Wide receiver Kadarius Toney flashed his ability to make plays for the Chiefs in Week 10, but another one of the traits associated with the 2021 first-round pick reared its head in Week 11.

Toney has had problems staying healthy since entering the NFL and he hurt his hamstring against the Chargers. He was out for Sunday’s win over the Rams and head coach Andy Reid said on Monday that the team will monitor things this week because they don’t want to bring Toney back too soon.

“Yeah, so he’s working hard at getting back and we are being cautious with it,” Reid said, via Charles Goldman of USAToday.com. “We’ll see how he does this week as we go forward with it. We’re going to try not to bring him back and then have any setbacks after that. We don’t want to go through that.”

Toney had a hamstring earlier this season as well and only played two games for the Giants this season before being traded to the Chiefs. His new team will be hoping that his availability improves in the weeks to come.

  1. When a rebuilding team wants to get rid of a former 1st round draft pick in his second year, that should tell you more than enough about that player.

  2. Toney injured himself on that horrible surface in New Jersey which has injured numerous NY Giant players, (like Barkley) and his hamstring is still tender from that disasterous experience.

    He’ll get healthier playing on Arrowhead grass and even on better artificial surfaces than that used rug at the Met. Plus the Chiefs training staff is one of the better units in the league.

    Come playoff time, Toney will be playing and performing for the Chiefs and the Giants fans will still be salty.

  3. I agree, better it get a 3rd rounder than nothing, but you also gave up a 1st rounder for him, just last year…. You gave a 1st KC gave a 3rd. Surely there was something that made y’all take him that high.
