Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Kadarius Toney isn’t expected to play in Super Bowl LVIII against the San Francisco 49ers, sources told Adam Schefter of ESPN.
The Chiefs didn’t list Toney on the injury report. He hasn’t played a game since Week 15 against the New England Patriots, recording two receptions for five yards. Toney failed to eclipse 35 receiving yards in a contest this season.
“We’ll see,” head coach Andy Reid said Tuesday when asked whether Toney would play in the Super Bowl. “(Toney’s) been practicing, we’ll just see whether he’s up or not.”
Kansas City put Toney on every injury report between Week 16 and the conference championship versus the Baltimore Ravens with either hip or ankle injuries. However, the 25-year-old claimed ahead of the Chiefs’ previous playoff contest that he was healthy.
Toney was crucial in Kansas City’s 38-35 victory over the Philadelphia Eagles in Super Bowl LVII. He caught a touchdown pass and returned a punt 65 yards to set up a touchdown early in the fourth quarter.
The Chiefs acquired Toney in a trade with the New York Giants in October 2022 for third- and sixth-round picks in the 2023 NFL Draft. He has 430 total scrimmage yards in 20 games with Kansas City.
