JuJu Smith-Schuster News
Kansas City Chiefs head coach Andy Reid said that wide receivers JuJu Smith-Schuster (knee) and Kadarius Toney (ankle, hamstring) "looked good" during a light practice on Tuesday. The Chiefs will test both receivers when more intensive workouts start on Wednesday. Toney said on Monday night that he will play in the Super Bowl on Sunday against the Philadelphia Eagles. Both Toney and Smith-Schuster were injured in the AFC Championship game against the Cincinnati Bengals and didn't practice at all last week. They were both listed as questionable, but as long as they are able to practice all this week, they should be active for the big game on Sunday. Smith-Schuster and Toney have been boom-or-bust for fantasy managers this year, although they could have more upside against Philly with Mecole Hardman (pelvis) on Injured Reserve.
Kansas City Chiefs wide receivers JuJu Smith-Schuster (knee) and Kadarius Toney (ankle, hamstring) both missed practice all week and are listed as questionable for the Super Bowl against the Philadelphia Eagles on Feb. 12. Smith-Schuster and Toney were both forced out of the AFC Championship early with injuries, but the Chiefs remain optimistic that they will both be available for the Super Bowl after another week to rest up. Mecole Hardman (pelvis) also missed practice all week and is doubtful to play in the big game, so if Smith-Schuster and/or Toney are limited or out for the Super Bowl, Marquez Valdes-Scantling, rookie Skyy Moore and Justin Watson would be asked to step up in the passing game.
Kansas City Chiefs head coach Andy Reid is particularly optimistic that wide receivers JuJu Smith-Schuster (knee) and Kadarius Toney (ankle, hamstring) will be able to play in the Super Bowl on Feb. 12 against the Philadelphia Eagles. "He's in a good place," Reid said about Smith-Schuster. Smith-Schuster and Toney have yet to practice this week, but they'll have another whole week to rest up before the big game. Smith-Schuster had just one catch for seven yards in the AFC Championship before getting hurt, while Toney had a nine-yard catch. We'll have a better read on their statuses for the Super Bowl next week, but with Mecole Hardman (pelvis) unlikely to play, it could mean more work for Marquez Valdes-Scantling, Skyy Moore and Justin Watson if Smith-Schuster and Toney are limited or out.
The Kansas City Chiefs signed JuJu Smith-Schuster to a one-year deal this offseason. He is looking to turn around his career after spending a large chunk of his 2021 season on injured reserve. He was limited to five games last year after undergoing shoulder surgery in mid-October. Smith-Schuster could not find the end zone and caught 15-of-28 targets for 129 receiving yards in 2021. The former WR8 from 2018 will be looking to rejuvenate his career with Patrick Mahomes and the explosive Chiefs...
