Hill first tweaked his hamstring against the Saints on Dec. 20, the same game in which Edwards-Helaire got hurt. But he was able to play the following week against Atlanta, when the Chiefs clinched the AFC's top seed and lone first-round bye, before joining Patrick Mahomes and a handful of other starters in getting the regular-season finale off.
“Right now I'm doing great,” said Hill, who got the go-ahead from Chiefs trainers to work out with his personal trainer, Luther Glover, at his facility in the Kansas City suburb of Lenexa. “I feel like our medical team here does a tremendous job of allowing us to go work out with our off-field trainers, so I had a chance to work out with Luther, go to his other place and get some work outside the facility. So I'm feeling good. I'm ready.”
The absence of Hitchens and Niemann left the Chiefs with just two healthy linebackers late in the season, while the injury to Remmers forced them to use yet another mixed-up version of their preferred offensive line.
Now, they're back along with Edwards-Helaire and fellow running back Le'Veon Bell, who was dealing with some nagging injuries of his own and suited up but did not play in the Chiefs' regular-season finale against Los Angeles.
That means the Chiefs are the healthiest they've been in months as they begin their postseason push.
