On Sunday morning, the Kansas City Chiefs took the field at Missouri Western State University in St. Joseph, MO for their first full-team practice that was open to fans and the general public in attendance. While there were many positive standouts from camp workouts, there was also a bit of bad news on the injury front.

According to head coach Andy Reid, wide receiver Kadarius Toney tweaked his knee and had an early exit from practice.

Toney, who was acquired near last year's trade deadline in a surprising swap with the New York Giants, hauled in 16 passes for 171 yards and a pair of touchdowns in nine regular-season games as a Chief. With that said, he was on the field for just 23% of the team's available offensive snaps in those games and didn't always make the most consistent impression when active. Additionally, the 2021 first-round pick dealt with lower-body injuries that limited both his playing time and, in turn, his effectiveness despite him flashing some of his potential multiple times. 

During the Chiefs' early 2023 playoff run, Toney recorded seven catches for 50 yards and ran the ball once for 14 yards. Over the course of three postseason games, the 24-year-old also returned six punts. One of them was a key run-back in Super Bowl LVII against the Philadelphia Eagles, helping Kansas City get in position to pull away and ultimately secure a victory.

Toney wasn't the only member of the Chiefs' roster to deal with something injury-related. Reid said neither offensive tackle Wanya Morris (hamstring) nor defensive tackle Tershawn Wharton (knee) practiced with the team on Sunday. Morris was at practice but didn't have a helmet on, and Wharton remains on the physically unable to perform (PUP) list as he continues to work his way back from a torn ACL suffered early in the 2022 campaign.
