One of those headlines that comes across the screen and just breaks your heart a little bit. How can bad things happen to such great people? After a play where Jalen Ramsey attempted to teach Tyreek Hill a life lesson, wait, I mean, kick him in the head…Hill winced in pain on the sideline with his helmet off and it was so tough to watch.

Moments later the cameras flashed to Hill getting golf carted to the locker room. A sight no one wants to see happen to any upstanding human being. Usually you can walk off under your own power with an upper body injury, i.e Nick Foles breaking his collarbone in the same game, so it spelled bad news when Tyreek Hill couldn’t even walk off under his own power. Well, bad news for Tyreek Hill I guess.
wow so hard to watch really feel for the guy…………. pic.twitter.com/UJVHVVgPUU

Now it appears according to the Chiefs athletic trainer Hill had to be hospitalized:
“[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 added 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.
Like a punch in the chest hearing this news out of Kansas City. Just 3 days after they gave him a well deserved $54 million dollar extension too. Would be a real shame to lose Hill for the season after only playing half a quarter.
tyreek hill appears to have hurt the arm he uses for strangling pregnant women. hope he gets better soon.
