Tyreek Hill heads back to Kansas City after night in Jacksonville hospital

AP

The Chiefs headed home to Kansas City without wide receiver Tyreek Hill on Sunday night because Hill remained in a  Jacksonville hospital after suffering a sternal clavicular joint injury in the win over the Jaguars.

Medical personnel were concerned that the injury, which occurred at the spot where the clavicle comes into the sternum, could lead to other problems and wanted to monitor Hill overnight. All appears to be OK on that front because there are multiple reports that Hill is heading back to Kansas City on Monday.

A timeline for Hill’s return to action has not been put in place at this point. His fellow wideout Sammy Watkins said that he expected the team to be without Hill for seven or eight weeks.

If that’s accurate, a stay on injured reserve could be a consideration for Hill. Watkins, Mecole Hardman, Demarcus Robinson and Byron Pringle are the other wideouts on the 53-man roster.

  1. Aww poor guy. Feel really bad for him getting hurt and all. Oh wait, maybe he knows the pain his son feels now. Too bad he didn’t get the experience of the fear to go with it. Still can’t believe he’s in the league.

  2. Ramsey had an unsettled score from what??? Losing last year to the Chiefs? It’s not like Hill had that great of a game against him last year. Well, the Chiefs beat them again this year, so does that mean he still has an unsettled score? Ramsey was playing like a petty, cheap-shot artist all game. Serves him right to lose again. Sorry you are bitter that you just can’t beat the Chiefs!

  3. He will be well rested for the inevitable postseason. The one drawback to losing him for as long as 8 games is that the Chiefs may have to go to Foxboro for the AFCCG. Everyone gave the Chiefs the edge. The Pats lost Gronk. The Chiefs acquired Spags and upgraded the D. Then the Pats acquired Brown and now the injury to Hill.

    You forgot to subtract from the Chiefs for having Andy Reid at the helm in the postseason…

  5. Hill is a huge factor in any game. The NFL has always been
    a league known for its even competition. Smaller markets
    compete on and even playing field, unlike Major League Baseball.
    Despite the even playing field, I believe that players who have
    a “ checkered” history …or some type of prior, proven bad behavior,
    should be treated in a separate category. The Chiefs were able to draft
    Hill and Hunt, while other teams would not.
    There needs to be an even playing field so that all teams if they wish
    can take a chance on a player who has made mistakes.
    I am not criticizing the player himself, everyone deserves a chance.
    ( The other issue is the uneven discipline code set by Goodell, see
    the Zeke Elliot case) but clearly KC took advantage of bad situations
    when they drafted Hill and Hunt. Many coaches would have loved to draft
    Hill and Hunt.

  6. The Pat’s play the Chef’s in December so unless this injury is more serious than what Dr. Watkins is saying, Hill will be back by then. The more important issue is the Patriots O-line. They already lost their starting Center. Hopefully Marcus Cannon’s injury from last night is minor. With the additions to the Patriots Defense, I’m thinking the Chiefs could be making two trips to Foxborough this year, assuming they beat the other competition. Can the Patriots beat the Chef’s 4 times in a row? I think they have the QB, the fire power running and passing, and the defense to do it…. but we’ll have to wait and watch the games. 🙂

  7. I was really distraught to hear that Hill was hospitalized for his injury…….NOT!
    Karma is something you never want to mess with, she always wins in the end.
