Hill injured his collarbone in the Chiefs 40-26 victory over the Jaguars

NFL: Kansas City Chiefs at Jacksonville Jaguars Douglas DeFelice-USA TODAY Sports

Pro Football Talk’s Mike Florio is reporting that Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Tyreek Hill suffered an injured collarbone and “is undergoing tests to determined the extent of the injury.”

Hill was hurt on this play:

The Chiefs first said Hill was questionable to return — then later ruled him out, which is typically not a good sign.

Then we have this from NFL Network reporter James Palmer, who said that Hill was taken to a local hospital for treatment,

That didn’t sound encouraging, either. But Palmer then reported additional information.

If we are interpreting Palmer’s tweet correctly, it means that there were concerns Hill’s injury might have been quite serious — such as when Chiefs quarterback Alex Smith lacerated his spleen — but for now, it appears those concerns were unwarranted.

Chiefs head trainer Rick Burkholder made a statement after the game with additional information, as reported by NFL Network insider Ian Rapoport.

Then this report from ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

Hill made just two catches for 16 yards before leaving the game. The Chiefs won the Week 1 matchup 40-26.

We’ll have more information as it becomes available.
