Chiefs Wide Receiver Exits With Hamstring Injury

The Kansas City Chiefs stole a thrilling 30-27 win over the Los Angeles Chargers with a dramatic game-winning drive in the final minute on Sunday Night Football, and they did it with a perilously thin pass-catcher group. Wide receiver Kadarius Toney exited in the first half with a hamstring injury and did not return. Toney aggravated his hamstring injury after 15 total snaps in Sunday's game. He has appeared in only five games for the New York Giants and Chiefs this season due to the troublesome injury. The Chiefs were also without wide receivers Juju Smith-Schuster and Mecole Hardman for the game.

The Chiefs acquired Toney at the trade deadline earlier this year from the Giants for a 2023 third-round pick and a 2023 sixth-round pick. The Chiefs should be fine without him should he miss time. They're the top-scoring team in the league.

Toney was the Giants' 20th overall pick of the 2021 NFL Draft, but injuries have kept him from becoming a consistent contributor so far in his career. He has totalled 15 appearances and 489 receiving yards in his time with the Giants and Chiefs.
