Report: Chiefs sent Kareem Hunt home after learning of video
The Kansas City Chiefs are, at least for the moment, distancing themselves from Kareem Hunt.
According to Dan Graziano of ESPN, the Chiefs sent Hunt home from the practice facility after learning of the video. While the next steps are unclear, Graziano reports that it’s likely that Hunt will be placed on the commissioner’s exempt list.
I am told the Chiefs sent Kareem Hunt home from the facility today upon learning of the release of the video and pending further action. Most likely short-term resolution is that Hunt would be placed on the commissioner's exempt list pending a final decision, but we will see.

While the allegations against Hunt have been known for months, Friday brought us the first video of it, and created a firestorm. The best thing for Kansas City to do is to keep Hunt away until this matter is settled.
