Kansas City Chiefs Wide Receiver Will Miss Week 13

The Kansas City Chiefs will be without their trade deadline acquisition for their Week 13 battle with the Cincinnati Bengals. Wide receiver Kadarius Toney is officially inactive for the pivotal AFC showdown. Toney has battled a hamstring injury for much of this season. He has appeared in five total games for the New York Giants and Chiefs this year.

The Chiefs acquired Toney at the trade deadline in exchange for a 2023 third-round pick and a 2023 fifth-round pick. He has nabbed six of his eight targets for 69 yards and a touchdown while adding two rushes for 33 yards in two appearances this year, but he just can't seem to stay on the field. He has played a mere 51 snaps since the Chiefs traded for him at the end of October.

Toney initially entered the league as the Giants' 20th overall pick of the 2021 NFL Draft. Either because of injuries or poor fit, the Giants quickly lost faith in the young wide receiver. The Chiefs pounced on Toney at a modest price with an eye to the future. Even if he struggles to contribute this season, he has three years remaining on an affordable rookie contract. The Chiefs will have plenty of chances to make a return on their investment.
