Kansas City Chiefs Wide Receiver to Miss Week 14

The Kansas City Chiefs will be without their trade deadline acquisition when they face the Denver Broncos in Week 14. According to theScore's Jordan Schultz, wide receiver Kadarius Toney will miss Sunday's AFC West showdown. Toney has missed seven games this season with a lingering hamstring injury, including two since being traded to the Chiefs at the end of October. He has totalled 102 yards from scrimmage and one touchdown in three appearances with the team.

Toney's absence shouldn't be a huge problem for the Chiefs' top-ranked scoring offense against a listless 3-9 Broncos squad. The Broncos defense has allowed the second-fewest points in the league and the third-fewest yards, but the Chiefs have demonstrated an ability to get by with whoever is available at wide receiver. Even trading All-Pro wide receiver Tyreek Hill this offseason hasn't appeared to slow them down.

Toney arrived with the Chiefs via trade with the New York Giants earlier this season in exchange for a 2023 third-round pick and a 2023 sixth-round pick. Though he hasn't shown much this year, the former 20th overall pick of the 2021 NFL Draft still has two years remaining on an affordable rookie contract, and a fifth-year option should the team decide to activate it. The Chiefs have plenty of time to recoup their investment.
