The Kansas City Chiefs have received a significant injury boost ahead of their Super Bowl 57 showdown against the Philadelphia Eagles.
NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport has reported that cornerback L’Jarius Sneed should be ready to play in the final game of the season despite limited practice because of an injured knee.
The 26-year-old has been a regular for the Chiefs’ secondary since being drafted out of the fourth round in 2020. He was selected as part of the All-Rookie Team that year after making three interceptions.
Sneed was forced to exit the AFC Championship affair against the Cincinnati Bengals due to a concussion, leaving the Chiefs to employ a young secondary against two of the NFL’s best receivers in Tee Higgins and Ja’Marr Chase.
While KC managed to deal with the key absence against the Bengals, the Eagles might have been a different story. Fortunately, Sneed passed concussion protocol this week and is likely to be available on Sunday.
This should come as great news to the Chiefs and their fans given Sneed’s productivity. He picked off another three passes during the regular season, also making 108 combined tackles and 3.5 sacks during what was another sold campaign.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
