Tyreek Hill sufferd a scare Tuesday when he took a hit, limped off the field and was taken away from Chiefs training camp on a cart.
However, ESPN reported Hill escaped serious injury with a bruised quad and is expected to be fine.
According to media reports, Hill was hit by cornerback Bashaud Breeland, who was trying to break up a pass heading toward Hill. The receiver stayed on the ground for a little bit before getting up and making his way to the cart.

It’s unclear if Hill will miss any practice time, but considering the Bengals recently lost star receiver A.J. Green for up to eight weeks with an ankle injury, it’s safe to assume the Chiefs will be cautious and not play with fire.
Hill, 25, was recently cleared by the NFL after he was investigated for child abuse claims by his ex-fiancee. Hill spoke out about the incident for the first time Sunday as training camp got underway, adding that he was excited to be back on the field.
“I can’t wait for my new journey, man. I’m excited,” he said. “I’m working every day to be a better father, better person, better citizen, a better son, too, to my parents. One thing stood out to me, my mom, as I was going through this long process, my mom told me, people don’t need to change, they need to grow. When you think about it, a tree changes and a tree grows every day.”
While the investigation was ongoing, Hill was not allowed to participate in any offseason activities with the Chiefs.
