Chiefs receiver Tyreek Hill was transported
Jacksonville with a shoulder injury.He will not require surgery Devin Bush Jersey , according to a source, but Hill will miss some time. He is expected to be out at least a couple of weeks.Chiefs head athletic trainer Rick Burkholder explained the injury after Sunday’s game.“Tyreek Hill had an injury in the game where he landed on his shoulder,” Burkholder said, via Ian Rapoport of the NFL. “He had a sternal clavicular joint injury, which is where your clavicle comes into your sternum. 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 the Baptist Medical Center [in Jacksonville], and we turned his care over to Brett Frykberg http://www.steelerscheapauthenticstore.c...rsey-cheap , who is an ortho-trauma physician. Scott Mullen, one of our physicians, is with him. He’s from the Kansas University Health System. He’s being treated there to reduce the dislocation or the injury. We don’t have anymore update on that. This is a good time to realize that the National Football League under [NFL executive vice president] Jeff Miller, [NFL chief medical officer] Allen Sills go to great lengths to put in emergency medical, emergency action plans for stadiums like this, and because the Jaguars had a plan, and we followed their plan, he was able to get care without any complication. That transportation is under the care of an orth-trauma physician now. We’ll give you an update in the next day or two.”Rapoport said it’s the same injury Packers receiver Jake Kumerow had last season. Kumerow missed two months. Marcus Mariota wakes up every morning hoping his injured right hand feels better.Unfortunately for the Tennessee Titans quarterback, the weakness is still there, along with numbness and tingling in two fingers.That’s why Mariota was limited Wednesday at practice for the Titans, even as he cut up a glove to cover those two fingers hoping to give himself a better grip of the football.“I think it’s close Justin Layne Jersey , but again we’re going to just take it one day at a time,” Mariota said.Mariota hurt the elbow on his throwing arm in the season opener, a 27-20 loss in Miami. He was intercepted twice after the injury, and Mariota still finds himself dealing with the expected injury that affects both the velocity with which he throws and the spin he can put on the ball.“Honestly, it is hard,” Mariota said. “The way that they explained it to me is like when you strum like a guitar string. When that string settles down, that’s kind of similar to how my nerve is. My nerve’s kind of been strummed, and it’s going to take its time to settle down.”A week ago, both Vrabel and Mariota said they thought the quarterback would be able to play in the Titans’ home opener against Houston last weekend. But the numbness and tingling in Mariota’s right, throwing hand didn’t ease enough late in the week.So coaches added some wildcat to the offense with Derrick Henry, and backup Blaine Gabbert got the 46th start of his NFL career with his fourth different team. Gabbert earned a game ball throwing for 117 yards with a touchdown and no turnovers in a 20-17 win over Houston.Mariota hasn’t missed consecutive games since his rookie season when separate knee sprains cost him two games apiece. With Mariota limited Wednesday http://www.steelerscheapauthenticstore.c...rsey-cheap , the Titans (1-1) split the work Wednesday at practice as they prepare to visit AFC South rival Jacksonville (2-0).“That’s all you can do, is make sure to get guys ready that could play in the game for anything that may come up,” Vrabel said. “Then, have to make a decision that you know is in the best interest of the team later in the week.”Jacksonville coach Doug Marrone said the Jaguars are preparing to see both Mariota and Gabbert. Mariota beat the Jaguars twice last season , and Gabbert also notched a win against the team that drafted him at No. 10 overall in the 2011 draft. Gabbert’s second start for Arizona came Nov. 26, and he led the Cardinals to a win over the Jaguars throwing for 241 yards with two touchdowns and only one interception.“We just make sure that we work on both quarterbacks,” Marrone said. “Both quarterbacks have done well versus us. We know it’s going to be a challenge. Gabbert beat us last year when he was in Arizona, so they have a lot of respect for both of those guys.”Whoever starts at quarterback should be helped by the return of two-time Pro Bowl left tackle Taylor Lewan and possibly even right tackle Jack Conklin.Lewan suffered a concussion in the season opener in Miami, and Conklin tore his left ACL in January. Both were limited Wednesday, and Vrabel said Lewan still has to be cleared by an outside doctor, which they hope happens Thursday. Backup tackle Dennis Kelly Zach Gentry Jersey , who replaced Conklin during the opener, was not at the facility after being released from the hospital.“That would be great to get as many guys back as we possibly could,” Vrabel said.Notes: RB Derrick Henry (back) was limited in practice Wednesday as well, along with TE Luke Stocker (calf). S Kendrick Lewis (foot), who missed the first two games, was limited in his return.___Follow Teresa M. Walker at
