July 30 (UPI) -- Kansas City Chiefs star wide receiver Tyreek Hill had an early exit from the team's training camp practice Tuesday after suffering a quad injury.

League sources told ESPN and Yahoo Sports that Hill was carted off the field after being examined in the medical tent. The wideout sustained a bruised quad and is expected to be fine, according to ESPN.

Chiefs cornerback Bashaud Breeland hit Hill while attempting to break up a pass, according to ESPN. The receiver remained on the ground before limping to the medical tent.

Hill was stretching and bending his right leg in the tent before a golf cart picked him up and took him away from the practice field.

Hill, who was suspended from off-season practices by the Chiefs due to a child abuse investigation regarding his 4-year-old son, returned to the field Saturday. The NFL said he wouldn't be disciplined and cleared him to report to training camp.

The three-time Pro Bowl selection recorded career highs in receptions (87), receiving yards (1,479) and touchdowns (12) in 16 regular-season games last season. He added 22 carries for 151 yards and one rushing score.
