(CNN)After audio was made public purportedly of wide receiver Tyreek Hill's fiancée suggesting the NFL star broke their 3-year-old son's arm, the Kansas City Chiefs announced Thursday night that Hill will not participate in team activities.
NFL's Tyreek Hill pulled from team activities after audio reveals purported discussion of alleged child abuse
The man identified as Hill also is heard on the recording telling his fiancée, "You need to be terrified of me, too, b----."
CNN has not authenticated the audio, which was obtained and published Thursday by CNN affiliate KCTV. Its release follows the announcement by a Kansas prosecutor that Hill and his fiancée, Crystal Espinal, will not be criminally charged in connection with an investigation into their child's welfare.
The recording, which is believed to date to early March, appears to have influenced the Chiefs' decision to sideline Hill.
"Earlier this evening, we were made aware of the audio between Tyreek and Crystal," Chiefs general manager Brett Veach told reporters.
"We were made aware of this information in real time, just like the general public," he said. "We were deeply disturbed by what we heard and deeply concerned. Now, obviously, we have great concern for Crystal, we are greatly concerned for Tyreek, but our main focus, main concern, is with the young child."
