Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Tyreek Hill will not need surgery on his collarbone but "will miss a few weeks," after suffering the injury Sunday, reports ESPN's Adam Schefter.
Hill was ruled out for the remainder of Sunday's win against the Jaguars due to a shoulder injury after he was hit near the sideline by Jaguars cornerback Jalen Ramsey. Hill had two catches for 16 yards before the injury.
Following the game, Chiefs head athletic trainer Rick Burkholder updated reporters on what the team did with Hill.
"[Hill] had a sternoclavicular joint injury which is where your clavicle comes into your sternum," Burkholder said. "Those can be injured coming out the front, up top or in the back. If it goes posteriorly or back it becomes a medical issue for us so that we worry that there's more problems. His came back posteriorly and he didn't have any medical issues but we still transported him to Baptist Medical Center [Jacksonville] and we turned his care over to Brett Frykberg who is an ortho-trauma physician."
Burkholder added that Hill is being treated to "reduce the dislocation or the injury" and the team didn't have any more updates on Hill's status beyond that. The team said there would be an update within the next day or two.
Hill, a first-team All-Pro selection last season, recently signed a three-year extension, worth $54 million.
