Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Tyreek Hill left Tuesday’s training camp practice at Missouri Western State University with an unknown injury — and after a lot of intrigue.
UPDATE: Following the practice, head coach Andy Reid said that Hill was suffering from tendonitis in his knee, so the team decided to hold him out of practice as a safety precaution.
Reports indicated that Hill came down the hill with his teammates fully dressed and ready for practice. But shortly after the session began, he was spotted in the medical tent with his pads off — lifting weights.
Yeah.. It doesn’t appear like Hill will do team work today. Wonder if something is bothering him and #Chiefs just being careful. To be updated as day goes on. https://t.co/3kmY2Xg2b7— Pete Sweeney (@pgsween) August 3, 2021
Then, he was seen with his pads back on — apparently ready to return to practice. But before long, he was observed walking back up the hill to the locker room.
And now Tyreek Hill is walking away from the practice fields & up the hill. https://t.co/0mBBGChm3O— Nate Taylor (@ByNateTaylor) August 3, 2021
The nature of the issue is not yet known. However, it’s always a good sign when a player leaves the field under his own power, rather than being returned to the locker room on a cart.
