The Chiefs reportedly don't plan to place Hill on injured reserve.
Rookie wideout Mecole Hardman's role is also primed to expand. Like Hill, the second-round pick has game-breaking speed. He should become Patrick Mahomes' top downfield weapon until the three-time Pro Bowler is ready to return.
Hill inked a reported three-year, $54-million extension with Kansas City days before the season opener. The wideout racked up 1,479 yards and 12 touchdowns in 2018.
