Andy Reid Hasn't Begun Planning As If Tyreek Hill Won't Be On Chiefs

Mar 27, 2019 7:33 AM

Andy Reid has not spoken with Tyreek Hill since learning of an alleged battery and child abuse.

“I have not, no,” Reid said at NFL’s annual owners’ meetings on Tuesday. “Our counsel’s told us not to do that. I have not been in contact with him.

“I really don’t even have a further statement from what we put out. Really nothing’s happened there. There’s no news on that.”

Reid told reporters Tuesday that he hasn’t thought about planning for the season as if Hill’s not going to be there. Hill has been one of the NFL's most productive playmakers.

“I haven’t even gone there,” Reid said. “I’m just letting it take its course.”

Tyreek Hill Under Investigation For Allegedly Breaking Son's Arm

Mar 15, 2019 5:26 PM

Tyreek Hill is under investigation for a battery incident in which a juvenile is listed as the victim.

Hill’s fiancee, Crystal Espinal, is listed under “others involved.”

“The club is aware of the investigation involving Tyreek Hill,” the Chiefs said in a statement to The Star. “We’re in the process of gathering information and have been in contact with the league and local authorities. We’ll have no further comment at this time.”

The source said that the incident was against the couple’s son, resulting in a broken arm.

Hill has a history of domestic violence. He reportedly punched and choked Espinal, who was then eight weeks pregnant with their son, on Dec. 11, 2014. He was arrested and dismissed from the Oklahoma State football team. Hill pleaded guilty to domestic assault and battery by strangulation in August 2015. He received three years probation. The Chiefs selected Hill in the fifth round of the 2016 NFL Draft.

Hyde was released by the Jacksonville Jaguars on Friday.
