No player likes missing games, but when it’s the Super Bowl, it may be the worst time ever to miss out on that once-in-a-lifetime event.
It was entirely possible that Mecole Hardman could’ve turned a corner in the next few days, but as of right now, it appears he will not be taking the field in the Super Bowl. The Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver was listed as “doubtful” for this weekend’s Super Bowl.

In the 2022 season, Hardman recorded 25 receptions for 297 yards and four touchdowns while averaging 11.9 yards per catch.
The Chiefs will face off against the Philadelphia Eagles in this year’s Super Bowl on Sunday, Feb. 12.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
