Hill (hamstring) didn't participate in Thursday's practice, Herbie Teope of The Kansas City Star reports.
EDGE Analysis
Hill's absences from consecutive practices to begin Week 17 only adds further fuel to the notion that the wideout won't suit up Sunday against the Chargers. If Hill is inactive for the contest, it shouldn't be taken as an indication that the star wideout suffered a setback with his right hamstring coming out of his appearance Week 16 versus the Falcons. Instead, the Chiefs are expected to exercise caution with most of their key starters and any banged-up players in the regular-season finale as Kansas City has already locked up the AFC's No. 1 seed. Even if Hill practices Friday and approaches the weekend without a designation, he'll likely handle only a limited role as the Chiefs aim to preserve his health for the playoffs.

Hill (hamstring) didn't practice Wednesday, Adam Teicher of ESPN.com reports.
EDGE Analysis
Hill also had his practice reps limited last week, but he nonetheless managed to suit up for the Chiefs' win over the Falcons and secured four of six targets for 65 yards. Coach Andy Reid has already announced that Patrick Mahomes will sit out Week 17, and the Chiefs will almost certainly give Hill the extra week of rest as well, especially if there are any lingering concerns about his health. Kansas City has already secured the AFC's No. 1 seed and home-field advantage throughout the playoffs.

Hill caught four of his six targets for 65 yards during Sunday's 17-14 win against the Falcons.
EDGE Analysis
Hill was limited by a hamstring issue Thursday and Friday in practice after being listed as a non-participant Wednesday. However, coach Andy Reid portrayed confidence late in the week regarding his star receiver's status. The five-time Pro Bowler was, indeed, able to avoid his first game absence of 2020, but the Falcons kept him without a touchdown for just the second time since Week 6. Hill has been held under 80 receiving yards in four consecutive games, though a combined three TDs boosted his value between Weeks 14 and 15. There's a high probability of Hill being rested for Kansas City's regular-season finale against the Chargers, with the Chiefs having secured the AFC's No. 1 seed by virtue of Sunday's win.

Hill (hamstring) is listed as active for Sunday's game against the Falcons, Herbie Teope of The Kansas City Star reports.
EDGE Analysis
This was the expected outcome, though ESPN's Adam Schefter previously noted that Kansas City plans to "monitor Hill" during Sunday's game and "be smart with him as well." Assuming no in-game setbacks, however, Hill should remain a key playmaker in his team's Week 16 offense, which will take aim at an Atlanta defense that has allowed an average of 287.7 passing yards per game to date. Only Seattle (293.0) has allowed more.

Hill (hamstring), who is listed as questionable, is expected to play Sunday against the Falcons, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.
EDGE Analysis
The 26-year-old never appeared to be in serious danger of missing Sunday's contest, as coach Andy Reid previously indicated the wideout was expected to play despite being listed as questionable. Hill's availability will be officially known when Kansas City releases its list of inactives about 90 minutes prior to Sunday's 1:00 p.m. ET kickoff.

Hill (hamstring) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Falcons.
EDGE Analysis
That said, Adam Teicher of ESPN.com believes that Hill's 'questionable' designation seems "more precautionary than anything," with coach Andy Reid having said that he expects the wideout -- who was listed as a limited practice participant Thursday and Friday -- to play in Sunday's 1:00 p.m. ET contest.

Hill (hamstring) was a limited participant in Thursday's practice.
EDGE Analysis
The Chiefs didn't turn Hill loose completely for their second practice of the week, but his ability to participate on a limited basis was a welcome sign after he was held out of Wednesday's session entirely. So long as Hill can upgrade to full activity Friday, he'll likely avoid an injury designation for Sunday's game against the Falcons. The play-making wideout has failed to reach the end zone only once in his last eight games, racking up 896 yards from scrimmage and 12 touchdowns over that stretch.

Hill (hamstring) returned to practice Thursday, Pete Sweeney of ArrowheadPride.com reports.
EDGE Analysis
Kansas City's Thursday injury report will reveal Hill's level of participation, but the wideout's return -- in any capacity -- bodes well for his chances of being available for Sunday's game against the Falcons.

Hill didn't practice Wednesday due to a hamstring injury, Sam McDowell of The Kansas City Star reports.
EDGE Analysis
According to Matt McMullen of the Chiefs' official site, head coach Andy Reid said Hill's hamstring "tightened up" during last weekend's win over the Saints. As a result, Hill will get a recovery day Wednesday as the Chiefs kick off Week 16 prep, but at this point, the team hasn't expressed concern about the wideout missing Sunday's game against the Falcons. Hill heads into the matchup with an NFL-best 17 touchdowns on the season.

Hill caught six of 10 targets for 53 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 32-29 win over the Saints. He also gained one yard on his only carry.
EDGE Analysis
His five-yard grab midway through the first quarter gave Hill his 15th receiving TD and 17th total touchdown on the season in only 14 games. The speedster also has 83 catches on the year, leaving him five shy of a new career high heading into Week 16's meeting with a Falcons secondary that just got torched by the Buccaneers.
