Hill overcame his multiple injuries to suit up, but he couldn't do much to help fantasy owners in their postseason contests. However, he came within one play of doing so, as Hill couldn't come up with a perfectly thrown bomb from Patrick Mahomes early in the fourth quarter on a play that he started by also committing an illegal shift. Hill has now sandwiched one- and four-catch efforts around a sensational 8-139 line against the Ravens in Week 14, and he'll look to bounce back to that caliber of production against the Seahawks in a Week 16 Sunday night showdown.
Hill was limited in practice Tuesday and Wednesday after toughing things out through a pair of injury issues in this past Sunday's 27-24 overtime win over the Ravens. He'll continue to do so Thursday and should remain a focal point in the Kansas City offense in Week 15, assuming no in-game setbacks.
Hill (heel/wrist) is expected to play in Thursday's game against the Chargers, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.
Hill is listed as questionable on the final injury report, but there isn't much doubt surrounding his active status for Thursday, after the Chiefs listed him as a limited practice participant both Tuesday and Wednesday. It is quite possible he deals with considerable pain during the contest, as was the case during Sunday's 27-24 win over Baltimore. Of course, Hill still managed to catch eight of 14 targets for 139 yards in the overtime victory, and he'll now face a Chargers defense that he burned for 7-169-2 back in Week 1.
Listed as a non-participant to start the week, Hill managed limited practices both Tuesday and Wednesday, seemingly putting him on track to play in Thursday's AFC West showdown. A cautious approach might normally make sense on a short week, but the Chiefs need all the help they can get with Sammy Watkins (foot) and Spencer Ware (hamstring) expected to miss the crucial game. A victory would essentially lock up the No. 1 seed in the AFC, while a loss would put the Chiefs in real danger of dropping to No. 5. The team will release its inactive list approximately 90 minutes prior to Thursday's 8:20 PM EST kickoff.
With eight receptions for 139 yards in the Week 14 overtime win over the Ravens, Hill came through with another big performance against a tough opponent, but not without getting banged up on a few occasions along the way. Hill has less time than usual to heal from the injuries with the Chiefs set to host the Chargers on Thursday in Week 15, but his involvement in Tuesday's session in any capacity seemingly backs up coach Andy Reid's optimism that the top wideout will be ready to play. The Chiefs will provide another update on his gameday status at the conclusion of Wednesday's practice.
