Kansas City Chiefs defensive end Chris Jones said Thursday he expects to play without restriction in Super Bowl LIV against the San Francisco 49ers.

Jones has nursed an ailing calf throughout the playoffs, with the injury preventing him from playing in Kansas City's 51-31 victory over Houston in the AFC divisional round on Jan. 12.

The 25-year-old recorded two tackles in the Chiefs' 35-24 victory over Tennessee on Sunday in the AFC title game.

When asked by NFL Network's James Palmer on Thursday if he can play every snap in the Feb. 2. Super Bowl if needed, Jones was quick with a response: "1,000 percent."

Jones registered a team-leading nine sacks to go along with 36 tackles and a forced fumble in 13 games during the regular season.

"I think he feels pretty good," Chiefs coach Andy Reid said Wednesday of Jones. "He didn't have a setback so that was good."
