Charles Omenihu, defensive end for the defending champion Kansas City Chiefs, will not participate in Super Bowl LVIII.
This is as a result of a torn ACL in his knee suffered in the second quarter of the American Football Conference Championship against the Baltimore Ravens.
The Chiefs will defend their NFL title on February 11 against the San Francisco 49ers at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas, Nevada, a game Omenihu will miss.
Omenihu made an outstanding play in last Sunday’s win over the Ravens, he caused a fumble and a catch on Lamar Jackson.
He will be a big miss for Andy Reid and Steve Spagnuolo’s defense against an electric offense like the one the 49ers have.
Omenihu was suspended for the first six games of the 2023 season for violating the NFL’s personnel code of conduct, having been arrested early last year on suspicion of a domestic violence offense, but he has since returned.
