Chiefs WR Hill hospitalized with shoulder injury

Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Tyreek Hill was carted off the field in the first quarter of Sunday’s 40-26 win over the Jacksonville Jaguars with a shoulder injury and didn’t return.Hill’s injury was severe enough for him to be sent to a Jacksonville-area hospital and be treated by the trauma department, the Chiefs said.Head athletic trainer Rick Burkholder called it a sternal clavicular joint injury, where the clavicle pushes into the sternum. He added that Hill was being treated at Baptist Medical Center Jacksonville “to reduce the dislocation of the injury.””That transport is under the care of an ortho-trauma physician now,” Burkholder said. “We’ll give you an update in the next day or two.”Hill, who had two catches for 16 yards, was injured on the second reception after being tackled by Jacksonville cornerback Jalen Ramsey.Hill was one of two 1,000-yard receivers for the Chiefs a year ago, joining tight end Travis Kelce.
