Tyreek is a hill getting ready to play on Dolphins‘ Week 12 game against Jets on Friday, despite a brief outing due to an injury to his right hand in the second quarter of the team’s 20-13 win over Raiders on Sunday.
On fourth-and-1 from the Las Vegas three-yard line, Tua Tagovailoa threw a pass to Hill on a screen, but he was intercepted on first down by a host of Raiders defenders. After the game, Hill immediately went to the locker room for the trainers to look at his hand.
Hill, who was initially questionable to return to the game, returned to the sideline shortly after the Dolphins scored their second touchdown late in the second quarter. While all signs point to Hill playing in Friday’s AFC East clash, the All-Pro wide receiver is more concerned about playing his favorite video game than his injury status for the upcoming matchup.
“I think I’ll be fine,” Hill said when asked if his hand could keep him out of Miami’s next game. “The only thing I’m worried about is that I won’t be able to play Fortnite.”

However, Hill plans to rest his hand and spend some quality time with his wife. On Sunday, he finished with 10 catches for 146 yards and a touchdown. Hill’s performance against Las Vegas allowed him to reach the most receiving yards (1,222) by an NFL player in his first 10 games.
Currently, the seven-time Pro Bowler leads the league in receiving yards and receiving touchdowns (nine) this season.
