Wide Receiver Kadarius Toney
Q: How are you feeling?
A: Feeling pretty good.
Q: How's the ankle coming along?
A: Day by day, listening to the trainers, following the process.
Q: Do you think you'll be ready for Monday?
A: I mean, it's day by day. You know what I'm saying? Listening to the trainers, so we'll see when it's game time.
Q: How much were you able to do today?
A: I was able to do enough. Progress, you know.
Q: Do you feel like you're getting close to being your normal, explosive self or how close are you?
A: I feel like I'm just progressing day by day, really.
Q: I don't think we've talked to you since you got hurt, so three catches on that opening drive, it felt like a monster game was coming. Did you feel that way and what were your thoughts when you got hurt?
A: Just me following the game plan. Just making plays within the system. It took a lot of preparation for knowing the looks that we were going to see and executing, mainly.
Q: Can you hide an ankle roll? I mean you cut, you move, you do on it – does it have to be 100 percent for you to be out there?
A: You said does it have to be 100 percent? I mean, playing this sport here, you're never going to be fully 100 percent. Anybody could go out with an ankle injury (and) you wouldn't really know. I feel like there's a lot of light shed on my ankle. Like I said, it's a day-by-day process and it's what I'm going to do.
Q: Have you had to deal with something like this before? Some guys are kind of used to it and they know what to navigate through. Has the ankle ever been a big issue for you?
A: No. It hasn't been a big issue, no.
Q: What happened on that play? Did your ankle get caught underneath?
A: I don't remember. Like it was somebody on the sideline maybe. I don't even remember.
Q: Did you think that was a late hit?
A: When? You're talking about on the play?
A: I don't make the judgement calls. I don't wear stripes – I just wear jerseys.
Q: If you can get back in the game on Monday Night, is it nice that it's on grass?
A: What do you mean?
Q: The field. Most players like playing on grass better, maybe a little bit less wear and tear on them.
A: No, not really. I mean, I can play on grass, turf, concrete, backyard, in the house, it doesn't really matter. It's still going to be the same game. It's really just how you go out there and play. Anything can happen. You can play in the parking lot and scrape your knee. You can do the same thing on grass or turf. It doesn't really matter the surface.
Q: Not everybody gets a fist bump from the team owner. What does that say to you about how important you are?
A: No, everybody does get a fist bump from the owner. A lot of stuff doesn't get seen around here. It's a family environment here. There isn't anybody who doesn't like anybody here. You know what I'm saying? Everybody – it's a good environment here, so that just shows you how cordial and how good everything is here.
Q: Are you a big – maybe not now since you're in the NFL, but the last four or five years, have you been a big (Chiefs Wide Receiver) Tyreek Hill fan? Do you watch him? Do you try to mold anything he does into your game? He's one of the best in the NFL. I don't want to put you in that category yet, but there are obviously some electric similarities.
A: No, not really. No. I really didn't watch football until probably like two years ago.
Q: Wait, what do you mean you didn't watch football until two years ago?
A: I just play. I just play and watch film. I don't really watch games and stuff.
Q: Even now, do you watch Monday Night Football every week?
A: Facts, yeah. (I've) got to.
