It looked pretty bad for a few minutes.

Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Tyreek Hill was carted away from Tuesday’s training camp practice in St. Joseph, Missouri with what appeared to be an injury to his right leg.

ESPN NFL insider Adam Schefter was able to get some preliminary information about the injury.

It started with a collision with Chiefs cornerback Bashaud Breeland, as our Pete Sweeney explained.

Longtime Arrowhead Pride user Scott Mahurin caught the hit on video.

It happened right in front of friend-of-the-site Matt Derrick of Chiefs Digest.

Hill was taken to the medical tent, where his helmet and jersey were removed as trainers worked on the leg. Eventually he was loaded on a cart and taken back to the locker room. From this point, Hill was done for the day.

But as our in-house sports medicine expert Aaron Borgmann noted, there were some encouraging signs about the whole thing.

Borgmann also said that the quad injury Schefter was reporting — while painful — would be much easier to manage.

Reid was not scheduled speak to the media after Tuesday’s practice, but per Terez Paylor of Yahoo! Sports, the Chiefs have confirmed that Hill’s injury is a bruised quad.

We will keep you updated.
