Injury roundup: Chiefs' WR Tyreek Hills (quad), to play vs. Washington

The Kansas City Chiefs dynamic receiving corps will be fully functional for Sunday in Washington.

Injury roundup: Chiefs' WR Tyreek Hills (quad), to play vs. Washington

Wide receiver Tyreek Hill is expected to play against WFT, NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported, per a source. Hill is currently listed as questionable. He missed two practices due to injury and was only a limited participant Friday. Hill is now officially active.

Hill leads the Chiefs with 37 receptions, yards (516), and touchdowns (4). He also added 45 rushing yards in four attempts. Hill is a speedy receiver who poses a threat to opposing defenders. His presence also provides opportunities for fellow Chiefs pass-catchers. Hill was able to catch seven passes for 63 yards and 13 targets in last week's defeat by the Buffalo Bills.

Guard Joe Thuney also battled through injury last week and plans to do so again this week. James Palmer, NFL Network's reporter on the matter, reported that the veteran starter is still recovering from a broken hand and will play Sunday. Officially, he was listed as questionable but is now active.

Chiefs will not tackle Lucas Niang (hamstring), but Mike Remmers would, Palmer said.

The Chiefs (3-3) have lost three of the last four games and are now entering Week 6. Rapoport reports that the Chiefs offense will be at full strength, but their defense will make a safety switch with Juan Thornhill beginning instead of Daniel Sorensen.

  • A source told Rapoport that the Washington Football Team runningback Antonio Gibson and wideout Terry McLaurin are scheduled to play against the Chiefs. Both players are available.
  • Cleveland Browns faces Jedrick wills (ankle), and Jack Conklin(knee). According to Tom Pelissero, the NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reports that neither Wills nor Conklin are expected to play against the Cardinals. Kareem HUNT will carry the majority of the carries, with Nick Chuubb available on Sunday. However, with wrist and knee injuries, Browns coach Kevin Stefanski still has some ideas for the running back. Stefanski stated, "I don’t want to kill Kareem." Pelissero added that Chubb will not be placed on injured reserve, and Stefanski isn’t ready to exclude him from Thursday night against the Broncos. This is yet another reason to not overwork Hunt as it is a short week. Expect D’Ernest Johnson, and demetric Felton both to be able to carry the ball against Arizona. Per Pelissero, Defenders Myles Garret, Denzel Wid, and Jadeveon Clowney are all good to go.
  • Arizona Cardinals runningback Chase Edmonds (shoulder), is expected to play against the Browns, Rapoport reports.
  • Los Angeles Chargers wide receiver Mike Williams (knee), is active against the Ravens despite missing practice every week.
  • Chicago Bears wide receiver Allen Robinson (ankle, questionable) is currently active against Green Bay.
  • Green Bay Packers offensive Lineman Elgton J. Jenkins (ankle is active against the Bears).
  • According to Rapoport, Denver Broncos runningback Melvin Gordon is expected to play against the Raiders.
  • New York Giants wide receiver Kadarius Tom (ankle), and tackle Andrew Thomas(foot) are both active against the Rams. However, receiver Darius Slayton is not.
  • According to Rapoport, a source says that Ezekiel Elliott, Dallas Cowboys runningback, Tyron Smith (neck), Randy Gregory (knee), and Trevon Diggs(ankle), are all expected to play for New England. Rapoport states that Smith will be closely monitored.
  • According to Rapoport, the New England Patriots are hopeful that running back Damien Harris(ribs) will play against Cowboys. Rapoport states that Harris' availability is not certain but it is positive.
  • Detroit Lions tight end T.J. T.J. Hockenson (knee), Trey Flowers (knee), and D'Andre Swift and Jamaal Williams (hips, illness) are all currently active.
  • Indianapolis Colts receiver TY. Hilton (neck), is currently active.
  • Baltimore Ravens receiver Rashod bateman is currently active.
  • Houston Texans offensive Lineman Marcus Cannon has had back surgery and is expected to be out approximately 12 weeks, according to Rapoport.
  • Miami Dolphins cornerback Byron Jones as well as receiver Preston Williams were both questionable going into Sunday. Both Jacoby Brist and Tua Tagovailoa are active.
  • Jacksonville Jaguars rookie cornersback Tyson Campbell, who was in question after being restricted in practice this week, is now inactive against Miami. Ben Bartch, offensive lineman, was out of Sunday's game against the Dolphins due to a concussion.
