Chiefs trainer Rick Burkholder describes Tyreek Hill’s injury
The good news for Chiefs wide receiver Tyreek Hill is he won’t need surgery after sustaining an injury during Sunday’s season-opening win at Jacksonville, Florida.
The bad news: there is no set time for Hill’s return from the injury, which was diagnosed as a “sternoclavicular joint injury.”
For now, Hill won’t be going on injured reserve, but Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network reported Wednesday that Hill will miss a minimum of four weeks.
Hill was hurt in the first half of Sunday’s game, and a fellow NFL wide receiver reached out to the Chiefs star.
Here is what Vikings receiver Stefon Diggs tweeted to Hill:
