Hill went down within the Week 1 victory after being tackled by Jags corner Jalen Ramsey. He was taken to the hospital because of the injury as a precaution but his team does not plan to put him back on the Injured/Reserve, which would have kept him out of action for at least of eight weeks.

WR Tyreek Hill (sternoclavicular joint injury) is expected to miss 4-6 weeks, sources say. A positive sign: KC does not plan to put him on IR, as of now. He’ll need to be monitored in rehab, and how quickly it progresses will determine if it’s more or less than 6 weeks.”

The 25-year old speeder finished with only two catches for 16 yards and one rushing attempt for five yards just before exiting the game. According to HNHH Last season, Hill posted career-highs across the board with 87 catches, 1, 479 receiving yards and 12 touchdowns while earning First-Team All-Pro honors.

The famous NFL MVP Patrick Mahomes has lots of weapons at his fingertips on the Chiefs offense and it is also expected that rookie receiver Mecole Hardman will step into Hill’s part for how long he is left out.

coming up next for the Chiefs is another road game against the division rival Oakland Raiders, followed by their home opener against the Baltimore Ravens in Week 3.
