The injury occurred when he was tackled and landed on by Jaguars cornerback Jalen Ramsey in the first quarter, as he was carted off and taken immediately to the Baptist Medical Center for treatment. According to a source close to the medical team, the injury is specifically to the posterior SC joint, which is where the collarbone meets the sternum. Hill is expected to stay at the medical center overnight.
Hill's injury opened the door for fellow receiver Sammy Watkins to have a career game, and he did just that with 198 yards in the first half alone, which broke his personal career high for a half, which was previously just 30. He did finish with three touchdown catches on the day, including a 69-yard catch in the first half. Being down a weapon did not stop Mahomes from throwing for 378 yards on the day, although, they will need everything they can get now that Antonio Brown is with the New England Patriots. This injury also comes just two days after Hill received a three-year, $54 million contract extension.
