When the Raiders face the Chiefs in Week 2 of the regular season in Oakland, Kansas City will be without one of the most elusive players in the game.
Chiefs receiver Tyreek Hill left the team's 40-26 win over the Jaguars early Sunday with a shoulder injury. Hill suffered a sternal clavicular joint injury, where his clavicle came into his sternum.
Hill will not undergo surgery, but is expected to miss multiple weeks.

Prior to his injury, Hill caught one pass for five yards and carried the ball twice for 16 yards.
Hill, who has made the Pro Bowl all three years of his NFL career, caught 87 passes for 1,479 yards receiving last season and scored 16 total touchdowns. In two games against Raiders last season, Hill caught six passes for 114 yards and one touchdown. He added 52 more yards rushing and another score.
On July 19, the NFL announced Hill did not violate the league's personal conduct policy and would not be suspended. Hill was barred from all team-related activities when audio surfaced on April 25 where he discusses injuries suffered by his three-year-old son. He also told his fiancée, Crystal Espinosa, she should be "terrified" of him during an 11-minute recorded discussion.
The Chiefs signed Hill to a three-year, $54 million contract extension Friday.
