The New York Giants have recently gotten some good news on the availability of second-year wide receiver, Kadarius Toney entering training camp.

Yesterday afternoon, it was reported that Toney will not start camp on the Physically Unable to Perform list. This is big for the young 23-year-old. Gaining as many reps as possible, especially in a new offense under head coach Brian Daboll is valuable to Toney’s development.

Daboll and Joe Schoen met with the media this morning. Daboll stated that Toney has “been great.” He finished by stating on the injury front that “the plan was set in place,” and now Toney is on the practice field “without a red jersey, ready to practice.”

The New York Giants are much better with Kadairus Toney available:

For Toney to avoid going on the Physically Unable to Perform list after the injuries he had last year leading to surgery is very encouraging. Daboll did also speak on the way Toney approached the work and attacked his rehab, “he’s done the rehab he’s needed to do, he’s been working hard in the meeting rooms.”

On the field, Daboll talked about the value of Toney now simply gaining experience. He said, “Come in, get the plays, know what to do, go out there and execute them.” Toney has all the talent to be one of the Giants’ best players and a consistent leader of their offense. Now, staying on the field will be crucial to his growth.

As fourth-year quarterback Daniel Jones enters a make-or-break season, having Toney available throughout will be key. Toney offers 4.3 speed, versatility, and the ability to be dynamic after the catch. Having Toney, along with other talented skill-position players in Saquon Barkley, Kenny Golladay, Sterling Shepard, and Wan’Dale Robinson, give the Giants a chance to be a potentially good offense in 2022.
