NFL will not suspend Tyreek Hill following child abuse investigation
Tyreek Hill avoided legal trouble stemming from the child abuse investigation he was at the center of this offseason, and he will not be disciplined by the NFL, either.
The NFL announced in a statement on Friday that a thorough investigation into the claims against Hill found no evidence that the Kansas City Chiefs star violated the league’s Personal Conduct Policy. As a result, Hill is free to report to the Chiefs and take part in all team activities going forward.

The statement noted that the court proceedings are confidential and all law enforcement documents have been sealed, and Hill could be subject to discipline in the future if new evidence surfaces.
Hill met with the NFL last month and reportedly provided a significant amount of evidence supporting the claim that he had nothing to do with his 3-year-old son suffering a broken arm. Despite an audio recording that suggested he was responsible for the boy’s injuries, police are said to have determined that Hill was not. The NFL’s investigation must have come to the same conclusion.
