The Kansas City Chiefs have been without star receiver Tyreek Hill since the first quarter of Week 1, and they may be without him again on Sunday.

Andy Reid told reporters Friday that Hill will be a game-time decision in Week 6 against the Houston Texans.

Hill was hospitalized with an injury to his sternum in the first quarter of Week 1.

He’s been making steady progress in his recovery but clearly the Chiefs are taking it slow and thinking more long term. With Hill in the lineup down the stretch, this offense is darn-near unstoppable.

If Hill cannot play Sunday, we don’t expect the Chiefs to suffer much in terms of offensive productivity. The bigger issue is whether Patrick Mahomes’ ankle injury will hamper him as much as it did in the second half against Indy Sunday night.
