New York Jets wide receiver Stephen Hill celebrates a touchdown with a team mate - Rich Schultz

New York Jets wide receiver Stephen Hill left the Week 4 matchup against the Tennessee Titans during the first offensive series with a head injury. We bring you the fantasy implications.

New York Jets wide receiver Stephen Hill left during the first offensive series in the Week 4 matchup against the Tennessee Titans. Hill suffered a head injury on his first target from quarterback Geno Smith and he did not return. The extent of his head injury is unknown. Hill was quarterback Geno Smith's favorite target and arguably the Jets best wide receiver. Smith and the Jets felt his loss as they failed to get much going on offense and Smith only threw one touchdown. Hill has been targeted 23 times with 13 receptions for 233 yards and a touchdown on the year.

Fantasy impact: Fantasy owners have cause to be concerned as the designation "head injury" likely means concussion and he would have to pass the concussion protocol before playing again. The extent of his head injury isn't known, but he didn't return and the Jets clearly needed him. Fantasy owners obviously must watch this situation, but it is likely he will miss at least one game.The Jets will play the Atlanta Falcons on Monday Night Football in Week 5.
