the report, listed as not participating with his dislocated shoulder.
The Chiefs are a healthy team heading into the Super Bowl, with Demarcus Robinson the only player not to practice Wednesday. Robinson is dealing with an illness, making it likely that he will be healthy by Super Bowl Sunday. When the Chiefs are healthy at WR, Robinson has a small but consistent role, playing roughly half the offensive snaps and getting at least two targets in six straight games.
Coleman suffered a dislocated shoulder Sunday, and his status for the Super Bowl is not yet known. The results of an MRI should be available soon.
Grant and Williams have been frequent healthy scratches, but the Packers were hopeful to have Vitale, who was listed as questionable, for today’s game vs. the Niners. The Packers’ secondary tight ends could see more run with Vitale out, such as Jace Sternberger and Robert Tonyan.
With the 49ers top three running backs healthy, Jeff Wilson Jr. is a healthy scratch for the NFC Championship Game.
With Moore out due to illness, Chad Henne will back up Patrick Mahomes today.
