On Sunday, Head Coach Andy Reid will have a full complement of receivers, including one of their walking-wounded. The Kansas City Chiefs placed Defensive End Charles Omenihu on Injured Reserve and made a corresponding move for the offense.
Wide Receiver Skyy Moore has been activated off injured reserve, and if he chooses, Head Coach Andy Reid could activate him for Sunday’s Super Bowl. Kansas City was at the end of his three-week practice window, and they had to activate him Wednesday to make room for Charles Omenihu, who tore his ACL in the AFC Championship game against the Baltimore Ravens.
What Reid will do with Moore is still being determined, but now he has all his receivers healthy for the Super Bowl. Kadarius Toney was also injured, and he’s been practicing again, so it’s doubtful Moore will be active on Sunday.
Still, for Reid, who has been putting his team through padded practices leading up to Super Bowl LVIII, it never hurts to have someone ready in the event an unexpected injury occurs between now and then.
Moore has been a major disappointment this season. The team hoped he’d take the next step in assessing more productive playing time, but that didn’t happen.
Now he enters this game much like his off-season, can he live up to the promise of being a second-round draft pick heading into his third season?
The fact he’s on the active roster before the Super Bowl will give him confidence that he can become a fixture in the Chiefs revamped 2024 offense.
In other Chiefs news, cornerback L’Jarius Snead returned to the team after his wife gave birth to their baby daughter in Kansas City this week. He is expected to play Sunday, and he spoke to the media yesterday, indicating that everyone is okay and ready to get back on the field.
