Chiefs have to “make sure everything’s stable” with Tyreek Hill’s shoulder

Chiefs wide receiver Tyreek Hill practiced in a limited capacity all three days last week, but did not make his return from a shoulder injury against the Colts on Sunday night.

The increase in activity matched with the chance to get in three more days of work ahead of a game against the Texans has led to speculation about a return in Week Six. Head coach Andy Reid didn’t rule that out on Monday, but he stopped well short of ruling Hill in as well.

“I’ll know more as we get through this week,” Reid said, via the Kansas City Star. “He practiced a little bit last week and moved around pretty good. But, again, they’ve got to make sure everything’s stable and he wasn’t being hit last week. So, they got to make sure everything is stable in there and they’ll work on that this week and see where we’re at.”

The Chiefs are coming off their least impressive offensive performance of the year, but they’ve been productive without Hill in other weeks and Reid rejected the suggestion that the wideout’s absence was responsible for the sluggish outing.

“He’s not causing penalties on the sideline,” Reid said. “We’re shooting ourselves in the foot, and like I told the guys, you figure it out and we get this thing straightened out, we’ll be right, a powerful, explosive offense whoever is in there.”

Hill’s presence would help on that front, but it will be some time before we know if he’ll be playing on Sunday.

  1. When the Chiefs get The Cheetah back, their offense will be even more terrifying than it is already. Cannot believe the amount of people who are calling them overrated after 1 loss!

  2. Every Andy Reid press conference: “cough, cough, we need to clean some things up, cough, and do a better job, cough, cough…that’s on me”

  3. Ya, we need to make sure your shoulder is 100%. As far as your off the field stuff, threatening women, children, beating your kid. Don’t worry about that, we got Roger Goodell to clear you,

    It’s all about pass rush..If you have one, you can beat KC. NE just brackets Hill. The jig is up.

    1. Bracket Hill on every single down.
    2. Blast into the backfield/but also set the edge on the strong side, to force him to the weak side to throw across his body.
    3. Watch for him slipping up the middle to run with a spy like Jamie Collins.

    Gilmore on Watkins.

    The fact is, some teams have these kinds of pieces and knowledge to slow down the Chiefs and NE set the blueprint last January. The only time KC moves the ball was on phantom PI calls or calls like Off PI and illegal picks downfield that mysteriously went uncalled but now CAN BE CHALLENGED as part of replay.

    Gotta get that revenue spread around to other markets outside of NE and to stop ratings from falling every year!

    lol

  6. Since October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month; Andy, Kansas City, Roger and Clark are more like hiding him…

    Watching the Sunday night it was pathetic how much Roger and the Refs tried to give the game to Kansas City, but idiot Andy still messed it up against a team with rookie safeties, the second string QB and one receiver.
