The Kansas City Chiefs will look to bounce back from their Week 5 loss to the Buffalo Bills when they face the Washington Football Team this Sunday. Unfortunately, Tyreek Hill — the Chiefs' No. 1 wideout — could be in danger of missing the game.

Hill sustained a quadriceps contusion during the loss to the Bills. That injury has prevented him from practicing on Wednesday and Thursday, leaving his Week 6 availability up in the air.

Tyreek Hill Injury Update

Earlier in the week, ESPN's Adam Schefter reported that Hill suffered a "minor knee injury" and wasn't expect to miss time. It was later revealed that it was a quadriceps contusion, with the Chiefs yet to give out a timetable for his return.

Hill has been his usual impressive self this season, leading all Kansas City players in targets (51), receptions (37) and receiving yards (516) while also hauling in four touchdown passes (T-1st). Even if he misses a game or two, his presence will surely be missed.

Hill's status at Friday's practice will give more information if he can play on Sunday. If he's forced to sit out, someone like Mecole Hardman, Byron Pringle or Demarcus Robinson will have to step up. There's Josh Gordon, too, but he just joined the team a few weeks ago and needs to familiarize himself more with the system.

The good news is that Washingon is giving up 293.4 passing yards (27th) and 2.8 TDs through the air (31st) per game. Even if Hill is out, Kansas City's wide receiver room should have a field day against a vulnerable secondary.

The Chiefs are currently the 6.5-point favorites against Washington, according to FanDuel Sportsbook.
