The Miami Dolphins had an injury scare on Wednesday when it was reported that star wide receiver Tyreek Hill did not practice.
He has been dealing with a hip issue that some thought could hold him out for a few weeks.
Well, it now appears that was all just a scare.
According to Adam Schefter, Hill told reporters he is “fine” and will play on Sunday.

That is the best news that the Dolphins and their fans could hear on Thursday.
Missing Hill for any amount of time would be a tough blow to the most explosive offense in football.
Also, Hill is chasing the first 2,000-yard season in NFL history.
He will need to play in all 17 games to achieve that milestone.
Miami is coming off a tough loss to the Philadelphia Eagles and hopes to get back on track against the New England Patriots.
This will be the second time the Dolphins and Patriots meet.
The first was a Dolphins win but Hill was held in check.
He caught five passes for 40 yards and one touchdown.
Miami hopes to get him much more involved against a tough Patriots defense.
The Dolphins continue to dominate on offense this year.
They lead the league in yards per game (462.3) and points per game (34.3).
Miami has not won the AFC East since 2008.
This season looks like their best chance to end the drought.NEXT: Dolphins DC Won't Confirm Jalen Ramsey's Status For Sunday
