Tyreek Hill gave Miami Dolphins fans quite the scare on Sunday. After a failed fourth down conversion deep in Raiders’ territory during the second quarter, Hill left the playing field and headed into the locker room with what appeared to be an injured right hand. Quarterback Tua Tagovailoa led the team on a touchdown drive in his absence, while the fan base held its collective breath and waited for news on the star wide receiver.

The quick turnaround could be an issue if there is any swelling due to the injury, but the player himself doesn’t seem all that concerned. He had the following to say in Monday’s press conference about the issue:
I think I’ll be fine. The only thing I’m really bummed about I won’t be able to play Fortnite
Hill is a known gamer and Twitch streamer, and the ailment is apparently enough to keep him from gripping the controller. But can he grip a football?
