Pacheco rushed the ball 18 times for 59 yards in Sunday's 25-22 overtime win over the 49ers. He added six receptions on six targets for 33 yards.

Pacheco had a rough day on the ground, with his worst moment coming early in the second quarter when he lost a fumble at the 49ers' nine-yard line. He did manage a better performance as a receiver, including two receptions on the Chiefs' game-winning drive in overtime. Though it was an underwhelming performance in the Super Bowl, Pacheco proved capable of handling a workhorse role throughout the 2023 regular season, as he tallied career-high marks in both carries (205) and receptions (44) across 14 games. The Chiefs may add to the backfield this offseason, but Pacheco should keep a significant role in the offense in 2024.

Ready for Super Bowl

RotoWire Logo Published: 2024-02-09

Pacheco (toe/ankle) doesn't have an injury designation for Super Bowl LVIII against the 49ers on Sunday.

During the first week of Super Bowl prep, Pacheco was contained to a pair of limited sessions and ended it with no designation for the big game. He proceeded to have no practice limitations this week, meaning he'll be good for his typical workload Sunday. Over the last five contests, including the Chiefs' three postseason wins, Pacheco has averaged 21.8 touches for 94.4 yards from scrimmage and one touchdown per game. Having said that, Jerick McKinnon (groin) is questionable for Sunday's game after the team designated him for return from IR this past weekend, so Pacheco could yield some passing-down reps to the combo of McKinnon and Clyde Edwards-Helaire this weekend if the former is activated Saturday.

In clear after first week of SB prep

Pacheco (toe/ankle) was limited at Friday's practice but doesn't have an injury designation after the first week of prep for Super Bowl LVIII against the 49ers.

Prior to the AFC Championship Game this past Sunday, Pacheco managed just one capped session due to toe and ankle injuries but eventually was deemed active for that contest, earning 28 touches for 82 yards from scrimmage and a rushing TD in a 17-10 win at Baltimore. He remained on the Chiefs' practice report this week, being listed as a non-participant on Wednesday's estimate before ending it with back-to-back limited sessions. Pacheco has one more week to get ready for this year's Super Bowl, so even if he has restrictions on his on-field work next week, he appears set to serve as Kansas City's primary option on the ground on Sunday, Feb. 11.

Limited in Thursday's practice

Pacheco (toe/ankle) was a limited participant in practice Thursday.

He was listed as a non-participant on Wednesday's estimated report but then managed to take part in Kansas City's first actual practice ahead of the Super Bowl. Pacheco handled 80 percent snap share and 28 touches in the AFC Championship Game against Baltimore, leaving little doubt he'll be ready for a matchup with the 49ers next Sunday.

Getting in some work

Pacheco (ankle/toe) appears to be practicing Thursday, Pete Sweeney of reports.

He was listed as a non-participant on Wednesday's practice estimate, but there isn't any real concern about Pacheco's availability for the Super Bowl after he played through the same toe and ankle injuries in a 17-10 win over the Ravens this past Sunday. He took 80 percent of Kansas City's snaps on offense and accounted for 28 of the 31 backfield touches.

Listed as DNP

Pacheco (toe/ankle) is listed as a non-participant on Wednesday's practice report estimate.

The Chiefs didn't actually practice three days after beating Baltimore to advance to the Super Bowl. Pacheco took 28 touches in the AFC Championship Game and didn't appear to aggravate either of his injuries, so he should be fine for the Super Bowl against San Francisco next Sunday and figures to see plenty of the ball again.

Shoulders 28 touches in AFCCG win

Pacheco (toe/ankle) turned 24 carries into 68 yards and a touchdown while catching all four of his targets for 14 yards in Sunday's 17-10 AFC Championship win over the Ravens.

The Chiefs held Pacheco out of most of this week's practice sessions for maintenance after picking up a minor toe injury in the win over the Texans in the divisional round. The physical tailback suited up as expected and set a new high-water mark in touches (28) that he had just set two weeks prior in the wild-card win over the Dolphins. Pacheco is clearly Kansas City's top backfield option and he is seeing the type of workload that reflects that. Those characteristics are what give Pacheco strong fantasy potential heading into Las Vegas for Super Bowl LVIII on Feb. 11.

Active versus Ravens

Pacheco (toe/ankle) is listed as active for Sunday's AFC Championship Game against the Ravens.

After being held out of practice both Wednesday and Thursday, Pacheco was able to log a limited session Friday and approached Sunday's contest officially listed as questionable. With his active status confirmed, Pacheco is on track to continue to pace the Chiefs' backfield versus Baltimore in the absence of any in-game setbacks, with Clyde Edwards-Helaire available to mix in and La'Mical Perine in reserve. During Kansas City's divisional-round win over the Bills last weekend, Pacheco was on the field for 72 percent of his team's snaps on offense, en route to rushing 15 times for 97 yards and a touchdown, while catching his lone target for 14 yards.

Expected to play Sunday

Pacheco (toe/ankle) is expected to play in Sunday's matchup with the Ravens, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Pacheco drew a questionable designation due to both a toe and ankle injury, but it looks like he is trending towards playing Sunday. He was a non-participant in practice for consecutive days to start the week before logging a limited session Friday. It remains to be seen if he will see a full workload he will see if he indeed gets the green light. Clyde Edwards-Helaire would be the primary beneficiary should Pacheco be limited in any way.
