Tyreek Hill Injury Updates

Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill (hamstring) put in a full week of practice and isn't listed on the final injury report. He's an elite Week 13 fantasy play vs. Oakland's flammable secondary.

Chiefs HC Andy Reid is "optimistic" about WR Tyreek Hill's availability for Sunday's game against the Raiders after he exited the Week 11 win over the Chargers with a hamstring injury. "I think he'll be all right," Reid said. "We'll see how it goes." Hill can be penciled into Week 13 fantasy lineups for now. We'll track his practice participation throughout the week.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport hears that Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill's hamstring injury was "deemed minor." Hill is considered day-to-day and has a "real chance" to be ready after the Week 12 bye, per Rapoport. We'll keep an eye on Hill when Kansas City returns to practice next week.

Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill (clavicle) will play against the Texans today, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Hill was able to maintain his cardio while rehabbing from this injury, and we haven't heard anything about him being on a snap count today. You'd need to be loaded at WR to consider benching Hill in season-long fantasy leagues.

Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill (clavicle) will be a game-time decision for Sunday's tilt with the Texans. He practiced all week, but it sounds like he's still awaiting final medical clearance. The good news is that we'll get Hill's official status by noon ET on Sunday. If he's active, he'll return to must-start status. The nature of his injury means he should be a full-go once he's cleared. If Hill is out, Kansas City will roll with WRs Demarcus Robinson, Byron Pringle and Mecole Hardman.

Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill is expected to miss 4-6 weeks with his collarbone injury, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. That timetable would have him back as early as Week 6 or as late as Week 8. Kansas City's bye isn't until Week 12. We'd hang on to Hill in all fantasy leagues. He should return to WR1 status as soon as he's back on the field. WR Sammy Watkins and TE Travis Kelce will get target boosts with Hill out. We like rookie Mecole Hardman to be the 2nd most productive Chiefs WR, with Demarcus Robinson as the #3.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport hears that the Chiefs are still evaluating WR Tyreek Hill's injury, with "options ranging from missing a few games to IR/designated to return." The latter move would knock Hill out until at least Week 10. We'll stay on top of the situation, but Chiefs WRs Mecole Hardman and Demarcus Robinson are both worth adding off waiver wires this week.

Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill does not need surgery on his injured shoulder but is expected to miss "a few weeks," ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. Chiefs head trainer Rick Burkholder revealed that Hill is dealing with a sternal clavicular joint injury. It sounds like fantasy owners should prepare to be without him until at least Week 5. Hill's absence elevates WR Sammy Watkins to the top of the Chiefs' depth chart. Demarcus Robinson and rookie Mecole Hardman are next in line and are worth speculative adds in deeper fantasy leagues.

Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill had to go to the hospital to have his shoulder injury treated by the trauma department, according to insider B.J. Kissel. We don't yet have other details regarding Hill's injury or how long he'll be sidelined, but it doesn't sound like this is minor. We'll update Hill's status as we learn more.

Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill left Tuesday's practice with an apparent right leg injury, according to The Athletic's Nate Taylor. We'll keep an eye out for more on the situation.

Update: ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports that it’s merely a bruised quad and that the team expects Hill to be “fine."

Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill (heel, wrist) is active for tonight’s game against the Chargers. He played through the injuries last week — effectively — and got in a couple of limited practices this week. He comes with more risk than usual tonight but still boasts big upside.

Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill (heel, wrist) is listed as questionable for Thursday night's game against the Chargers. He played through this injury last week and got in limited practices on Tuesday and Wednesday. Hill is fully expected to play tomorrow night, but we'll find out for sure around 7 pm ET.
