Tyreek Hill’s hamstring injury reportedly considered minor
Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Tyreek Hill is dealing with another injury that forced him to leave Monday night’s game against the Los Angeles Chargers, but he may not miss any time going forward.
Hill had an MRI on his hamstring this week and the results showed the injury is minor, Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports. With the Chiefs having a bye this week, it seems likely that Hill will be ready to go in Week 13.
#Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill’s hamstring injury was deemed minor, source said. More like one a player would have in training camp and be cautious with. He’s considered day-to-day and with the bye, there is a real chance he doesn’t miss any time. He wanted to go back in vs. #Chargers.

Hill is an important part of Kansas City’s offense and one of the most explosive playmakers in the NFL. He has 33 catches for 543 yards and three touchdowns this season despite missing several games early on in the year with a collarbone injury.
Hill scored 14 touchdowns a year ago, and he showed off his elite speed recently by somehow catching up to a teammate who was sprinting to the end zone for a touchdown. With Patrick Mahomes now back and finally looking healthy, the Chiefs need Hill on the field to fulfill their offensive potential.
