Kadarius Toney’s 2023 season came to a sudden end on Dec. 17, leaving him with only 27 catches for 169 yards and a touchdown. Despite reports suggesting that his lack of playing time was due to personal reasons and a hip injury, it was later revealed that the hip injury may have been fabricated.
Despite this revelation, Toney will practice with the Chiefs and a decision on his game status for Super Bowl LVIII on Sunday will be made at a later date. It has been a rough season for Toney, with critical drops in the season opener, a dropped pass intercepted by the Patriots, and an infamous offsides penalty that nullified his go-ahead touchdown.
As he enters his final year of his rookie contract, Toney’s future remains uncertain. The uncertainty surrounding his performance could lead to him being cut from the team or traded to another team. It is clear that Toney needs to work hard and improve if he wants to secure a long-term future in the NFL.
