Kansas City's left guard Joe Thuney has been a veteran anchor for the team for a long time. As such, his injury during the divisional round was a massive concern. He was listed as out due to a pectoral injury and didn't practice this past week. As the Chiefs head towards the Super Bowl, Thuney is seeking second opinions on his injury, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Though Thuney has not been ruled out, his chances of playing are considered a long shot for Super Bowl LVII. Unless he undergoes surgery between now and the start of the game, more rest could help his chances of playing.

4. DT Chris Jones

Defensive tackle Chris Jones earned even more bonuses against the Ravens, but Baltimore's chippy style made him earn it. Jones exited a pair of drives nursing apparent injuries. A late trip from Ravens quarterback Justice Hill knocked Jones out of one drive and hampered him for the rest of the game. Fans will have to wait to see how severe Jones' injury is, but he was in pain during the Kansas City victory. As a pending free agent, he needs more time to heal and solidify his legacy with the Chiefs.
