Former Texas Longhorns defensive end Charles Omenihu, now a starter with the NFL’s Kansas City Chiefs, went down with a knee injury yesterday following his sack of Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson. And while Omenihu said he intends to play in next month’s Super Bowl rematch with head coach Kyle Shanahan’s San Francisco 49ers, recent reports broke this afternoon that Omenihu tore his ACL and won’t be available to play.
Chiefs pass rusher Charles Omenihu tore his ACL in Sunday's victory against the Ravens, source confirms. Omenihu will obviously not suit up in Super Bowl LVIII against his former team, the 49ers. Tough blow for KC.— Jonathan Jones (@jjones9) January 29, 2024
