KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Tyreek Hill will miss four to six weeks due to an injury he sustained during Sunday’s game against the Jacksonville Jaguars, according to a report.
NFL reporter Ian Rapoport tweeted Tuesday morning that sources told him Hill would not be placed on injured reserve.
#Chiefs 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.— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) September 11, 2019
Instead, trainers will closely monitor his rehabilitation efforts.
Depending on his progress, Hill could return to the field in less, or more, than six weeks, according to Rapoport.
Hill was taken to a Jacksonville hospital after he suffered a “sternoclavicular joint injury,” according to the team’s head trainer.
Chiefs Kingdom has been anxiously awaiting more news on him since.
Placing Hill on injured reserve would have made him ineligible to play for the next eight weeks.
