Hill didn't play in Friday's preseason win at Arizona due to a hamstring injury, Sam McDowell of The Kansas City Star reports.
EDGE Analysis
Hill was on the field during pregame warmups but didn't join the first-team offense on the first snap of the contest. Afterward, the reason for his absence was revealed, but the Chiefs considered the decision a precautionary measure. With Patrick Mahomes getting a fair amount of run in the team's first two exhibitions, he and the rest of the key skill-position players likely will take a seat next Friday against the Vikings, meaning Hill may not play in an actual game until Week 1.

Hill (knee) returned to practice Thursday, Adam Teicher of ESPN.com reports.
EDGE Analysis
Hill reportedly came back with a bang, catching a TD from Patrick Mahomes on his first target of practice. The speedy wideout initially was held out of Tuesday's practice with knee tendinitis, but it doesn't sound like any threat to his Week 1 availability.

Hill missed Tuesday's practice with knee tendinitis, Nate Taylor of The Athletic reports.
EDGE Analysis
Hill put on pads for part of Tuesday's practice and lifted weights in a tent on the sideline. He's missed just six games through five NFL seasons, including two absences from meaningless Week 17 contests. It doesn't sound like the knee tendinitis is any major threat to his track record of durability.

The Chiefs have open competition for roles behind Hill at wide receiver, Herbie Teope of The Kansas City Star reports.
EDGE Analysis
It's possible Sammy Watkins' departure leads to Hill and Travis Kelce handling even larger target shares, but the Chiefs likely prefer that another receiver -- namely Mecole Hardman -- steps up to the challenge. In any case, Watkins was far from a target hog in his three years with Kansas City, averaging 5.9 in 34 regular-season games (he missed 14). The biggest thing for Hill is simply that he and QB Patrick Mahomes stay healthy, as the 27-year-old speedster has been a top-five receiver (both real life and fantasy) whenever that's happened.

Hill caught seven of 10 targets for 73 yards during Kansas City's 31-9 loss to the Buccaneers in Super Bowl LV. He also had one carry for five yards.
EDGE Analysis
Hill dropped 269 receiving yards and three scores when he last met the Buccaneers in Week 12 of the regular season, and he went over 100 yards in each of the Chiefs' last two postseason games, so holding him to just 73 yards on 10 targets should be considered a huge victory for Bucs' defensive coordinator Todd Bowles. The constant pressure that Patrick Mahomes faced while trying to survive without both starting tackles heavily impeded Hill's ability to operate as a deep threat, but the 26-year-old also dropped a potential touchdown in the first half, and his average catch (10.4 yards) was his lowest of the playoffs. The soon-to-be 27-year-old logged six 100-yard performances during the 2020 regular season, plus a career-high 15 touchdowns en route to 87 catches for 1,276 yards. A relatively quiet Super Bowl performance won't do anything to take away from his status as one of the unquestioned top fantasy wideouts come 2021.

Hill reeled in nine of 11 targets for 172 yards during Sunday's 38-24 win against the Bills in the AFC Championship Game.
EDGE Analysis
During Kansas City's divisional-round win against the Browns, Hill and Travis Kelce became the second set of teammates in Chiefs franchise history to each eclipse 100 receiving yards in a playoff game, joining Ed Podolak and Elmo Wright (1971). Both Hill and Kelce surpassed the century mark again Sunday, with Hill's 71-yard catch-and-run in the third quarter very nearly providing his first score of the postseason. The three-time All-Pro has totaled 17 playoff receptions for 282 yards heading into a Super Bowl matchup on Sunday, Feb. 7 against a Tampa Bay defense that conceded nine catches, 67 yards and a TD to Green Bay's Davante Adams in the NFC Championship Game.

Hill caught eight of 10 targets for 110 yards and added nine yards on three rushing attempts in Sunday's 22-17 win over the Browns in the AFC divisional round.
EDGE Analysis
Hill had 78 receiving yards before Patrick Mahomes' (concussion) third-quarter departure, then made a circus 23-yard catch on a Chad Henne pass in the fourth, pressing the ball against his thigh to secure possession as he went to the ground. Hill saved his most important play for last, coming open for a five-yard catch to pick up 4th-and-inches and allow Kansas City to run out the clock. While Hill's stock would take a hit if Mahomes is unable to play in next week's AFC Championship Game against the Bills, the speedster still has the big-play ability to make a major impact, even without his starting quarterback.

Hill (hamstring) doesn't appear on Kansas City's injury report in advance of Sunday's divisional round playoff game against the Browns.
EDGE Analysis
Hill didn't play in Week 17 with Kansas City having already secured the top seed in the AFC. The team's ensuing bye week gave the playmaking wideout some added healing time for his hamstring and he'll be ready to go and serve as a primary target for QB Patrick Mahomes this weekend.

Hill (hamstring) was present for Wednesday's practice, Herbie Teope of The Kansas City Star reports.
EDGE Analysis
Hill sat out Kansas City's regular-season finale against the Chargers, with his team's playoff seeding already locked in. With the added healing time afforded by a first-round bye, Hill seems poised to return to action Sunday against the Browns. Wednesday's injury report will reveal whether he was a limited or full practice participant.

Hill (hamstring) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Chargers.
EDGE Analysis
In addition to Hill, the Chiefs also ruled out Sammy Watkins (calf), which sets the stage for the Chiefs -- who have clinched the AFC's No. 1 seed and a first-round bye -- to roll out a wideout corps headed by Demarcus Robinson, Mecole Hardman and Byron Pringle in Week 17. Hill is expected to be good to go for Kansas City's playoff opener Jan. 16 or 17.
