Kadarius Toney, the wide receiver for the Kansas City Chiefs, will not be playing in Super Bowl LVIII unless there is a significant change in circumstances. According to sources from CBS Sports, Toney has had some setbacks this season, including injuries and personal reasons that have kept him out of the field since Week 15. Additionally, he has struggled with a low number of catches and a high drop rate compared to other receivers.
Despite his recent struggles, Toney was able to make a memorable play in last year’s Super Bowl with the Giants. However, his contract is up next year, leaving the possibility that he may not return to the Chiefs after this season. In Week 1, Toney made a mistake that resulted in a touchdown for the Lions, and further errors 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.
Super Bowl LVIII can be viewed on CBS and Nickelodeon and streamed on Paramount+. Despite his recent struggles, Toney’s performance in last year’s Super Bowl with the Giants shows that he has what it takes to shine on the big stage.
