The Kansas City Chiefs defeated the Baltimore Ravens, 17-10, in the AFC Championship Game on Sunday but former New York Giants wide receiver Kadarius Toney wasn’t there to enjoy it with his teammates.
A day prior, the Chiefs had ruled Toney out due to a hip injury and “personal reasons” following the birth of his daughter. He did not travel with the team.
But that explanation did not sit well with Toney, who unloaded on the Chiefs just before Sunday’s kickoff, making an all-too-familiar claim.
“Y’all reading all this cap-(expletive) (expletive)? You didn’t believe it, I don’t give a (expletive),” Toney said on his Instagram live. “Ain’t never been a (expletive) to do all that but man, that (expletive) cap.
“I’m not hurt. None of that (expletive). Save that (expletive). Suck my (expletive), too. I’m not hurt. None of that. It goes from hip to ankle to this to that.”
Toney last suited up for the Chiefs in Week 15 when he dropped a pass that hit him right in the hands, leading to a Patrick Mahomes interception. The veteran quarterback fumed and it was the last anyone saw of Toney.
The issues are similar to those he had in New York. Toney was inconsistent on the field, repeatedly hurt, and spent a lot of his time griping with fans and claiming the Giants were lying about his injuries.
Toney was selected 20th overall in the 2021 NFL draft but it didn’t take the Giants long to realize they had made a mistake. He was shipped off to the Chiefs in October of 2022 in exchange for a third- and a sixth-round pick in the 2023 NFL draft.
This latest outburst could spell the end of Toney’s NFL career.
