What did the Kansas City Chiefs know, and when did they know it? That's one of the many questions that will plague the Chiefs, and the NFL, as the fallout of the recently released Kareem Hunt video continues.

For a refresher: TMZ Sports released a video on Friday afternoon allegedly showing Kareem Hunt attacking a woman in a Cleveland hotel back in February.

In the days and weeks following the incident, no charges would be filed and no punishments would be handed down by the Chiefs or the NFL. But the latest report from football reporter Benjamin Allbright could paint the Chiefs and the NFL in a very harsh light.

Allbright tweeted that both the Chiefs and the league were aware of the existence of the video that TMZ ultimately made public.

Whether or not anyone at either organization ultimately viewed the video either before or after the decision not to punish Hunt is unknown.

Hunt led the NFL in rushing as a rookie in 2017. He earned Pro Bowl honors while recording over 1,700 yards from scrimmage and 11 total TDs.

As of writing, the Chiefs and the league have yet to make a statement on the incident.
