Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Kadarius Toney suffered a hamstring strain in his last game. He will likely struggle to come back and compete in Week 12.

Toney was listed as doubtful of returning by the Chiefs shortly before halftime in their Week 11 game against the Los Angeles Chargers. It came after the Chiefs saw him leave the game with a hamstring injury in the second quarter.

After the contest, head coach Andy Reid confirmed that Kadarius Toney had indeed suffered a hamstring injury. The type of injury kept him out of many games while he was still playing for the New York Giants to start the season. However, Reid did not elaborate on the extent of Toney’s injuries.

Less than a day after Toney’s hamstring issue, NFL Media’s Ian Rapoport provided a status report on the matter on Monday, Nov. 21.

While Toney’s illness was classified as a strain, Rapoport did not provide a specific date for the return. This is excellent news, because it could have been much more catastrophic. Rapoport said Toney would “run out a little bit” after that.


Kadarius Toney’s stats and fantasy prediction

It would be a blow to the Chiefs offense without Mecole Hardman and JuJu Smith-Schuster if Kadarius Toney were to be out for a few weeks. Still, fantasy players will be looking for a Toney replacement. Although Marquez Valdes-Scantling has struggled this year, youngster Skye Moore is an interesting alternative after playing his best game of the year in Week 11.

In a dramatic victory over the Los Angeles Chargers, the Kansas City Chiefs once again demonstrated their superiority over the competition. The club moved to 8-2 thanks to the dominance of Patrick Mahomes and Travis Kelce.

Before leaving the game, Kadarius Toney failed to register a reception on a single target. In only his second outing with Kansas City, he scored the first touchdown of his career in the team’s win over the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Toney was forced to sit out five games this campaign so far with two different hamstring injuries before the New York Giants cut ties with him. Several injuries plagued his time with the Giants, only managing to play in 12 of a possible 24 games over the two seasons before being traded.
