Miami Dolphins star Tyreek Hill was nursing a quad injury ahead of Week 5, but he eventually suited up on Sunday. However, he then departed late in the fourth quarter with a foot injury.

The latest on Hill is a cause for concern.

Hill was spotted with a walking boot on his left foot after Sunday's contest. Head coach Mike McDaniel said in his postgame press conference the star wideout was stepped on and that resulted in his early exit.

Mike Florio of ProFootballTalk reports the injury isn't serious, though, which should calm some Dolphins fans' fears.

"Per a source with knowledge of the situation, the injury is not believed to be serious."

Hopefully this is just a case of extreme caution by Miami and Hill avoided any serious issue. He's made an immediate impact with his team, racking up a league-leading 477 receiving yards over the first four games of the year. He added another 47 yards on Sunday before leaving.

Hill's status will be a major story to watch heading into Week 6. The Dolphins' roster is hurting up and down the depth chart, putting them at a potentially significant disadvantage if key players are forced to miss their matchup against the talented Minnesota Vikings.
