OLATHE, Kan. — A prosecutor says he is no longer actively investigating a criminal case against Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Tyreek Hill involving alleged injuries to his 3-year-old son.

Johnson County Attorney Steve Howe told The Kansas City Star he would reconsider his decision if new evidence emerges against Hill, who has been suspended from the team since April 25 after a television station aired a recording of a conversation between Hill and his fiancee, Crystal Espinal, about the boy's treatment.

In news conference a day earlier, Howe said he believed the boy had been hurt but would not file charges because he couldn't prove who did it.

The Kansas Department for Children and Families continues to investigate the couple after police were called to the Hill's home twice in March.

Hill has maintained his innocence. Chiefs spokesman Ted Crews declined comment Friday.

Hill played for Oklahoma State in 2014 before coach Mike Gundy dismissed him from the team, following a December 2014 domestic violence arrest. He transferred to West Alabama for the 2015 season.
