Could Tyreek Hill See Time as a Kick Returner for the Chiefs in the Wild Card Game?

It’s sounding like the Chiefs are toying with the idea of putting sensational returner Tyreek Hill in a position Sunday to bring back kickoffs on Saturday during the teams’ wild card playoff game against the Titans.

Here’s a report from Pro Football Talk:

With injuries to De’Anthony Thomas and Akeem Hunt, the Chiefs need a kickoff returner for Saturday. Kansas City, though, has one of the NFL’s best kickoff returners as a backup plan if it so chooses.

“Put Tyreek [Hill] back there,” special teams coach Dave Toub said of his options, via Sam McDowell of the Kansas City Star.

Hill averaged 27.4 yards per return with one touchdown on 14 kickoff returns last season as a rookie. The Chiefs took him off kickoff return duties when he became a starting receiver this season.
