The hamstring injury Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Tyreek Hill suffered during Monday night’s game against the Los Angeles Chargers has been “deemed minor,” per NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport.

Rapoport added that Hill is considered “day-to-day” and with the upcoming bye week, he may not miss any time. The hamstring injury happened just seven minutes into the game.

The Chiefs traveled back to Kansas City late Monday night into Tuesday, and NFL Network’s Mike Garafolo initially reported Tuesday that Hill’s MRI would happen in “the next day or so.”

Rapoport’s training camp note, along with him reporting that Hill wanted to go back into the game would lead you to believe he should be OK moving forward with 13 days off.

The Chiefs also might have been extra cautious with Hill due to the field conditions at Estadio Azteca in Mexico City. Regardless of what the NFL said after the game, it was easy to see the field was a beat up, as players on both sides were losing their footing all game long.

With Kansas City’s week off, Andy Reid’s next scheduled media opportunity is Monday, November 25, and the Chiefs’ next official injury report will be released on Wednesday, November 27.

How Hill is listed ahead of the Raiders game will be the indicator to watch.
