Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Tyreek Hill did not practice on Wednesday after suffering a quad contusion on Tuesday. As we explained in Tuesday’s report, this was to be expected. Chiefs head coach Andy Reid said “there’s a chance” that Hill returns to training camp practice on Friday.
Running back Marcus Marshall, who injured his groin on July 29, was back on the practice field.
Cornerback Bashaud Breeland practiced for the second day in a row. Breeland suffered a lacerated right thumb back on July 27 and is now wearing a protective cast.
“I feel great,” he said Wednesday. “Ain’t nothing but a little finger, a little scar. Ain’t gonna hurt.”
Breeland was also asked about his collision with Hill that caused Hill’s quad contusion.
“Man, I didn’t even see him in my line of fire,” Breeland said. “I was just going to make a play on the ball. It’s unfortunate that we had [that] type of collision because he’s a vital piece of this team. It wasn’t intentional in no way, shape or form. It’s just football — you get some nicks and bruises sometimes, but I’m just glad he’s able to come back from it.”
With Damien Williams still sidelined due to a hamstring issue, Carlos Hyde, Darwin Thompson and Darrel Williams all saw first-team reps at running back. Safety Jordan Lucas, who is also dealing with a hamstring issue, did not practice.
The day off on Thursday could be the reason wide receiver Gehrig Dieter and offensive lineman Mitch Schwartz held off from their returns on Wednesday. Dieter and Schwartz, both suffering from back issues, should be back in the mix when Chiefs camp resumes on Friday.
