Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Kadarius Toney will not be active for Super Bowl LVIII, according to sources for CBS Sports. Despite his struggles this season, Toney made a significant play in last year’s Super Bowl LVII with the Giants. However, he has experienced some setbacks including injuries and personal reasons that have kept him off the field since Week 15.
Toney has struggled with a low number of catches and a high drop rate compared to other receivers this season. In Week 1, his mistake resulted in a touchdown for the Lions, and further errors in later weeks only added to the challenges he faced. An Instagram Live rant before the AFC Championship Game highlighted the difficulties Toney has increasingly faced, calling into question the trustworthiness that the Chiefs have in him.
Despite his recent struggles, Toney’s contract is up next year, leaving the possibility that he may not return to the Chiefs after this season. Super Bowl LVIII can be viewed on CBS and Nickelodeon and streamed on Paramount+.
