The Kansas City Chiefs have not yet released Tyreek Hill, and the troubled wide receiver is remaining in the news with another report coming out.
Tyreek Hill can’t be excited about Tuesday night. Earlier in the day, it was reported by Carrington Harrison of 610 Radio in Kansas City that the local CBS affiliate will have a new report at 6 p.m. CT regarding Hill and his fiancee, Crystal Espinal. The report is also expected to cover an incident that led to the removal of their 3-year-old son from his home.
As of this writing, Hill remains a member of the Kansas City Chiefs. The 25-year-old was suspended indefinitely from all team activities following the release –also by KCTV5 — of a disturbing 11-minute audio tape that included the voices of Hill and Espinal.

In the recording, Hill can clearly be heard saying “you need to be terrified of me too, [EXPLITIVE],” when speaking to his fiancee.
This came only one day after Hill and Espinal were cleared of any potential criminal charges from the Johnson County (Kan.) District Attorney’s Office. DA Stephen Howe said that while he believed a crime had occurred against the child, there was not enough evidence to bring charges against either parent. Once the audio file was released, the case was reopened on Friday. That same day, the Chiefs held a press conference to announce defensive end Frank Clark. During his days at the University of Michigan, Clark was arrested on a charge of domestic violence. The case ended with Clark pleading guilty to persistent disorderly conduct, a fourth-degree misdemeanor.
The NFL has not taken any action against the troubled receiver, although ESPN reporter Dan Graziano stated earlier in the week that Hill is expected to be put on the Commissioner’s Exempt List. Should that happen, Hill would be effectively suspended with pay until the league comes down with its final punishment.
The NFLPA has already said that should Hill be given a lifetime ban, it would fight the league on such a ruling.
