Kadarius Toney’s 2023 season took a dramatic turn when he ended it early on December 17th. Since then, he has not played and finished the year with just 27 catches for 169 yards and a touchdown. Toney will not be part of the active roster for Super Bowl LVIII on Sunday.
There were reports that Toney’s lack of playing 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 challenging season, marked by 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. With only one more year left on his rookie contract, Toney’s future remains uncertain.
