Kareem Hunt went unclaimed on NFL waivers Monday Ron Parker Jersey
, three days after a video was released that showed the star running back shoving and kicking a woman in an incident that ultimately led to his release by the Kansas City Chiefs.Police did not charge ful with them about what happened during the February incident. Hunt currently is on the commissioner's exempt list and cannot play even if another team signs him. The NFL says it is continuing its investigation.Also on Monday, a police report surfaced in which a suburban Kansas City man told police that Hunt was among a group of men that assaulted him during a nightclub altercation in January.The incident happened Jan. 11 at Mosaic, a club in downtown Kansas City. The 38-year-old victim was treated at a hospital for a broken rib, broken nose and other injuries. But as was the case in the assault captured on a Cleveland hotel security camera, no criminal charges were filed in the case.The Chiefs declined to comment on the January incident."I think I'm hoping and would like Kareem to get help along, you know, obviously with everybody involved in it," Chiefs coach Andy Reid said more broadly. "I just think it's a tough deal. It's not a win-win situation for anybody, the young lady (in the Cleveland incident) included."My prayers are that everybody involved gets help there most of all," Reid said, "because we're all in this fraternity in our earth-life, and we're all living together."Hunt acknowledged he misled the Chiefs about the incident in Cleveland during a live interview with ESPN on Sunday. He also apologized to those that were affected by his actions."You can't really explain it. The video shows it," Hunt said. "I was in the wrong and I'm not that type of person. I'm really disappointed and embarrassed in myself."Hunt admitted he may have anger issues, and he said that "I've taken action to learn from this." But when asked whether he had sought counseling, Hunt said he had not."I feel like everybody gets a little angry sometimes, and I'm going to get treatment on it. I want to make sure nothing like this ever happens again," he said. "I've worked my whole entire life. I've gave everything and sacrificed for this. And if I get another shot, the team won't regret it."Last month, the Redskins claimed linebacker Reuben Foster off waivers after he was released by the 49ers following a domestic violence arrest in Tampa, Florida. It was only the latest in a series of legal troubles for Foster, who remains on the exempt list and is facing a league suspension.Washington drew criticism for the signing, and coach Jay Gruden admitted Foster might never play for the Redskins. But they would retain his rights if he ever steps on the field again.Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce said he has not spoken to Hunt, but sent him a text message."I let him know that we are thinking of him and that he's always going to be our brother, and to let a few things settle down," Kelce said. "He needs to understand some things, how people are viewing him right now. I'll eventually get to him and get in his ear. He knows we love him."Lions tight end Michael Roberts, who played with Hunt at Toledo, said he briefly spoke with Hunt since the video was released. Roberts said he's hopeful that Hunt winds up back in the NFL."Other than be supportive, there's not much you can say to him or anyone in that situation," Roberts said." It's just about the next step for him and his mental (state) and whatever organization he, you know, hopefully ends up with."I just hope he does (play again)," Roberts added. "I know this is what he wants, what he strives for. We were together when we had nothing. I just wish him the best and also to not take any attention from the woman. I hope she mentally is dealing with it all as well."AP freelancer Matt Schoch in Detroit contributed to this report. The Kansas City Chiefs finally got Justin Houston back onto the field Sunday against Arizona, and the four-time Pro Bowl linebacker made one of the plays of the game when he picked off Cardinals quarterback Josh Rosen on a second-half screen pass.The Chiefs also got safety Daniel Sorensen back from injured reserve Allen Bailey Jersey
, where he had resided since breaking his leg in training camp, and he five tackles while providing a hard-hitting presence.Perhaps it's no surprise the Chiefs defense played the best it has all season.With two of their anticipated starters back on the field, the Chiefs held the Cardinals to 260 yards in a 26-14 victory. They sacked Rosen five times, intercepted him twice and even managed to keep David Johnson under 100 yards rushing 鈥?just barely."I feel like the first couple weeks we were putting too much into it, trying too hard," linebacker Reggie Ragland said. "We're having fun with it. Whatever happens, happens. It's football. We've been playing this game for too long for us not to have fun with it. It's a child's game and we're grown men playing it, so have fun with it. Don't worry about all that other stuff."The Chiefs (9-1) sure looked as if they were having a ball Sunday.Dee Ford had his ninth sack of the season, not to mention three tackles for a loss and four hits on Rosen. Allen Bailey had his fifth sack while Chris Jones had two more to give him a career-high seven for the season, including at least one sack in six consecutive games.All told, Rosen was hit 13 times and fumbled once while throwing for just 208 yards and a score."The one thing we're doing right now is we are minimizing big plays," defensive tackle Jarvis Jenkins said. "That is one thing we all play on is minimizing big plays, then getting them one-dimensional so we can rush the passer. I think we did that this game."The only game in which the defense played nearly as well was Cincinnati, when the Chiefs allowed 239 yards in a 45-10 rout. But it's often easier to play stingy defense when the game has gotten out of hand, and on Sunday the Chiefs needed to show up in a game that Arizona managed to keep relatively close."That's happened a couple of times now, things have stalled out (on offense) then they step up and make plays," Chiefs coach Andy Reid said. "That's a great thing. We need that as a football team. We need that. It's important."Especially given who is up next: The Chiefs are headed to Mexico City to face the high-flying Los Angeles Rams on Monday night in a matchup of two of the NFL's most dynamic offenses.The Rams are second in yards-per-game and the Chiefs are third, and those rankings are flipped when it comes to scoring with Kansas City second and Los Angeles third.In other words, it's a good time for the Chiefs' maligned defense to start showing up.They can still get a whole lot better, too. Middle linebacker Anthony Hitchens was out Sunday with bruised ribs, and backup linebacker Frank Zombo missed the game with a hamstring injury, giving undrafted rookie Ben Niemann a chance to start his first NFL game."I was still on four phases of special teams," Niemann said, "so I got a little tired out there. But it was good. You want to play. You want to play as many snaps as possible."Someone else who wants to play? Eric Berry, the Chiefs' star safety, who still hasn't played since tearing his Achilles' tendon in the season opener last year. Berry practiced throughout the summer and into training camp, but a heel injury has kept him off the field for months.It would be another boon for the Chiefs defense if he can return in any effective capacity."Sooner or later, it has to be the defense (stepping up)," Jenkins said. "That's part of being a team. You can't be one-dimensional. I think the feeling we have now is it's a good team. It wasn't pretty (Sunday) but we got it done. That's what we have to do."Notes: Reid said Monday he's not concerned about the field conditions at Azteca Stadium, where the combination of concerts and soccer matches have wrecked the turf. "I've seen it," Reid said, "but I think the NFL is on top of it. They do a great job with all that stuff." ... Reid said he doesn't expect Patrick Mahomes to miss practice after his girlfriend's stepfather died suddenly on Sunday. The Chiefs are off on Tuesday and Wednesday. "He's here this morning and he's got things set there, organized and settled down," Reid said, "so he can do what he's got to do here."
