The Chiefs will be without All-Pro guard Joe Thuney for Sunday’s AFC Championship Game against the Baltimore Ravens.
Thuney has been ruled out with a pectoral injury that he suffered in last week’s Divisional Round victory over the Buffalo Bills. Thuney has appeared in the playoffs in all seven of his NFL seasons and hasn’t missed a start in 18 games with the New England Patriots and Chiefs.
Reserve offensive lineman Nick Allegretti took 13 snaps at guard last week in place of Thuney.
“All of the guys look at him like he’s a starter, so everybody’s got confidence that he can come in and do a nice job,” Chiefs coach Andy Reid said.
Also listed out for the Chiefs for Sunday’s game are defensive tackle Derrick Nnadi (triceps injury) and wide receiver Skyy Moore (knee). Nnadi was injured in the Chiefs’ playoff opener against the Miami Dolphins. Veteran Mike Pennel played 52% of the snaps against the Bills.
Among those listed as questionable for the Chiefs are running back Isiah Pacheco (ankle/toe), linebacker Willie Gay (neck), safety Mike Edwards (concussion) and wide receiver Kadarius Toney (hip).
The Ravens listed three players as questionable for Sunday’s game: cornerbacks Marlon Humphrey (calf) and Rock Ya-Sin (knee) and wide receiver Tylan Wallce (knee). Linebacker Del’Shawn Phillips was listed as doubtful.
