Tyreek Hill scheduled for MRI on hamstring injury for Chiefs
By Matt Conner
The Kansas City Chiefs have scheduled for wide receiver Tyreek Hill to have an MRI later this week to figure out the extent of his hamstring injury.
The Kansas City Chiefs might not know for a few days just how long wide receiver Tyreek Hill will be forced to sit with a hamstring injury—or if he even will at all. The wide receiver is scheduled for an MRI in the next day or two, per NFL reporter Mike Garafolo.
The Chiefs are fresh off of a win over the Los Angeles Chargers in Mexico City on Monday Night Football. Typically a player can get right in for an MRI immediately after the game, which is typically a Monday morning routine so that teams have fresh injury news by late Monday. Given the Chiefs international travels as well as the late primetime game in Week 11, Hill’s status won’t be known for a bit.
Hill was forced to leave the game during the first quarter when he pulled up holding the back of his leg. Hill was quickly attended to by trainers on the sideline before he was taken to the locker room. Hill later returned to the sideline but failed to re-enter the game from that point forward.
Unfortunately for Hill, the game on Monday was yet another missed contest in what is turning into a forgettable season for Hill. The wideout already suffered a clavicle injury that kept him out for four-plus games to open the season. In the last two weeks, Hill has put up nearly 300 receiving yards but now he’s dealing with another injury. Here’s hoping the fact that the Chiefs enjoy a bye in Week 12 can help Hill not have to miss any more time on the field in 2019.
Hill has 33 catches for 543 receiving yards and 5 touchdowns on the year for the Chiefs.
