All-Pro wide receiver Tyreek Hill exits Kansas City Chiefs training camp practice early.
Though it is only the very beginning of August, you can feel the frustration by watching this video of Hill walk off towards the Chiefs locker room during training camp. The fastest player in the NFL was clearly laboring through something, as it look like a bit of struggle for him to walk to the locker room. Hopefully, this is nothing major, but the Chiefs should proceed with great caution here.
Here is the video of Hill leaving Chiefs practice early on Tuesday morning during training camp.
Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Tyreek Hill exits practice early due to injury
Though he can do way more than burn cornerbacks to a crisp on a football field, speed is, and probably always will be, the focal point of Hill’s incredible game. He has earned a Pro Bowl in each of his five seasons with the AFC West juggernaut, earning three First-Team All Pro nods as well. While he should be fine at some point during the preseason, Hill should not rush back from this.
If Kansas City wants to win the AFC for the third year in a row and get to the Super Bowl, they are going to need their most explosive receiving threat at or near full strength to do so. While they are the favorites to hoist the Lombardi Trophy at SoFi Stadium in February, the Chiefs will face stiff competition in-conference with the Baltimore Ravens, the Buffalo Bills and the Cleveland Browns.
Let’s hope Hill’s premature from Tuesday’s training camp practice was only a precautionary one.
