NY Giants first-round pick Kadarius Toney has been ruled out for Sunday’s game against Washington, ending his season 

Kadarius Toney’s season is over, as the NY Giants’ first-round pick was officially ruled out for Sunday’s season finale against the Washington Football due to a shoulder injury.

Toney, who was chosen with the No. 20 overall pick in the NFL Draft, after the Giants traded back from the No. 11 selection with the Chicago Bears, finishes his rookie campaign with 39 receptions for 420 yards. He did not catch a touchdown pass.

At times, Toney flashed explosiveness and elusiveness in the open-field, and after the catch, averaging 10.8 yards per reception.

However, injuries wreaked havoc on Toney’s rookie season, including an ankle injury and ultimately a shoulder injury that shut him down.

Toney’s season got off to an inauspicious start, when despite a vaccine being readily available, Toney tested positive for COVID-19 upon checking in for training camp this summer, and suffered lingering effects from the virus throughout training camp and the early portion of the season.

Later, the University of Florida alum tested positive for COVID-19 following a Week 11 loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Here is the NY Giants’ final injury report:

OUT: QB Mike Glennon (left wrist), WR John Ross (knee), WR Kadarius Toney (shoulder)

Questionable: FB Cullen Gillaspia (knee), OL Will Hernandez (ankle), WR Collin Johnson (hamstring)
