The Kansas City Chiefs will play in Super Bowl LVIII against the San Francisco 49ers without All-Pro guard Joe Thuney because of a pectoral injury, Adam Teicher of ESPN reports.

Thuney was injured during the Chiefs' divisional round playoff victory over the Buffalo Bills. He didn't play in the AFC Championship Game against the Baltimore Ravens. The Chiefs held some hope heading to Las Vegas that Thuney could play in the Super Bowl, but he didn't practice all week, and the Chiefs listed him as out for the game on their final injury report of the week.

He will be replaced in the starting lineup at left guard by Nick Allegretti, who started against the Ravens. In his five seasons with the Chiefs, Allegretti started 13 regular games and four more in the postseason, including their Super Bowl LV loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers after the 2020 season.

Everyone else on the Chiefs' active roster will be available to play against the 49ers. Two backup players on their injured reserve list were listed on the injury report, running back Jerick McKinnon (groin) as questionable and offensive lineman Prince Tega Wanogho (quad) as out.
