For Hunt, as for the Chiefs and others, seeing the video made all the difference and it's something he didn't see until Friday. The video, which has no sound, shows Ottinger appear to follow Hunt into the hallway and say something to the player, who breaks free and pushes a man into Ottinger, sending them both to the ground and her face-first into a wall. "I'm ashamed of myself". "We have to let you go.' It was a tough conversation", Hunt said. He was quickly was placed on the commissioner's exempt list, a paid-leave procedure that came to prominence in 2014 when the league used it to keep running back Adrian Peterson and defensive end Greg Hardy off the field indefinitely while they faced legal charges in high-profile cases. Ware, who led the Chiefs in rushing in 2016, only to lose the starting job to Hunt last season because of a season-ending knee injury in the preseason, rushed for 47 yards and a touchdown against the Raiders.

"I was definitely upset". That's just how I look at it. "And those [players] are like my brothers", he added. As the NFL Network's reliable Ian Rapaport put it, "Neither the NFL, nor the #Chiefs, had seen the video before it was published today".

Hunt said he has yet to reach out to Ottinger. "And I know that's where I masked a lot of my problems". Hunt has not been charged, NFL.com says. "The NFL's ongoing investigation will include further attempts to speak to the complainants involved in the incident". The NFL said in a statement Friday it began investigating "immediately" after the incident in February.

The documents were not released at the hearing, but the member, Damion Collins, referenced them during questioning. Canada is continuing to investigate data breaches of personal information of more than 600,000 Canadian users.

While he won't play the rest of this season, Hunt could be back in the NFL as soon as next year - unless enough people make it clear they will no longer support the league with their cash if it continues to give players like Hunt multiple chances.

Days later, the linebacker was claimed by the Washington Redskins, although he, too, will not be activated until a league investigation is concluded. I reached out to sportswriter and former attorney for domestic violence survivors Julie DiCaro, and she said, "It's pretty remarkable that the National Football League, with all its resources, is unable to get its hands on vital pieces of evidence like the video of Hunt's assault".

Kansas City released the running back after video surfaced of an altercation with a female. "I'm never going to call myself an expert. And that's where this could be a teaching tool".
