Friday update: Tyreek Hill did not practice on Thursday, but returned on Friday in a limited capacity. He is officially listed as limited for Sunday’s game against Washington, per Dan Graziano.

Wednesday update: Hill’s injury was first reported as a knee injury, but now it’s being called a quad contusion, which sounds better at least. He wasn’t at practice on Wednesday, so he will still need to be monitored, but initial reports have him likely to play through this injury in Week 6.

Monday update: Hill suffered a minor knee injury and the team doesn’t expect him to miss any time, per ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

The Kansas City Chiefs were soundly beaten on Sunday Night Football by the Buffalo Bills and to heap injury onto defeat, their top wide receiver hurt his knee, per NFL Network’s James Palmer. Coach Andy Reid didn’t give much actual information on the injury, but didn’t sound overly concerned.

The Chiefs lost starting running back Clyde Edwards-Helaire to a leg injury last night as well. He was able to walk to the locker room, but did so quite gingerly. Hopefully it isn’t a long term injury, but we should think of him as iffy for next week’s game against the Washington Football Team.

Hill’s injury is a mystery at the moment, as we didn’t see when it happened and we lack details. Unless news comes out earlier, we’ll need to wait until Wednesday’s first practice of the week to learn more. If Hill were to miss any time, Mecole Hardman, Byron Pringle, Demarcus Robinson and Josh Gordon would jockey for his targets.
