Chiefs wide receiver Tyreek Hill met for eight hours with NFL officials today as the league continues to review whether Hill violated the league’s personal conduct policy.
Hill met with Lisa Friel, the NFL’s senior VP of Special Counsel for Investigations, and other league officials and was represented by his personal lawyer and an NFL Players Association lawyer, sources told NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport.
This was Hill’s first interview with the league and opportunity to answer to allegations of child abuse toward his 3-year-old son. The receiver also was expected to be asked in the interview about audio released by a local TV station on April 26 in which Hill is heard administering threats to his fiancée and discussing using a belt to discipline his son, Rapoport added.

There is no timetable for a ruling on Hill’s case, Rapoport reported.
Hill is expected to report to the Chiefs for training camp when it begins on July 26 barring a significant development in the case. The receiver has been banned by Kansas City from team activities since April 26 when KCTV5 released the aforementioned audio.
Looks like the NFL wants to get Tyreek Hill over with this week and rule around the 4th of July. I take that to mean he’s less likely to get a significant suspension.
