NFL investigators met with Chiefs wide receiver Tyreek Hill for eight hours Wednesday in Kansas City.

The interview, which lasted from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Central time, was conducted by NFL Special Counsel for Investigations Lisa Friel, sources told The Star. Jennifer Gaffney, who works with Friel, was also reportedly present, along with Hill’s legal representation.

The meeting is part of the league’s investigation following a child abuse probe by Johnson County and Kansas officials involving Hill and his fiancee, Crystal Espinal. Hill is facing a potential suspension under the NFL’s Personal Conduct Policy, but a league source told The Star there’s optimism that Hill, who’s been suspended from teach activities since April 25, will be with the team for training camp.
