Kadarius Toney’s season took a turn when he effectively ended his 2023 season on December 17th. Despite playing only nine games, he managed to make 27 catches for 169 yards and a touchdown. Toney reportedly won’t be part of the active roster for Super Bowl LVIII on Sunday.
There were reports that Toney’s lack of play time was due to personal reasons and a hip injury. However, it was later revealed that the hip injury may have been fabricated. Despite this, Toney will practice with the Chiefs and a decision on his game status will be made later.
Toney had a difficult season with critical drops in the season opener, a dropped pass that was intercepted by the Patriots, and an infamous offsides penalty that negated his go-ahead touchdown. Now, with only one more year remaining on his rookie contract, Toney’s future remains uncertain as he struggles to find consistency in his performance.
