Chiefs reportedly bracing for Tyreek Hill suspension within next month
Tyreek Hill is not going to face any charges stemming from an investigation over whether he abused his son, but the Kansas City Chiefs are preparing for the possibility that he could still be suspended by the NFL.
Hill is currently still suspended indefinitely by the Chiefs, but he is expected to rejoin the team at some point in the near future now that the criminal investigation involving him has been closed. However, Nate Taylor of The Athletic wrote in his recent 53-man roster projection that the Chiefs believe Hill could be suspended for violating the NFL’s personal conduct policy as soon as next month.
The NFL has likely continued with its own investigation even though law enforcement is moving on, and there have been multiple instances in the past where a player was suspended even though he avoided legal trouble. The same could be true for Hill, though a recent report claimed police were confident he did not play a role in his toddler son breaking his arm.
It was initially believed that an investigation into the claims against Hill would be reopened after his fiancee leaked an audio recording that suggested he was responsible for his son’s injuries, but prosecutors say the case is “no longer active.” Hill has denied all of the allegations against him.
