Chiefs wide receiver Tyreek Hill may not miss any games with a hamstring injury, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL.com. Hill underwent an MRI and it revealed the injury is more similar to one that would make a team cautious during training camp, per Rapoport. Luckily for the Chiefs, their bye this week allows them to be extra careful with their star receiver and still have him back on the field for their next game.
Hill left Kansas City’s game against the Chargers on Monday Night Football and did not return. However, according to Rapoport, he tried to convince his coaches to put him back in. Luckily for the Chiefs, they managed to pull out a 24-17 victory despite the absence of one of their biggest weapons.
The Chiefs electric offense has worked around Hill’s absence in a few games this season, but is surely at its best with one of the best deep threats in football healthy. While he has played in just seven games this season (including his short appearance on Monday), Hill has still managed to amass 543 receiving yards on 33 receptions.
