The Kansas City Chiefs got banged up in a big way on Sunday during their game against the Jacksonville Jaguars, and it could leave them without one of their biggest offensive threats.

Wideout Tyreek Hill was taken to a local hospital to get his shoulder examined in a concerning update after the Chiefs' win, and now the team is mulling a few options for him.

Hill could stand to miss a couple of games or wouldn't be able to return until after Week 8. That's a sizable difference, but the good news is that Kansas City managed to score 40 points without Hill for over three quarters against one of the league's top defenses.

Considering he just signed a lucrative contract extension, it'd probably be best to be cautious.

Hill's uncommon sternal clavicular injury is a concerning one given the complications, so Chiefs fans shouldn't be shocked if he hits injured reserve.

With Sammy Watkins exploding onto the scene, Hill's absence may not be as bad as initially thought.
