Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill Escapes Suspension As NFL Says Not Enough Evidence

At the end of the day, the NFL has determined that there was not enough evidence to determine if Chiefs wide out Tyreek Hill violated the personal conduct policy and will not suspend him.

Hill will rejoin the team at training camp after the NFL determined that he will not be disciplined under the league’s personal conduct policy following an 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 club fully supports the conditions for return laid out by the league and will continue to monitor any new developments in the case,” the Chiefs said. “We are glad to welcome Tyreek back to the team and look forward to the start of training camp next week.”

Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes said he has been able to throw with Hill “a couple of times,” which included a Friday session.

“It’s going to be awesome to welcome him back and bring him back with the guys and get to work,” Mahomes said. “I’m happy that we get to welcome him back and [Hill] will be there at training camp and we can build that chemistry for the season.”

Hill released a statement via Twitter, in which he thanked the league, the National Football League Players Association and the Chiefs, among others, while vowing to continue to work hard as a teammate and a father.
