Kansas City Chiefs star Tyreek Hill suffered a hamstring injury during the first drive of Monday night’s game against the Los Angeles Chargers.

Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports an MRI will take place in the next day or so, after which the Chiefs will have a better idea of his recovery timeline.

Hill pulled up lame on the final play of that first drive, clutching at his right hamstring before limping slowly off the field. Hill was worked on by medical staff on the sideline, then made his way to the locker room before coming back out onto the sideline. However, he never did get back into the game.

The dynamic receiver has already missed four games this season due to a sternoclavicular injury suffered in Week 1.

In the five full games he’s played this season, Hill has tallied 31 receptions for 527 yards and five touchdowns.
