The veteran was placed on injured reserve in December after suffering a groin injury in December and missed the rest of the regular season and all three of KC’s playoff games. He was a limited participant in practice throughout the week and was officially activated off IR on Saturday.
Even though McKinnon is active, he will most likely get just a few touches in tonight’s game. The veteran was third on the running back depth chart behind Isiah Pacheco and Clyde Edwards-Helaire before his injury. He recorded just 21 carries for 60 yards and a touchdown during the regular season. He made a bigger impact as a pass-catcher, hauling in 32 targets for 192 yards and four receiving TDs.
Coming off a groin injury, I wouldn’t expect him to be much of a fantasy threat as he should be used for a limited number of drives.
