Chiefs Seem Hopeful That Wide Out Tyreek Hill Can Play Vs Texans

“There is optimism” that Chiefs wide receiver Tyreek Hill will be able to suit up for Sunday’s expected shootout against the Houston Texans according to Ian Rapoport of NFL.com.

Hill has practiced on a limited basis for the past two weeks but still has to undergo another scan on his injured clavicle to make sure it has healed properly before being given the green light for Week 6.

Hill could be eased in coming off a month-long absence, though his matchup against the Texans is far too enticing for fantasy owners to pass up. Sunday’s projected shootout in KC has a 55-point Vegas total, easily the highest on the slate.

Chiefs NT Xavier Williams Placed on Injured Reserve

The Chiefs have placed nose tackle Xavier Williams on injured reserve according to the team’s official website.

Williams suffered a severe high-ankle sprain in Sunday night’s upset loss to the Indianapolis Colts.

The move to IR will cost Williams at least the next eight games but he is a candidate to return late in the season for an expected playoff run.

Originally an undrafted free agent out of Northern Iowa, the 27-year-old Williams has been a mainstay of the Chiefs defensive line the past two seasons after starting his career with the Arizona Cardinals.

Chiefs Ink Veteran Defensive Lineman Terrell McClain

The Chiefs have added some beef to their defensive line, as today the team agreed to terms with veteran defensive tackle Terrell McClain.

The position is thin right now for Kansas City as Chris Jones (groin strain) and Xavier Williams (ankle) are both expected to miss playing time.

The 31-year-old McClain was released by Arizona at the end of preseason. He appeared for Atlanta in 13 games in 2018.

The Chiefs waived guard Ryan Hunter to make room for McClain.

Chiefs Move to 3-0; Top Ravens 33-28 in Home Opener

It was a wild affair but the Chiefs were finally able to put the Ravens away on Sunday, coming up huge with a 33-28 home win in their home opener to move to 3-0.

Here’s a video recap of the win for the Chiefs:

Running Back Damien Williams Out Sunday Against Ravens

Chiefs running back Damien Williams has been ruled out of Sunday’s AFC showdown against the Baltimore Ravens according to BJ Kissel of kcchiefs.com.

Williams has been unable to practice all week after suffering a knee injury in last week’s win in Oakland.

Fire up LeSean McCoy as a mid-tier RB2 as the lead back in the Chiefs’ high-flying offense. Still, the rushing game will need to show improved efficiency after totaling just 31 yards on 22 carries against the Raiders in Week 2.

It remains to be seen how much of a bell-cow role Shady will have, but we also expect rookie Darwin Thompson to be involved to a decent extent. The Ravens front seven is a good one but not as dominate as the 2018 version.

End Zones at Arrowhead Stadium Going Old School for Sunday’s Home Opener

The Chiefs are going old school for their home opener on Sunday against the Baltimore Ravens, as Arrowhead Stadium will have a new look in the end zones.

NFL.com reports that the Chiefs will feature colored end zones, paying homage to the way the team’s field looked at Kansas City Municipal Stadium in the ’60s and early ’70s.

The yellow end zones will come as the Chiefs celebrate their 60th season in Kansas City.

The Chiefs sent out a tweet earlier on Thursday giving fans a sneak peek at what the end zones will look like for the home opener.

Check Out Some of the Huge Changes to the NFL Over the Last 100 Years

If you for some unknown reason have missed it throughout the preseason as well as the first week of the regular season, the NFL is in the midst of celebrating their 100th season of football.

The game is celebrated by millions of viewers each and every week, and thousands of fans go to stadiums all over the country to take in their favorite teams battles on the gridirons.

The league though has undergone tons of changes since it started 100 years ago, some of the changes small while others have been game changers.

Today we take a look back at some of those massive changes that has shaped the NFL into the game today that we all know and love.

The first thing that shaped the game is that of the Super Bowl, which will is played on the first Sunday in February between the champs of the AFC and NFC, and checking Betway you can see just where the odds leading up to the game sit at.

The Super Bowl is a global event watched every year by over 100 million fans. There’s also the fact that people have parties to celebrate the game, and there’s the economic impact on the city that gets the chance to host the game.

This year that city is Miami, which is a great place to have the annual game that every player dreams of one day getting to.

While the Super Bowl is massive, another change to the game is that of the NFL Draft.

The draft use to be held in a hotel conference room and was never on television or radio, and fans had to wait till the next day to find out what players from college their favorite team may have selected.

It use to be before 1936 that teams would bid on college players going usually into wars to try and get players to join their team.

Now the way the draft is run today is one of the most compelling events of the NFL calendar, and fans are excited to see what players are going to go to their favorite teams.

A last huge change to how the NFL is different over the last 100 years is that of the annual 16-game schedule for all 32 NFL teams.

The way teams use to do it back in the early years of the NFL was franchises played against anyone they could manage to arrange a fixture against, including teams from outside of the league.

Finally things got a little bit more under control, and teams started to get together with those that ran the league to try and figure out how to make it more even for teams to play each other.

Now as we sit in the 100th season of the league, the release of the schedule is yet another event that fans look forward to.

Chiefs Lose Wide Out Tyreek Hill for ‘a Few Weeks’ with Shoulder Injury

Chiefs standout receiver Tyreek Hill had to be transported to a local Jacksonville hospital and is expected to miss “a few weeks” after suffering a shoulder injury during Sunday’s 40-26 win over the Jaguars, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports via Grant Gordon of NFL.com.

Chiefs head athletic trainer Rick Burkholder updated reporters on Hill’s status following the win, detailing the precautions they took with the star wide receiver.

“[Hill] had a sternoclavicular joint injury which is where your clavicle comes into your sternum,” Burkholder said. “Those can be injured coming out the front, up top or in the back. If it goes posteriorly or back it becomes a medical issue for us so that we worry that there’s more problems. His came back posteriorly and he didn’t have any medical issues but we still transported him to Baptist Medical Center [Jacksonville] and we turned his care over to Brett Frykberg who is an ortho-trauma physician.”

Burkholder added that Hill is being treated to “reduce the dislocation or the injury” and the team didn’t have any more updates on Hill’s status beyond that.

Rapoport later reported that Hill is not expected to require surgery.

Hill was hit by Jaguars cornerback Jalen Ramsey near the sideline. Following the hit, Hill was attended to by the training staff before he was carted off the field.
