“Optimism” Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill Returns In Week 6


Ian Rapoport reported Friday on Good Morning Football that there is “optimism” that Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill returns for their matchup with the Texans this Sunday. 

“Similar to the Sam Darnold situation, feelings are one thing, but tests and scans are another thing,” Rapoport said. “They are going to scan the bone, make sure that it has healed properly, make sure it’s safe for him to be out there.”

Rapoport added that Hill will have a scan today and if all goes well, he should be cleared to play this weekend. 

The Chiefs could use Hill’s presence on offense, as they’ve had some struggles in recent weeks.

Hill has been sitting out with a clavicle injury suffered Week 1.

Hill, 25, is a former fifth-round pick of the Chiefs back in 2016. He was entering the final year of his four-year, $2.58 million contract when the Chiefs signed him to a new three-year $54 million extension a few months ago that includes $35.2 million guaranteed.

In 2018, Hill appeared in 16 games for the Chiefs and caught 87 passes for 1,479 yards receiving and 12 touchdowns to go along with 151 yards rushing and a touchdown. Hill also totaled 213 punt returns and one touchdown. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 7 receiver out of 117 qualifying players.

We’ll have more regarding Hill as the news is available.
