The Kansas City Chiefs are set to face off against the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday in Super Bowl 57, and a significant update was given by the Chiefs on Friday regarding a number of players that were previously listed as questionable for the game.
The Chiefs revealed on Friday that there are currently no injury designations ahead of the Super Bowl. Starting cornerback L’Jarius Sneed along with starting wide receivers Kadarius Toney and Juju-Smith-Schuster were previously questionable, but have practiced in full on Friday.

There was also seemingly an upper-respiratory illness that was going around the Chiefs’ locker room earlier this week, but that also doesn’t seem to be an issue.
Meanwhile, it looks like the Eagles are mostly good to go as well in terms of their injury report, with only return man Britain Covey listed as questionable for the game.

Heading into the matchup, the Chiefs are 1.5 point underdogs in the matchup according to Caesars Sportsbook, a betting line that is somewhat surprising considering the Chiefs have the NFL MVP in Patrick Mahomes on their side.
However, the Eagles have consistently proven that they are perhaps the most well-rounded team in football, with a defense that ranks third in NFL history for the most total sacks in a season.

This battle between the Chiefs’ dominant offense and the Eagles’ stifling defense sets up this Super Bowl to be one of the most entertaining games on paper in recent memory.
