The Kansas City Chiefs' dynamic offense might be getting its most explosive playmaker back soon. The latest update on Tyreek Hill is encouraging.

Hill suffered a sternoclavicular joint injury in Week 1 and sat out last weekend's game. He was originally expected to miss 4-to-6 weeks.

However, ESPN's Adam Teicher said Hill was not wearing a sling in the locker room today and was actually able to dribble a basketball using his injured arm.

All in all, promising signs for KC fans.

The Chiefs play the Baltimore Ravens in an AFC showdown this weekend. Assuming Hill is out for that game, it will be interesting to see if he can return for the game against the Detroit Lions on September 29.

That would have him back in three weeks, one week less than the early part of the original healing window.
