Tyreek Hill has troubling remark about his injured foot
Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Tyreek Hill made one of the biggest plays of the day on Sunday to help his team defeat the Baltimore Ravens, but there are some questions surrounding his health going forward.
Hill suffered a foot injury during the game and was seen limping at times. He credited Kansas City’s training staff for doing a “tremendous job” wrapping the area, but he admitted he was in pain.
“My foot’s bad,” Hill said following the win, per Peter King of NBC Sports. “Our people did a tremendous job wrapping my foot. I was still feeling my heel, but at the same time, I knew that man, if you want the W, if you want to be a great receiver, this is your moment to make plays.”
The Chiefs found themselves trailing 24-17 with less than two minutes left. On 4th-and-9, Hill and Patrick Mahomes connected for a 48-yard completion that kept the drive alive. Kansas City tied the game and ended up winning in overtime.
While it is encouraging that Hill was able to contribute despite describing his foot as in “bad” condition, the Chiefs have another important game coming up against the Los Angeles Chargers on Thursday night. The dynamic playmaker won’t have much time to heal up for that, and Kansas City is already thin at the wide receiver position because of another key injury. Hopefully the training staff will be able to work some magic for Hill on a short week.
