Friday afternoon update: The Giants have officially ruled Kadarius Toney OUT for Week 17 vs. Chicago.

Friday update: Toney was on the stationary bike instead of practicing and is likely out. Kenny Golladay will be the main target in an awful offense.

Thursday update: Toney once again wasn’t available to practice on Thursday.

The New York Giants have dealt with a slew of injuries throughout the season and Week 17 is no different with another long injury report. Among the many on that report is rookie receiver Kadarius Toney, who is not practicing Wednesday due to a shoulder issue.

Fantasy football implications

This is a new injury for Toney, who has dealt with a variety of issues in his rookie season. The Giants could not have envisioned how this year would play out for them on the injury front, so the goal now is to get to the end of the season without major setbacks. Toney had four catches for 28 yards against the Eagles in Week 16, but is in danger of missing the Week 17 contest against the Bears if he cannot overcome the shoulder problem. The Giants are such a mess offensively that it’s hard to trust a receiver from this team in any fantasy format, so there may not be many fantasy implications to Toney’s injury at the moment.
