Miami Dolphins star wide receiver Tyreek Hill did not practice on Wednesday due to a hip injury which has brought uncertainty to his status for the Dolphins upcoming game against the New England Patriots on Sunday, according to ESPN’s Marcel Louis-Jacques.
Hill hasn’t missed a game since he was traded to the Dolphins in the 2022 offseason and is a big part of the Dolphins high-octane offense, currently leading the NFL in receiving yards with 902 on the season thus far.
“It was a little weird not having someone like Tyreek out there,” Dolphins quarterback Tua Tagovailoa said after Wednesday’s practice. “His leadership, his aura — but it calls for other guys to step up. Jaylen [Waddle] had a really good practice today, [Cedrick Wilson Jr.] had a really good practice. A lot of guys had good practices today, especially being a Wednesday.
“I don’t think anyone can emulate what Tyreek does on the field. His speed, his cuts in and out of breaks. … If we couldn’t have Tyreek, that would be tough, but the show goes on. You’ve got to continue to play, and somewhere down the line we’re going to get Tyreek back. And it has to be one of those things where you never lift your foot off the gas and you don’t lose that rhythm as a team or a unit.”
Hill’s status will be a story for all NFL journalists to watch as we head into the weekend.
