MOBILE, Ala. (WKRG) — Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Kadarius Toney and running back La’Mical Perine are officially inactive for Super Bowl LVIII.

Toney hasn’t played since Week 15 — originally due to a strained hip and ankle injury. The Blount High School alum sat out of the AFC Championship Game due to personal reasons. Toney revealed that he and his girlfriend, Charnesia Lumpkin, welcomed their first child on January 27th, the eve of the conference title game against the Ravens.

In 13 games played this season, Toney had 27 receptions for 169 yards and one touchdown.

Theodore High School graduate La’Mical Perine is inactive for Sunday’s big game. The Kansas City running back played in the past four games, primarily on special teams. Perine recorded 109 total yards in the regular season finale against the Los Angeles Chargers.

The former Bobcats standout is inactive as Chiefs running back Jerick McKinnon returns from a groin injury.

Chiefs defensive lineman Neil Farrell Jr. is active for Super Bowl LVIII. The Murphy High School graduate has seen time in four games this season, including the AFC Championship.

Former South Alabama stand out Darrell Luter Jr. will also represent the Mobile-area in Las Vegas. After returning from injury, the San Francisco cornerback has appeared in nine games this season, including both 49ers playoff victories. Luter could become the first Jags alum to play in a Super Bowl game.

Kickoff between the Chiefs and 49ers set for 5:30 p.m. pm WKRG News 5.
