The broad successor of Kansas City Chefs McCall Hardman has been in the team’s reserve / COVID-19 since last Wednesday. So far, there are no indications that Hardman will be off the roster – and therefore entitled to play – before the team faces Las Vegas Raiders on Sunday night.
Since being drafted last season, Hardman has been the main return blow to the bosses – although this season the team is using some other players as returnees. So, once Hardman is out, who will line up to get kicks against the Raiders?
“Tyrick Hill ̵
In fact, Pringle returned four starts in 2020 – one of which gave a 102-yard touchdown against Denver Broncos in week 7. Robinson also had a return to the start this year – along with safety Armani Watts – but so far Fenton has not had either an initial stroke or a pound.
And that’s the way Toub wants it. Based on past experience, it is clear that he likes to put other squads on special teams in defense, sending a returnee who is not necessarily ready to see.
“You would never know how we were going to get there,” Tub said. “But obviously Hill will be option number one.”
But whether this is actually true remains to be seen. Tub often hinted that under certain circumstances he would send Hill to play rent-a-car. But recently he did it only twice – once last season and once (so far) this season. Hill did not have an initial start to his 2016 rookie season.
So for now, Tub is holding his cards down.
In any case, offensive coordinator Eric Bieniemi did not seem concerned about the possibility that his number one distribution could be used in some special team plays. Asked about this on Thursday, he smiled broadly.
“You know what? We’ll do whatever it takes to help us win,” he said. “So I know this: Tyrick has done it in the past. He understands the challenge he will face.”
And then Bienniemi laughed.
“I am just really excited. What better opportunity for him to steal a moment to take the ball and do what he does? I’m going to get my popcorn. ”
If McCall Hardman doesn’t play on Sunday, who do you see returning hinges for the chiefs?
