LeSean McCoy reportedly likely to be inactive for Super Bowl LIV
LeSean McCoy has received almost no usage down the stretch for the Kansas City Chiefs, and that looks likely to continue for Super Bowl LIV.
According to Ian Rapoport of NFL Media, McCoy is likely to be inactive for Sunday’s game, with the Chiefs dressing two running backs and preferring to use the other available active roster spot on defense.
One storyline to watch for Super Bowl LIV: Sounds like #Chiefs RB LeSean McCoy may be inactive tomorrow, sources say. That’s the way it’s heading at this point. Two RBs would be active, but KC would use the spot to add depth on the D-line or another key area.

McCoy has gone from starting nine regular season games to getting one playoff snap. This will be the second time he has been inactive for a playoff game, as he didn’t factor in Kansas City’s AFC Championship win over Tennessee.
The veteran running back tallied 465 rushing yards this season, a career low. He had a big choice to make at the start of the year and opted to play in Kansas City. It may get him a Super Bowl ring, but he won’t have played a big part in the playoff run either way.
