Andy Reid on Mecole Hardman: "I doubt that he'll make the Super Bowl. He was not going to be denied the other day (last Sunday). That's a tribute to the kid. He push himself like no other. He's a tough, tough kid."

Hardman has been out due to a pelvis injury since Week 9 of the regular season, so this isn’t exactly shocking news that he likely won’t be able to go.
However, a number of players who were previously active in the AFC Championship game are also in question to play in the Super Bowl.
This is certainly a worrying injury report for Kansas City. Smith-Shuster led all Chiefs receivers in receptions and yards in the regular season. Sneed is tied for the team lead in interceptions during the regular season.
This injury report certainly caught the attention of many Chiefs fans. While some were concerned with this designation for key players, others believe that they will ultimately suit up in the matchup.

Hardman is doubtful. Sneed, Smith-Schuster and Toney are questionable. https://t.co/RqPjW5fhWM

Lots of talent on that list… fingers crossed it gets shorter closer to the game.

There is obviously plenty of time still ahead of the game for these players to get their health in order. However, having three key wide receivers listed as questionable has to be worrying for Chiefs fans.
