Just three days after being diagnosed with a bruised quadricep, Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Tyreek Hill was on the practice field Friday.

BJ Kissel of the team’s official website reported the news.

Hill left practice Tuesday after colliding with a teammate and suffering a quad contusion, but he was back on the field and in pads Friday. The report did not address how much he would participate.

One of six Chiefs named to the 2019 Pro Bowl, Hill is the lead receiver for an explosive offense directed by reigning MVP Patrick Mahomes.

Hill caught 87 passes for 1,479 yards and 12 touchdowns in 2018, but his offseason was mired in controversy surrounding investigations by police and the NFL related to allegations of child abuse when his 3-year-old son suffered a broken arm. The NFL ruled last week that since the police investigation did not find enough evidence to charge Hill, he wouldn’t be punished or suspended by the league.

Also Friday, the Kansas City Star reported that wide receiver Mecole Hardman left practice early due to illness.
