Kareem Hunt 'embarrassed' by video of attack on woman

Kareem Hunt cut by Kansas City Chiefs after alleged assault video on woman emerges

Mahomes gave a quick but powerful response when asked about Hunt's actions saying, "I've talked to him, but I'll keep it between me and him". Hunt, 23, played in each of Kansas City's first 11 games and entered Sunday's contests with the fifth-most rushing yards in the league.

The league then made a halfhearted attempt to get the video of the February incident and interview the victims. Hunt is shown being restrained several times by friends before pushing a woman to the ground, when he proceeds to kick her. Police were called to the scene during the February 10 incident, no charges were filed and no punishment was handed out by the NFL.

The Chiefs moved swiftly once the video was made public Friday.

That deal would have established Hunt as the NFL's third highest-paid running back by average salary per season.

The league reiterated that point in a new statement Sunday.

Hunt said, "I'm definitely not that type of person and my mother raised me right ..." "I didn't think about football or how it would have an impact on this locker room or on our season at all".

"It was definitely some things that were said and did that I did not like", he said. Some time that he needs to take. "I'm never going to call myself an expert". Hopefully he has those people around him in that circle who are going to help him through that. As we've done in the past, when things come up that's where we go.

"I just want to let the world know how sorry I am for my actions".

"As part of our internal discussions with Kareem, several members of our management team spoke directly to him", the Chiefs said in a statement.

Andy Reid is proud of the way his players and coaching staff have been handling the Kareem Hunt situation over the past few days.

"Those kinds of things are never easy", he noted. "I'm really disappointed and embarrassed in myself". Nearly immediately, TMZ reported, the Chiefs sent Hunt home early from a practice.

Hunt also told ESPN that the National Football League never questioned him about that night.

"It was just a long night, and to be exact it don't really matter what happened", he said. "We had business to take care of". We got to stay distraction-free. We won't let anything that happens on the outside dictate or control what we have inside. "It's a tough situation".
