Friday update: Toney will not play against the Dolphins, per Jordan Raanan. The Giants will be without quarterback Daniel Jones and possibly Sterling Shepard once again. The Dolphins get a pretty good matchup this week.
Thursday update: Toney was once again working with trainers on the side Thursday, per Jordan Ranaan. He looks unlikely to play this week against Miami.
New York Giants wide receiver Kadarius Toney did not participate in practice on Wednesday due his nagging quad injury. The rookie wideout appeared to be working on the side with trainers.
In other non-Daniel Jones injury news, WR Kadarius Toney was going to work with trainers today. Seems like he will miss another game.— Paul Schwartz (@NYPost_Schwartz) December 1, 2021
WR Sterling Shepard at least stretched the team. Perhaps he has a better shot to play in Miami.
Like his contemporaries in the Giants receiver room, Toney has been banged up at various points throughout the 2021 season and has missed multiple games this year. The rookie playmaker was forced to miss Sunday’s 13-7 victory over the Philadelphia Eagles due to this very ailment and the prospects of him starting in this week’s road battle at the Miami Dolphins don’t look great.
Toney was last in action in their 30-10 Week 11 loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Monday Night Football, catching seven of 12 targets for 40 yards in the loss.
Fantasy football implications
Fantasy managers should continue to monitor his status as the week rolls on. If he misses practice on Thursday, then that’s the time to start making backup plans.
