The NFL is not expected to take any action on Tyreek Hill this week as local prosecutors continue their reopened child abuse investigation involving the Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver, NFL Network's Mike Garafolo reported Wednesday.
The Chiefs announced last Thursday following the conclusion of the first round of the 2019 NFL Draftthat Hill "will not take part in any team activities" for the foreseeable future after a television station aired audio during which Hill can be heard telling his fiancee about punching and using a belt to discipline their son.
"My understanding is that for the time being that's going to be enough for the league, and the team and all parties involved as far as what they should do in the immediate future while they continue to gather information," Garafolo reported on Up to the Minute. "I know people have been talking about the possibility of the Commissioner's Exempt List at least by the end of the week. That's usually something they use when there is more of a pressing thing going on, let's say the start of the season or the preseason or one of those things.
