It’s been almost two weeks since news first broke of Tyreek Hill being under investigation for two instances of child abuse.
Andy Reid has not spoken with Tyreek Hill since learning of the alleged battery and child abuse on the advice of the Chiefs’ counsel.
“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.”
When the video dropped showing Kareem Hunt pushing and kicking a woman in a Cleveland hotel back in November, the Chiefs moved fairly quickly by releasing him.
As far as Hill is concerned, they are patiently waiting for more information on Hill’s situation.
“If we’re going to make a move like [cutting Hunt], it’s pretty well thought out, and so we try to gather the information and then go from there,” Reid said.
“Did I expect it to happen? I don’t know what happened exactly,” Reid said. “I mean, I don’t know. That’s what we’re trying to figure out.”
The Chiefs have had internal discussions, but anything after that will be determined based on the outcome of the investigation.
“You always want to make sure everybody’s OK, and then let it run its course and make sure you let that part happen,” Reid said. “. . .As a coach, or a human, you’re going to have things that happen. You deal with it.”
