The wider NFL world seemed either unsurprised or uninterested in Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Kadarius Toney being ruled out for Sunday’s AFC Championship Game against the Baltimore Ravens. But he has a pretty good reason beyond just being injured.

Toney was listed on the injury report as “personal/hip” but we did not know what the “personal” was until NFL Network’s James Palmer revealed the reason: He just became a father.

“Kadarius Toney had his first child tonight. A baby girl. That’s where the personal part of his designation came from. He’s also dealing with a hip injury that is keeping him out tomorrow,” Palmer wrote on X.

Toney doesn’t have a ton of fans in the NFL due to issues with his attitude and his play on the field. But even his critics couldn’t resist the urge to offer the man congratulations on his newborn daughter:

“He gets a pass tonight! Congrats to him and his family,” one user replied.

“It’s a amazing blessing to have a child on your birthday…” another wrote, pointing out that today is also Toney’s birthday.

Of course, more than a few joked that they hope Toney doesn’t drop the baby…

You can’t please everybody.
