He was in for nine offensive plays in the season opener against the San Diego, followed by eight, 11 and 18 in the next three games, respectively, then 21, 33 and finally 38 in last week’s game against Carolina.
Other than the one-snap drop from Week 1 to Week 2, Hill’s playing time has stayed even or increased each week. He played more snaps the past two weeks because the Chiefs were without veteran receiver Jeremy Maclin.
Hill’s role could be reduced when Maclin returns. There has been no indication from the Chiefs whether that will be in Sunday’s game against Tampa Bay at Arrowhead Stadium or sometime later in the season.
