NFL Network reports update on Tyreek Hill’s status

Mike Garafolo said Hill’s hamstring injury should be considered “minor.”

Supporters of the Kansas City Chiefs were alarmed with the news that wide receiver Tyreek Hill left practice early on Thursday due to a hamstring issue. Those concerned can breathe a sigh of a relief thanks to a report from NFL Network’s Mike Garafolo on Thursday night.

As Garafolo notes, the team could play it safe, which would match my expectation. I’d anticipate Hill getting at least Friday off, if not more. At this stage of his career, he could do more harm than good by participating in training camp while he has an injured hamstring, even if the injury is concerned minor.

Fellow receiver Sammy Watkins hasn’t practiced in several days due to a groin injury, so Kansas City is currently down its top two receivers. The duo has about three weeks to recover in order to be ready for the season-opener against the Houston Texans.

Hill had 58 catches for 860 yards and seven touchdowns during the 2019 regular season.
