One of the best wide receivers in the NFL hasn't played since Week 1 of the season, but that could change soon.
Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Tyreek Hill suffered a significant shoulder/chest injury against the Jacksonville Jaguars in the season-opener. After a brief stay in the hospital, Hill left with his shoulder in a sling.
He didn't stay in the sling for long, though. Head coach Andy Reid said the team had a hard time keeping Hill off the field during his recovery.
With this latest report, it looks like they won't have to.
According to NFL Network insider James Palmer, Hill ran routes before the Chiefs' game against the Detroit Lions this afternoon. Palmer suggested Hill will be evaluated this week for a potential return next weekend.
It's a remarkable recovery considering the severity of the injury. Hill suffered a sternal clavicular joint injury which is where the clavicle protrudes into the sternum - which can lead to serious complications.
Luckily, Hill did not suffer from any complications and he was able to leave the hospital shortly after entering.
Now it looks like the team could have him back sooner than initially anticipated.
Detroit and Kansas City kick off at 1:00 p.m. ET.
