As the spring league meeting continues in Key Biscayne, Florida, NFL commissioner Roger Goodell appeared before the press on Wednesday to answer questions about what the league is discussing during their deliberations.

Unsurprisingly, Goodell was asked about the situation surrounding Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Tyreek Hill, whom the Chiefs have suspended from all team activities while investigations into allegations of child abuse or neglect involving Hill’s son are continued by the Johnson County District Attorney and the Kansas Department for Children and Families.

“As you know, there’s a court proceeding still going on involving [the DCF],” said Goodell. “We will not interfere with that. The priority is this young child. So obviously we will be cooperative of what the court wants.”

Goodell said that as soon as the league can, it will get as much information as it can.

“We are prepared to go ahead and have an interview whenever we have the permission to do so,” he explained. ”And then we’ll make a determination based on what information we have at that point in time. I won’t speculate about where we’ll go, but we’ll certainly get all the information we can as soon as possible.”

Except for the implication that the league has not yet spoken to Hill himself about the allegations, Goodell’s statement provided little new information.
