Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Tyreek Hill was suspended by the team following the leak of audio recordings that caught Hill on tape making some despicable comments pertaining to his treatment of his fiancee and young son.

However, following an investigation of the matter, neither Hill nor fiancee Crystal Espinal have been determined to have broken their three-year-old son's arm last January.

Investigators came to the conclusion that the broken arm was a result of an accident that could typically happen with a young child-- the broken bone was consistent with reaching out in front of you to brace yourself from a fall.

It was reported several days ago that Hill will not be facing criminal charges after his child abuse case was reopened. Despite Hill being cleared of these charges and likely rejoining the team very soon, questions will surely remain about his character in terms of his treatment of those closest to him behind closed doors. He'll be spared the worst of the justice system, but there's still much work to do to earn back the trust of many around him.
