Kadarius Toney's rookie season with the New York Giants is off to a rough start to say the least. Through the first two games of his pro career, the Florida product has lost two yards combined on a pair of catches.

Giants fans thought Toney expressed his frustrated with his role in New York on Thursday night since he posted this message on Instagram: “I don’t be mad s*** just be lame to me for real."

It didn't take long for Toney to respond to everyone asking about that message. On Friday afternoon, the Giants' first-round pick tweeted "Y'all try to turn anything into something, SMH we good over here."

Judging by that tweet, Toney's bizarre post on Instagram had nothing to do with his role in Joe Judge's offense. However, it's possible that he's just trying to dismiss any rumors to avoid creating tension between him and the coaching staff.

That wasn't all Toney had to say about the way the public reacted to his cryptic Instagram message. Toney also posted a message on Instagram for the media, writing "Media sum clowns...but I'm above dat...Literally."

Toney's father, Dana Toney, spoke to the New York Post about his son's rough start. He said the family is trusting the process when it comes to Toney's playing time.

“We just have to trust the process of the organization — and I’m not wavering from that,” Dana Toney said, via the New York Post. “None of that other stuff is true. We enjoyed ourselves at the Meadowlands last Sunday, and I look forward to coming back. The Giants were beautiful toward us. Our team is going to be good.”

Perhaps we'll see Toney's role expand next week when the Giants take on the Falcons.
