Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill comes back from quad injury, immediately scores TD
The Chiefs not only finished the first half going 1-2 in the red zone but they also turned the ball over three times, which included two interceptions thrown by quarterback Patrick Mahomes.
Injury issues also became a concern for the team in the half, as wide receiver Tyreek Hill was ruled as questionable for the remainder of the contest due to a quad injury.
Hill came into the game listed as questionable because of his nagging quad injury, which kept him out of Kansas City’s scheduled practice sessions on both Wednesday and Thursday. He did practice on Friday, although he was limited throughout the session.
Still, Hill shrugged off the injury and made for one dramatic return to the game in the second half.
Hill was a catalyst in the Chiefs’ key 68-yard touchdown drive in the third quarter. He caught four passes over the drive, which included the much-needed 2-yard receiving touchdown that gave Kansas City the lead in the game.

This sure is redemption for the speedster, especially following his costly red zone drop in the first half that gifted Washington cornerback back Kendall Fuller an interception.
The Chiefs sure need a win in this contest following their 2-3 start to the season.
