He is expected to play on Sunday against the Kansas City Chiefs in Super Bowl LV at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Florida. It’ll be surprising if Winfield Jr. doesn’t start against the Chiefs.
“The ankle is feeling good,” Winfield Jr. said, according to Carmen Vitali. “I’m gonna play the game. It’s 100% go.”
Winfield Jr. will be one of the men responsible for defending Tyreek Hill, the Chiefs’ star wide receiver. He’ll try to stop Hill from going deep.
There’s also a good chance that Winfield Jr. may be switched onto tight end Travis Kelce. It’ll be interesting to see how Buccaneers defensive coordinator Todd Bowles will deploy his defensive troops against the Chiefs’ offensive attack.
Back on November 29th, the Chiefs escaped with a 27-24 win against the Buccaneers in Tampa. Kansas City had 543 yards.
Hill had 269 yards in the game – including more than 200 in the first half – and three touchdowns. He had 119 yards on two first-quarter touchdowns.
If Winfield Jr. isn’t 100%, Chiefs head coach Andy Reid and offensive coordinator Eric Bieniemy will target him. They may also target Lavonte David and Jordan Whitehead, who are also nursing injuries.
Winfield Jr., Whitehead, and David were limited in practice on Wednesday. Whitehead is dealing with a shoulder and knee injury, while David is dealing with a hamstring injury.
