NFL insider Ian Rapoport appeared on NFL Network’s Up to the Minute Live to discuss the latest on the Tyreek Hill situation early Wednesday afternoon. News that Hill was involved in an investigation for alleged battery broke on March 15.

RAPOPORT: “[The investigation] is still ongoing, and from the NFL’s standpoint, they have interestingly not taken any substantial action against Tyreek Hill. He has not, for instance, been placed, on the commissioner’s exempt report. He has not been suspended or anything close to that by the Kansas City Chiefs although Andy Reid said he has not spoken to him since the local authority investigation began. My understanding, Andrew (Siciliano), is the NFL itself is not expected to rule or come to any conclusion on Tyreek Hill until child protected services finishes their investigation. It is a complex matter. It involves apparently a child. There is a lot of answers that need to be figured out, a lot of things that are still very much up in the air regarding what even happened during that day, the days leading up to it and everything involved in the situation. It does not sound like anyone is close to coming up with a decision about the future of Tyreek Hill.”

The general message of Rapoport’s report is that league and the Chiefs are in a holding pattern until child protective services to concludes its investigation. At that point, both the league and the Chiefs will come to a decision regarding potential repercussions for Hill.

As Rapoport said, the latest from Reid is that the Chiefs have not been in touch with Hill, as advised by the organization’s legal counsel. There were rumors last week that the Chiefs were shopping Hill earlier this offseason.
