Kadarius Toney’s hamstring injury that sidelined him for several games while with the New York Giants earlier this season re-emerged in Week 11 and sidelined him for over a half of the Kansas City Chiefs’ primetime win over the Los Angeles Chargers. It also forced him to sit out the entirety of the Chiefs’ Week 12 win over the Los Angeles Rams.

Hamstrings can be tricky, which is why the Chiefs have proceeded with caution when it comes to their newly-acquired receiver. Head coach Andy Reid gave an update on Toney during his presser on November 29 as the 23-year-old attempts to return to practice in Week 13 after sitting out every practice in Week 12.

“Yeah, so he’s working hard at getting back and we are being cautious with it and we’ll just, we’ll see how he does this week as we go forward with it, but we’re going to try not to bring him back and then have any setbacks after that,” Reid said of Toney. “We don’t want to go through that. So, we’ll see, we’ll just see how it goes. Probably, Pete (Sweeney), I’d tell you day to day and we’ll just see where he’s at.”

Andy Reid Talks Chiefs’ Winning Ways

The Week 12 win for Kansas City improves the Chiefs’ record to 9-2, meaning that the team has had a winning regular season record in 10 straight seasons with Reid as the head coach. Reid also became the winningest head coach at Arrowhead Stadium (65) with the win over the Rams, passing former Chiefs head coach Marty Schottenheimer (64).

Big Red was asked about being a part of a decade of winning in Kansas City during his Monday presser.

“Yeah listen, it’s an honor, first of all, to have an opportunity to coach here just like it is for you guys to write about the Chiefs. It’s a great place to be, and it’s a great time. The main thing is when you’re sitting in the seat I’m sitting in is you got to keep winning, right? So, you don’t sit back and rest on those things, Matt (McMullen). You’ve been around me, I’m kind of, ‘Ok, that’s great. Let’s go onto the next one.’ And the next one ends up being the most important one. So, that’s where we’re at. I don’t want to slight the fact that a lot of you guys are from Kansas City and are proud of it and so, it’s great to have a winning program.”
