Tyreek Hill is being investigated over child abuse allegations.
On Thursday, an audio recording was released in which Hill is heard discussing his three-year-old son's broken arm, and how he and his fiancée should deal with an investigation into how it happened.
In the 11-minute clip, Hill's fiancee, Crystal Espinal, is heard asking the two-time All-Pro why their son said, "Daddy did it," in reference to his injured arm. Hill is heard at one point telling Espinal, "You need to be terrified of me, too, b----."
The Chiefs issued a statement on Friday in response to the recording.
"We were made aware of the audio between Tyreek and Crystal," the Chiefs said. "We were made aware of this information in real time, just like the general public. We were deeply disturbed and concerned by what we heard. We have great concern for Crystal, we are greatly concerned for Tyreek, but our main concern is with the young child."
In 2015, Hill pleaded guilty to domestic violence charges for punching and choking Espinal while she was pregnant. He was sentenced to three years probation but eventually selected by Kansas City in the fifth round in the 2016 NFL draft.
Last season, the Chiefs released running back Kareem Hunt in November after a video was released showing him pushing and kicking a woman in a Cleveland hotel in February 2018. The Browns signed Hunt this past February even though he was on the Commissioner's Exempt List. In March he was suspended eight games for violating the league's personal conduct policy.
