Hill cheered in Chiefs’ first practice

Tyreek Hill participated in the Kansas City Chiefs’ first practice on Saturday and the reaction was all positive.The team’s standout receiver/returner was heavily cheered and showed his appreciation by pumping his arms and high-stepping on the field at Missouri Western State University in St. Joseph, Mo.Hill endured an offseason of turmoil as the NFL investigated child-abuse allegations against him before announcing on July 19 that he didn’t violate the league’s personal-conduct policy.Kansas City suspended Hill from its offseason program in April. At the same time, Hill and then-fiancee Crystal Espinal were being investigated by authorities after their 3-year-old son allegedly suffered a broken arm.Hill wasn’t available to the media after the practice so he has yet to publicly answer questions since avoiding suspension. He did greet fans and sign autographs.Hill used his speed to catch three deep throws from quarterback Patrick Mahomes, and that was something coach Andy Reid enjoyed.”He had to go get ’em and he got ’em,” Reid said afterward. “That’s a good thing.”
