KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — The Kansas City Chiefs have released running back Kareem Hunt following the NFL’s decision to place him on the exempt list. The moves came after video surfaced that showed the NFL’s reigning rushing champion knocking over and kicking a woman in a Cleveland hotel hallway last Feb. 10. The video acquired and published by TMZ shows Hunt lunging toward a woman and several others in the hotel hallway, and the second-year pro being restrained several times.
