The Kansas City Chiefs activated wide receiver Skyy Moore off injured reserve on Wednesday, ahead of the Super Bowl LVIII matchup Sunday with the San Francisco 49ers.

The Chiefs designated Moore to return from injured reserve during the playoffs and had until Wednesday, when the 21-day window closed, to activate him or he would go on the season-ending IR.

Moore, 23, has not played since a 27-17 win at the New England Patriots on Dec. 17, when he had no targets and aggravated the knee. He was initially injured a week earlier in a 20-17 home loss to the Buffalo Bills without recording a catch. For the season, he has played in 14 games (eight starts) and caught 21 passes for 244 yards and one touchdown.

The Chiefs selected Moore in the second round (45th overall) of the 2022 NFL Draft out of Western Michigan. He has 43 receptions for 494 yards and one TD, and has rushed six times for 47 yards in 30 games (11 starts).

Kansas City placed defensive end Charles Omenihu, 26, on injured reserve after he tore his ACL during the AFC Championship Game victory against the Baltimore Ravens.
