The Kansas City Chiefs lost one of their best in wide receiver Tyreek Hill against the Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday. Hill sustained a shoulder injury when Jaguars cornerback Jalen Ramsey hit him out of bounds in the first half.
The hit forced Hill to miss the rest of the game; after, he was transported to a nearby hospital. Chiefs head coach Andy Reid wasn’t pleased with that, as he said after the game, via Matt Derrick of ChiefsDigest.com:
“I’m not sure that was the cleanest of plays.”
Hill finished the game with two receptions for 16 yards and five yards on a rush attempt.
Luckily, Hill won’t miss extended time, as it’s reported that he will miss a few weeks as he will not have to surgery. After the game, the Chiefs head trainer updated reporters on Hill’s status, saying, per NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport:
“Tyreek Hill had an injury in the game where he landed on his shoulder. He had a sternal clavicular joint injury which is where your clavicle comes into your sternum. Those can be injured coming out the front, up top or in the back. It goes posteriorly or back it becomes a medical issue for us so that we worry that there’s more problems.”
Burkholder mentioned that “he’s being treated there to reduce the dislocation or the injury.” As of now, it’s unknown exactly how much time he’ll miss.
Nonetheless, coach Reid can’t be happy about Ramsey’s hit on Hill that will put him out a few weeks of action.
