Chiefs Injury News: Joe Thuney Avoids Huge Injury

Thuney is an instrumental part of Kansas City's offense. He's the most dependable lineman and against a defense as ferocious as Baltimore's, the Chiefs need every edge they can get.

It remains to be seen if Thuney will suit up, but avoiding a tear of any muscle allows the opportunity to return to the field.

The Chiefs are underdogs to the Ravens despite Patrick Mahomes' sterling record in the postseason, though Thuney's availability plays a big role in Kansas City's chances to usurp Baltimore.
