Andy Reid 'Comfortable' With Tyreek Hill's Return

Jul 24, 2019 9:26 AM

Andy Reid says the Kansas City Chiefs will welcome back Tyreek Hill when full-squad training camp begins on Saturday.

The Chiefs suspended Hill from their offseason program, including all practices, after a Kansas City television station released audio of Hill and his fiancée, who accused Hill of abusing their son in April. Hill had been under investigation by the Johnson County (Kansas) District Attorney's Office for allegations of child abuse, but the prosecutor indicated in April that Hill would not be charged.

The NFL announced Friday that Hill would not be suspended.

"We're comfortable with Tyreek coming back here and we look forward to bringing him back here and having an opportunity to get back to doing what he loves to do,'' Reid said. "We have the trust in Tyreek and we're going to go forward in a positive way.

"I've had a chance to talk to him, on the phone, in person. I spent quite a bit of time with him, actually. He's remorseful that he's had to put all of us through what we went through and he had to go through. That's a sensitive situation. He wants to get back and he wants to do what he needs to do to be a father and to be a player here. He's very conscious of that."

NFL Won't Suspend Tyreek Hill For Child Abuse Allegations

Jul 19, 2019 4:53 PM

Tyreek Hill won't be disciplined by the NFL following their investigation into allegations of child abuse.

"Based on the evidence presently available, the NFL cannot conclude that Mr. Hill violated the Personal Conduct Policy," the NFL said in a statement Friday. "Accordingly, he may attend Kansas City's training camp and participate in all club activities. He has been and will continue to be subject to conditions set forth by the District Court, Commissioner [Roger] Goodell, and the Chiefs, which include clinical evaluation and therapeutic intervention."

Following the NFL's announcement, the Chiefs said in a statement that "it is appropriate for Tyreek to return to the team at the start of training camp," which begins July 27 at Missouri Western State University in St. Joseph.

The league left open the possibility of revisiting Hill's case should further information come out through police.

Chiefs Fan Fined $500 For Shining Laser At Tom Brady

Jul 18, 2019 8:46 AM

The Kansas City Chiefs fan who shined a laser in Tom Brady's fanduring the AFC Championship Game has been fined.

Dwyan Morgan was given a $500 fine after pleading guilty to disturbing the peace.

A green light flashed across Brady’s face during the Patriots-Chiefs game in January. Laser pointers can cause eye injuries and could easily distract a player during a game, but Brady did not appear to notice it.
