According to a report from NFL network insider Ian Rapoport, Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Tyreek Hill will be back in action against the Houston Texans at Arrowhead Stadium on Sunday.

ESPN’s Adam Schefter said that Hill felt good doing pregame warmups.

In the week’s final injury report, Hill was listed as questionable — which was the best news there had been about the All-Pro wideout since he suffered a posterior sternoclavicular dislocation during the game against the Jacksonville Jaguars in the season opener. Hill was actually transported to a Jacksonville hospital, because this rare injury can be life-threatening. But once it was clear that Hill was safe, the prognosis was for a fairly quick recovery, as our in-house sports medicine expert Aaron Borgmann explained.

A recent example of a wide receiver with a similar injury would be Danny Amendola for the Rams in 2012. Game records show that he only missed three games (and a bye week) with a similar injury.

However, according to ESPN’s Dianna Russini, the Texans appear to have prepared for the game as if Hill would play.

Meanwhile, the Houston Chronicle’s Aaron Wilson is reporting that Texans wide receiver Kenny Stills will not be available for the game.

Wilson then reported that veteran Texans corner Johnathan Joseph will also miss the game.
