Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill Out 'A Few Weeks' With Injured Shoulder

By , RADIO.COM Sports

The first major injury of Week 1 is a pretty big one.

Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Tyreek Hill will be out a few weeks, per ESPN's Adam Schefter, after he was carted off the field with a collarbone injury in Sunday's win against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Hill was taken to the hospital where it was determined he had a dislocation where the sternum meets the clavicle.

Hill, 25, was hit by Jaguars cornerback Jalen Ramsey near the sideline before he was evaluated by the team’s traning staff. He had two catches for 16 yards before he was forced to exit the game.

The Chiefs and Hill had just agreed to a three-year, $54 million contract extension earlier in the week, which included $35.2 million in guaranteed money.

Hill is one of the most dynamic players and productive wide receivers in the league. He has had over 1,100 receiving yards in each of the last two seasons and led the NFL with 27 receptions of 20 yards or more last season. He had the fourth-most receiving touchdowns last year with 12, too.

With Hill out, it was Sammy Watkins who got the chance to step up and he certainly delivered.

Quarterback Patrick Mahomes had already connected with Watkins for a 68-yard touchdown earlier in the game, but the play after Hill was hurt on the two connected again for a 49-yard touchdown.

It was just part of a monster day for Hill, who finished with nine catches for 198 yards and three touchdowns on the day.

Hill was not the only significant injury in the Chiefs game.

Jaguars quarterback Nick Foles was ruled out for the rest of the game after he took a vicious hit on a touchdown pass early in the first quarter.

Mahomes also gave fans a scare, leaving the game briefly with a limp, but he managed to return to the field.
