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.
Hill (heel/wrist) is slated to practice Tuesday, Adam Teicher of ESPN.com reports.
The extent of Hill's activity won't be known until the Chiefs release their report shortly after the session concludes, but it's a positive sign the wideout is getting in any work after he was listed as a non-participant on Monday's estimated practice report. With the Chiefs facing off against the Chargers on Thursday this week, Hill won't have much time to recover from the heel and wrist issues that he sustained in the Week 14 win over the Ravens, which prompted coach Andy Reid to label the 24-year-old as "day to day." For what it's worth, Reid seemed to express more optimism about Hill's availability versus Los Angeles when asked about the matter Tuesday, per Tom Krasovic of The San Diego Union-Tribune.
Hill (foot) was listed as a non-participant on Monday's injury report.
Hill left the field multiple times during Sunday's 27-24 win against the Ravens, after which it was revealed he played through a painful foot issue. Despite the limitations, he tallied eight catches (on 14 targets) for 139 yards and one carry for six yards. Upon an examination, Hill doesn't have a "serious" injury and will be deemed "day-to-day," according to Adam Schefter of ESPN. On Monday, coach Andy Reid offered a positive spin on Hill, telling Adam Teicher of ESPN.com that he believes the wide receiver will suit up Thursday against the Chargers. With just three days between games, it's no surprise Hill is kicking off Week 15 prep with a DNP next to his name, but ideally he'll fit in some activity Tuesday or Wednesday to provide confidence that active status is to be expected.
