Kansas City Chiefs head coach Andy Reid spoke to the media on Monday, the first time he did so since the team’s bye week.

Chiefs wide receiver Tyreek Hill left the team’s last game against the Los Angeles Chargers after just a few plays due to a hamstring injury. On November 20, NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport said that the hamstring injury was “deemed minor.”

Reid said that he feels good about Hill getting back in the mix this week.

“I think he’ll be all right,” said Reid. “We’ll see how it goes, but listen, I’m optimistic. I know he loves to play the game and I think he’s been with (head trainer) Rick (Burkholder) a bit this past week. But he had some things he had to also take care of and so, I’ll see [Tuesday] how he handles things. He’ll get out and move around a little bit [Tuesday].”

The Chiefs resume practice in preparation for the Oakland Raiders on Wednesday — how the team designates Hill in its injury report will be a point to watch.

Hill missed four games between Weeks 2 and 5 with a posterior SC (sternoclavicular) dislocation. In just seven games this season, he has 33 catches for 543 yards and five touchdowns.

The Chiefs host the Oakland Raiders Sunday at 3:25 p.m. Arrowhead Time.
