The Super Bowl LV Injury Report for the Kansas City Chiefs vs. Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Friday, Feb. 5, 2021.

Patrick Mahomes, Chiefs QB

Before the Tampa Bay Buccaneers face the reigning Super Bowl champions, Kansas City Chiefs, in Super Bowl LV, let's examine the Friday injury report.

The big names listed on Friday's report are Bucs wide receiver Antonio Brown (knee) and tight end Cameron Brate (back) are questionable for Super Bowl. Both are vital components to the Tampa Bay offensive gameplan. If Brown cannot be in the Bucs' lineup, they will miss his speed, deep-threat capabilities, and connection with Tom Brady. 

DT Ndamukong Suh (not injury related) did not practice on Friday with the team.

Brate's injury could be more of an issue for Tampa Bay, especially with being thin at tight end. Brate is a solid blocker and provides Brady an outlet for third-downs to extend drives. Bucs' safeties Antoine Winfield, Jr. (ankle) and Jordan Whitehead (shoulder) made the Bucs' full practice on Friday.

No Buccaneers' players have been reported OUT for Super Bowl LV.

The Chiefs did not have any major surprises other than running Darren Thompson (illness) did not practice in Friday's workout. Tackle Eric Fisher (Achilles) and linebacker Willie Gray (knee, ankle) are out for the contest. 

Running back LeVeon Bell (knee) and wide receiver Sammy Watkins (calf) returned to full participation on Friday after being limited in Wednesday and Thursday practices.

The Bucs will continue to monitor the health of WR Antonio Brown and TE Cameron Brate.
