It’s been an interesting couple of weeks for Toney, who was listed as out for the AFC Championship Game against the Baltimore Ravens for personal reasons and hip injury.

A few hours before the game, Toney took to his Instagram to push back on the idea that he was missing the game due to injury.

“Well, obviously it’s been on the injury report. That part is not made up by any means,” Reid told reporters. “He’s been working through some things, and he’ll be back out there.”

On Monday, Toney suggested that his rant before the AFC Championship Game would be directed at fans of the New York Giants – Toney’s old team – and not the Chiefs.

“I never attacked the Chiefs, I never said anything about the Chiefs. It was the Giants fans and the people in my comments, my comment box, even on the live taping so you wouldn’t even know they were there,” Toney said, via ESPN.

“But I was referring to them, which I shouldn’t have. I just wanted to go out there. I just wanted to get my message across as far as my injury, but at the end of the day I shouldn’t have done that. I’m human, and I can accept my mistakes just like I accept my wins. I just ‘move past that right now. We’re trying to go out and try to win. [the Super Bowl].”
