KANSAS CITY, Mo. The NFL will not take action against Tyreek Hill, saying in a statement Friday morning that league officials could not determine the Kansas City Chiefs’ wide receiver violated its Personal Conduct Policy.

With the ruling, Hill is allowed to attend the Chiefs training camp and can participate in all club activities, the league said. It did note Hill will be subject to certain conditions laid down by the Johnson Co. District Court, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell, and the team, including clinical evaluation and therapeutic intervention.

Shortly after the decision was released, the Chiefs said the team has "decided it was appropriate" for Hill to return when training camp began, saying:

"The club fully fully supports the conditions for return laid out by the league and will continue to monitor any new developments in the case. We are glad to welcome Tyreek back to the team and look forward to the start of training camp next week."

The Chiefs suspended Hill on April 25 over allegations that his 3-year-old son was abused, which Hill denies. The local district attorney said in June that an investigation was no longer active because he couldn't prove who injured the boy.

According to the NFL, its investigators took pains to avoid interfering with the criminal investigation against Hill and they have not seen the details of the court proceedings, which are under seal.

On June 7, the Johnson County District Attorney's Office announced the criminal investigation into Hill is no longer active. His case with the Kansas Department for Children and Families is still ongoing.

The league statement added that, if new evidence were revealed, it would “promptly” reconsider its decision and take “appropriate steps.”
