Reports: Chiefs acquire WR Kadarius Toney from Giants

The Kansas City Chiefs acquired wide receiver Kadarius Toney from the New York Giants on Thursday for a third-round pick and a sixth-round pick, ESPN and NFL Network reported.

Both picks are 2023. However, ESPN reports the third-round pick is conditional while NFL Network reports it’s a compensatory pick in Round 3.

A first-round pick in 2021, Toney has reportedly been battling a hamstring injury all season and hasn’t played since Week 2. He has just two catches for zero yards and two rushes for 23 yards.

In 10 games (four starts) as a rookie last year, Toney caught 39 passes for 420 yards.

Toney also saw 60 percent of his snaps from the slot in 2021 and could eventually become the Chiefs’ primary slot receiver.

Giants WR Kadarius Toney injures other hamstring

New York Giants wide receiver Kadarius Toney did not travel to England because of injuries to both hamstrings, head coach Brian Daboll confirmed Friday.

Toney will miss his third consecutive game when the Giants (3-1) face the Green Bay Packers (3-1) in Sunday’s Week 5 contest in London.

Daboll said Toney was making progress with the original hamstring injury that has plagued him since the preseason when he tweaked the other hamstring in practice Thursday.

Toney, 23, was limited to seven snaps in New York’s 21-20 victory over the Tennessee Titans in Week 1 and 28 snaps — with two catches for zero yards — in a 19-16 win over the Carolina Panthers in Week 2.

A first-round draft pick in 2021, Toney has just 41 catches for 420 yards and zero touchdowns in 12 career games (five starts).

Rookie receiver Wan’Dale Robinson (knee) and cornerbacks Justin Layne (concussion), Nick McCloud (hamstring) and Aaron Robinson (appendix) have been ruled out versus the Cowboys.

Report: Giants WR Kadarius Toney had knee procedure

New York Giants wide receiver Kadarius Toney reportedly is recovering from a minor knee procedure.

Toney was wearing a red no-contact jersey during organized team activities this week following arthroscopic surgery, but he is expected to be ready for training camp, the New York Daily News reported Saturday.

Toney, 23, was the Giants’ first-round pick (20th overall) in 2021. He caught 39 passes for 420 yards and no scores in 10 games (four starts) during his rookie season.

He got off to a slow start last season after a July stint on the COVID-19 list and missed six of the last seven games due to an ankle injury.

Report: Giants interested in trading WR Kadarius Toney

The Giants have reached out to other teams to gauge their interest in acquiring wide receiver Kadarius Toney, the New York Daily News reported.

Toney, the Giants’ first-round pick in 2021, has opted against participating in the team’s voluntary offseason program this week.

Per the Daily News, the Giants took issue with Toney’s commitment to the team and lack of preparation during an injury-riddled rookie season.

Toney dealt with bouts of COVID-19 as well as injuries to his ankle, hamstring, hand, oblique and shoulder in his first year with the Giants.

New coach Brian Daboll, however, wasn’t willing to overreact publicly to Toney’s absence on Wednesday.

“This is a voluntary camp,” Daboll said at the time. “The guys that are here, we’re going to work with. The guys that aren’t, they’re going to miss out on some things but it’s voluntary for the reason. That’s the nature of the rules. I’ve had good talks with KT.”

Toney, 23, appeared to dismiss the report with a post on his Instagram story Friday night.

“If you believe everything on the internet you (gullible),” Toney wrote.

Toney had 39 catches for 420 yards and zero touchdowns in 10 games last season, with 10 receptions for 189 yards coming in New York’s 44-20 loss to the Dallas Cowboys on Oct. 10. He was selected by the Giants with the 20th overall pick of the 2021 NFL Draft out of Florida.

WR Kadarius Toney absent as Giants open voluntary minicamp

New York Giants wide receiver Kadarius Toney was not in attendance during the start of the team’s voluntary offseason minicamp on Wednesday.

While it’s hardly considered breaking news for a player to skip offseason workouts, it should be noted that Toney — the team’s first-round pick in 2021 — spent a considerable amount of time on the sideline last season.

Toney dealt with bouts of COVID-19 as well as injuries to his ankle, hamstring, hand, oblique and shoulder in his first year with the Giants.

New coach Brian Daboll, however, wasn’t willing to overreact publicly to Toney’s absence on Wednesday.

“This is a voluntary camp,” Daboll said. “The guys that are here, we’re going to work with. The guys that aren’t, they’re going to miss out on some things but it’s voluntary for the reason. That’s the nature of the rules. I’ve had good talks with KT.”

Report: Giants WR Sterling Shepard to sit out vs. Raiders

Giants wide receiver Sterling Shepard is expected to sit Sunday when New York faces the Las Vegas Raiders, ESPN reported on Wednesday.

Shepard sustained a left quadriceps injury during the second quarter of the Giants’ 20-17 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs on Monday.

He isn’t the only Giants’ wideout nursing an injury.

Rookie Kadarius Toney, who leads the team with 343 receiving yards, sustained a laceration on his hand during Monday’s game. He is also dealing with an ankle injury.

Offseason acquisition Kenny Golladay has missed three straight games with a knee injury, and Dante Pettis injured his shoulder during a punt return against the Chiefs.

Shepard, 28, has a team-leading 32 catches to go along with 324 receiving yards and one touchdown this season despite missing three games due to hamstring injuries.

Shepard has 345 receptions for 3,842 yards and 21 touchdowns in 70 career games with the Giants. He was selected in the second round of the 2016 NFL Draft out Oklahoma.

Toney, 22, has 23 catches for 317 yards in six games since being selected by the Giants with the 20th pick in the 2021 NFL Draft.

Giants WR Kadarius Toney apologizes for throwing punch

New York Giants rookie receiver Kadarius Toney apologized Monday for throwing a punch and getting ejected from Sunday’s loss at Dallas.

“Wanna take the time out to apologize to the entire organization, Owners, My Teammates and the entire #BigBlue … your emotions just can get the best of you sometimes…..No Excuses just actions,” he posted on Twitter.

His fourth-quarter ejection in Sunday’s 44-20 loss in Arlington, Texas, came after a breakout performance by the 20th pick in the 2021 NFL Draft.

Toney, 22, set season highs with 10 catches for 189 yards and also rushed once for 7 yards. He has 20 receptions for 281 yards in five games this season.

After Cowboys safety Damontae Kazee tossed Toney to the turf after the whistle, Toney got to his feet and threw a punch at Kazee’s helmet. It happened with about six minutes left and New York trailing 34-13.

“There’s a pretty distinct line in terms of competing and doing things we’re not going to condone as a team and put us behind,” Giants coach Joe Judge said after the game. “That’s not going to be accepted. That’s not going to be condoned.”

NFL Network reported that Toney is likely to be fined but not suspended by the league.
