Hill caught five of 10 targets for 80 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday's 31-24 loss to the Texans.
Returning from a five-week absence, Hill quelled any concerns about his health with a beautiful leaping catch which he turned into a 46-yard touchdown early in the first quarter. He led the team in targets, catches and receiving yardage as well, later adding a six-yard touchdown grab that briefly put his team ahead. Barring any setbacks, Hill appears to be fully ready to contribute in Thursday's game against the Broncos.
The Chiefs will 'rotate in' Hill (shoulder) for Sunday's game against the Texans, Fox's Jay Glazer said on their Sunday morning pregame show.
Glazer went on to discuss how Hill's injury was unique, as the fractured clavicle was directed inward towards his lungs and heart, which is the opposite of most similar fractures.
Hill (shoulder) is active for Sunday's game against the Texans, BJ Kissel of the Chiefs' official site reports.
The Chiefs cleared Hill to return from a four-game absence after his shoulder checked out fine following a pregame workout, which was preceded by three limited practice sessions earlier in the week. While Kansas City will get one of its top weapons in the passing attack back Sunday, the extent of Hill's role coming off the sternoclavicular injury isn't fully known. At the very least, Hill's return should help compensate for the loss of fellow starting receiver Sammy Watkins (hamstring), who is sitting out for the first time this season.
Hill (shoulder) went through a pregame warmup and is expected to suit up Sunday against the Texans, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.
Hill put in limited practices during Week 6 prep after getting cleared from his sternoclavicular joint injury, putting him into a position to return. That said, the Chiefs wanted him to get through the aforementioned workout Sunday because he tended to some lingering discomfort as he ramped up his workload. Hill's snap count is to be determined, especially with another game on tap Thursday in Denver, but Patrick Mahomes nonetheless will have his top wideout at his disposal for the first time since Week 1.
Hill (shoulder), who is listed as questionable and was previously labeled as a game-time decision for Sunday's tilt with the Texans, is trending toward playing, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.
Sidelined since Sept. 8 with the sternoclavicular injury he suffered in the season-opening win over Jacksonville, Hill returned to practice in limited fashion Wednesday through Friday. Though he's been cleared from the injury, Hill still experienced some residual soreness during practices, so he'll be put through a pregame workout as a final test before the Chiefs render a verdict on his status. Official word on Hill's availability (or lack thereof) will come 90 minutes before the 1 p.m. EDT kickoff, when the Chiefs will release their inactive list. Even if Hill suits up, there's a chance his role could be limited to some degree coming off a five-week absence.
