Chiefs WR Hill (hamstring) misses practice
Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Tyreek Hill sat out Wednesday’s practice due to a hamstring injury, coach Andy Reid said.
Reid said Hill’s hamstring tightened up during the Week 15 game against the New Orleans Saints. Reid said Hill should be able to play against the Atlanta Falcons on Sunday.
“We’re taking Tyreek day-by-day,” Reid told reporters. “His hamstring tightened up on him a bit during the game. I think he’s going to be fine I just want to make sure that thing gets a rest here today and then we’ll just see how it goes tomorrow.
“If he needs a rest tomorrow, we’ll rest him tomorrow. He went through the walkthrough and did all of that. I think he’s going to be OK.”
Hill has 83 receptions for 1,211 yards and has an NFL-best 15 touchdown receptions this season.
Hill was named a Pro Bowler for the fifth time earlier this week.
Reid said rookie running back Clyde Edwards-Helaire (ankle) wasn’t injured seriously in the game against New Orleans. Edwards-Helaire, who has rushed for 803 yards, isn’t expected to play in the team’s final two regular-season games.
“He’s working at it,” Reid said. “I mean, he’s ahead of schedule and that’s a good thing.”
Linebacker Damien Wilson (knee) also missed practice. He has sat out the past two games.
Right tackle Mike Remmers (back) was a full practice participant. He missed the game against the Saints.
Also, linebacker Anthony Hitchens was placed on the COVID-19 list on Tuesday and has a slight chance of being active on Sunday.
