Kansas City Chiefs star receiver Tyreek Hill said his foot injury suffered in Sunday's 27-24 win over the Baltimore Ravens is "bad."

"My foot's bad," Hill said, per Peter King of NBC Sports.

Hill, 24, is one of the most dangerous playmakers in the NFL, registering 74 receptions for 1,258 yards and 11 touchdowns. He went down with a heel injury before halftime but returned despite being hobbled, compiling eight receptions for 139 yards.

He's paired with tight end Travis Kelce to give the Chiefs one of the most dynamic groups of skill-position players in the NFL. But given Hill's speed and his elusiveness, there isn't a direct replacement for him on the roster.

Sammy Watkins (who's banged up as well), Chris Conley, Demarcus Robinson and new signing Kelvin Benjamin would likely shoulder a larger load in the passing game if Hill misses time, while Kelce would be even more featured.

The Chiefs would have to rely on the running game as well, sans Kareem Hunt, in the absence of their most explosive offensive weapon.
