Smith-Schuster in, Toney out for Chiefs matchup with Rams


(610 Sports) – The Kansas City Chiefs received a mixed bag of wide receiver injury news on Saturday, as they prepare to face the Los Angeles Rams on Sunday.

According to Ari Meirov of Pro Football Focus, JuJu Smith-Schuster has passed concussion protocol and will be active. On the flip-side, wide receiver Kadarius Toney will be held out with a sore hamstring that he aggravated during the Chiefs' Week 11 win over over the Chargers.

While the team will miss having Toney available as both a pass-catcher and return man, the offense should still produce at a high-level against the Rams. Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs feature the top offense in terms of points and passing yards per game.

A big reason the offense is continuing to function so well following the departure of All-Pro receiver Tyreek Hill, would be the offseason addition of JuJu Smith-Schuster, who has tallied 615 receiving yards on 46 receptions to go along with a pair of receiving touchdowns. Smith-Schuster has asserted himself as the team's top pass-catching option behind tight end Travis Kelce.
