The Kansas City Chiefs announced wide receiver Tyreek Hill "will not take part in any team activities" until the team makes a decision on his future.

Just before the NFL draft kicked off on Thursday night, an audio recording of Hill and his fiancee, Crystal Espinal, leaked revealing their conversation on the events that led to their three-year-old son suffering a broken arm.

In the audio, Espinal, paraphrasing the boy, says "Daddy did it...He is terrified of you."

Hill responds, according to the recording: "You need to be terrified of me, too, b----."

Late Thursday night, Chiefs general manager Brett Veach announced Hill has been suspended from team activities.

"We were deeply disturbed by what we heard, we were deeply concerned. We decided that at this time and for the foreseeable future, Tyreek Hill will not take part in any team activities. We are going to gather more information, we’re going to evaluate this information, and we will make the right decision regarding Tyreek Hill."

Earlier this week, it was announced that Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Tyreek Hill would not face charges of battery or child abuse in the case of his three-year-old son.

The local District Attorney revealed that while they believe a crime was committed, there wasn't enough evidence to proceed.

Stay tuned for the latest regarding Hill.
