Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Tyreek Hill speaks on 35-3 victory over the Oakland Raiders on Sunday, Dec. 30, 2018, saying "We are all focused...it feels great, but we just want to win a Super Bowl."

Tyreek Hill is present for the opening phase of the Chiefs’ offseason workout program.

Chiefs coach Andy Reid said he spoke to Hill, the team’s No. 1 wide receiver, after he arrived at the team’s practice facility on Monday.

Hill has not made a public comment since Overland Park police, the Johnson County District Attorney’s Office and the Kansas Department for Children and Families confirmed they are investigating alleged incidents of battery and child abuse or neglect involving Hill at his home.

A spokesperson for the Johnson County DA’s office said on Monday afternoon that the investigation involving Hill is still ongoing.

“I know you’re going to potentially ask about Tyreek,” Reid said. “Tyreek is here. I don’t have anything further to tell you from the statement we put out. There’s been no new news on it. I’m going to leave it at that. I have had a chance to say hello to him. I have done that. And again, see him in the meeting.”

Reid said Hill is taking part in the team’s workouts Monday.

Asked if the team is altering its offseason plans based on Hill’s situation, Reid said, “No, we’re full steam ahead.”

Earlier this month, Hill shared a video on his YouTube page that showed he was preparing for the upcoming season.

At one point, Hill said in the video: “Two times a day, baby. Cheetah coming back, man. Stronger, baby. Fastest in the game.”

Reid, general manager Brett Veach and other team officials said at last month’s NFL owners meetings that they have not contacted Hill since news of the initial investigation broke. Hill’s agent, Drew Rosenhaus, declined comment. The investigations remain ongoing and no charges have been filed.

“I’m not there to judge on that,” Reid said. “That’s what’s taking place now. I’m here to coach.”
