Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Tyreek Hill has returned to practice during training camp at Missouri Western University in St. Joseph.
Chiefs fans held their breath on Tuesday when Hill went down with what at first looked like a serious injury after a collision with cornerback Bashaud Breeland. Hill walked off the field limping and then spent time in the injury tent as trainers worked on his right leg.
Eventually, Hill returned to the locker room riding a cart, which raised fears he had suffered a serious injury. But ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported soon after that Hill merely had a bruised quad muscle — later confirmed by the Chiefs. On Wednesday, head coach Andy Reid said there was a good chance Hill would return to practice on Friday — and now he has.
But speaking of Breeland... for a while on Friday morning, it appeared he could have suffered a concussion during practice — as reported by ESPN’s Adam Teicher and our Pete Sweeney on the scene.

From afar, looks like Bashaud Breeland in tent undergoing concussion exam. Should receive official word follow practice. #Chiefs— Pete Sweeney (@pgsween) August 2, 2019
Breeland — one of the presumed starting cornerbacks — has already missed some practices with a thumb laceration. After cornerback Keith Reaser’s torn Achilles on Monday, the Chiefs could not well-afford another injury to the position group.
But after only a short time, Breeland was back on the field. — and Chiefs fans could let out their breath. Again.
Bashaud Breeland is coming out of the tent with his helmet. Deep sigh of relief for a cornerback group that can’t afford to lose anyone else.— Brooke Pryor (@bepryor) August 2, 2019
We’re likely to get more information about what occurred with Breeland when practice concludes. We’ll keep you posted.
