Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill Taken To Hospital After Shoulder Injury Caused Chest Trauma

Kansas City Chiefs star receiver Tyreek Hill exited his team’s Week 1 game against the Jaguars after suffering a shoulder injury during a hit from Jacksonville CB Jalen Ramsey.

That injury has now graduated to something a bit more serious.

Chiefs head athletic trainer Rick Burkholder spoke to the media post game, saying the following –

“[Hill] had a sternoclavicular joint injury which is where your clavicle comes into your sternum,” Burkholder said. “Those can be injured coming out the front, up top or in the back. If it goes posteriorly or back it becomes a medical issue for us so that we worry that there’s more problems. His came back posteriorly and he didn’t have any medical issues but we still transported him to Baptist Medical Center [Jacksonville] and we turned his care over to Brett Frykberg who is an ortho-trauma physician.”

Burkholder noted that Hill is being treated to “reduce the dislocation or the injury” and the team didn’t have any more updates on Hill’s status beyond that.

It has been reported that the injury will sideline the WR for multiple weeks.
