Controversial Chiefs Wide Receiver Expected to Be Ruled Out for Super Bowl LVIII After Social Media Drama Goes Viral

Share

Last year, Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Kadarius Toney was a star in his team’s Super Bowl victory.

This year, with his star in eclipse, he expected to do nothing more than watch the Chiefs as they take on the San Francisco 49ers in Super Bowl LVIII, according to ESPN, which cited a league source it did not name.

Toney has not played for Kansas City since Week 15 of the season.

Toney was not listed on the injury report as the game approached.

“We’ll see,” Chiefs head coach Andy Reid said last week when asked about Toney, according to the Sporting News.

“We’ll just see whether he’s up or not,” he said, later adding, “He’s been working through some things, and he’ll be back out there.”

Although Toney has not made any news on the field, he made plenty off of it last month, according to Sports Illustrated.

Are you a Chiefs fan?

He was sidelined for the Jan. 28 AFC Championship game with what was reported to be a hip injury, but during an Instagram Live video said, “I’m not hurt, none of that. Hip, knee, nuh-uh.”

Toney’s anger and his language made it appear he was attacking the Chiefs, but he said he would never do such a thing.

“I guess it got interrupted. So, it got a mixed message. I guess you could say then a lot of footage got chopped up and released. So, it made it like I was attacking the one [Chiefs] I love the most. I’d never attack the Chiefs, never say anything about the Chiefs. Who I was referring to was the Giants fans, people in my comments,” he said.

Writing on NBC, Mike Florio suggested that the Chiefs were hoping to quietly shelve Toney, whom Kansas City obtained from the New York Giants, who had soured on any hopes of Toney living up to his potential.

“The circumstances suggest that the strategy, if this was a low-key suspension, was to subtly nudge him away from the team for the rest of the year, and then to try to trade him in the offseason,” Florio wrote.

“Toney’s camp, which could have fought the move, likely would have been inclined to go along in order to get along, hopeful that silence and the passage of time might lay the foundation for Toney to get the second fresh start of his career. Even if Toney would have been in the right, the last thing he needs is to be involved in another controversy,” he wrote.

“Will someone else be sufficiently smitten by his skills to give him a shot? We’ll find out as soon as the middle of March,” he wrote.


A Note from Our Deputy Managing Editor:

 

“We don’t even know if an election will be held in 2024.” Those 12 words have been stuck in my head since I first read them. 

 

Former Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn recently made that comment to Floyd Brown, founder of The Western Journal. 

 

And if the leftists and the elites get their way, that’s exactly what will happen — no real election, no real choice for the Electoral College, and no real say for the American people. 

 

The Western Journal is fighting to keep that from happening, but we can’t do it alone.

 

We work tirelessly to expose the lying leftist media and the corrupt America-hating elites.

 

But Big Tech’s stranglehold is now so tight that without help from you, we will not be able to continue the fight. 

 

The 2024 election is literally the most important election for every living American. We have to unite and fight for our country, otherwise we will lose it. And if we lose the America we love in 2024, we’ll lose it for good. Can we count on you to help? 

 

With you we will be able to field journalists, do more investigative work, expose more corruption, and get desperately needed truth to millions of Americans. 

 

We can do this only with your help. Please don’t wait one minute. Donate right now.

 

Thank you for reading,

Josh Manning
