Kansas City Chiefs, after sealing a 13-31 win against the Washington Redskins in week 6 want to carry forward their winning streak in order to make a comeback in the league. However, doing so without the likes of wide receiver Tyreek Hill and tight end Travis Kelce would certainly be a nightmare for them.

Both the star players picked up an injury earlier this week. Kelce sustained a twitch in his neck while Hill tweaked his quadriceps, making them miss practice throughout the week. However, the news is still good for Chiefs fans.

Tyreek Hill and Travis Kelce are expected to play this week

Travis Kelce has made his way off the injury report after recovering from the neck injury recently and is expected to make an appearance against the Titans in this week’s fixture. While Tyreek Hill, though being listed as ‘questionable’ in the report, is still very much likely to play alongside Kelce.

This update is not just a relief to the fans but also to the Chiefs staff, as both the high-quality players in the Chiefs squad have a great impact on their game.

And with the franchise having a 3-3 haul so far this season, they need to pick up the pace and continue with the winning streak in order to make the playoffs. The Chiefs stand at third place in the AFC West conference below the 4-2 Chargers and the 4-2 Raiders.
