Tyreek Hill is back on the practice field.

The Kansas City Chiefs receiver is on the field and in pads Friday, per BJ Kissel of the team's official website. How much he participates remains to be seen.

Hill left practice Tuesday after colliding with a teammate and suffering a quad contusion.

The speedy wideout being back at practice after missing just two days underscores that Hill and the Chiefs avoided any serious injury issue.

Fellow wide receiver Mecole Hardman left practice early due to an illness, according to Brooke Pryor with the Kansas City Star.
