Despite practicing this week, Kansas City Chiefs receiver Tyreek Hill will not play Sunday against the Indianapolis Colts, head coach Andy Reid said Friday.

Hill was injured in the first quarter of Week 1 and has been out of commission ever since. He suffered an injury that was rare and potentially dangerous, but in the end he was able to make a strong, quick recovery.

Chances are, the Chiefs will likely have Hill back in action for their Week 6 home game against the Houston Texans, barring any setback.

Last season, Hill was one of the NFL’s most dangerous receivers, catching 87 passes for 1,479 yards and 12 touchdowns. The Chiefs head into Week 5 with an undefeated record, despite being without their top offensive star.
