Recently released Kansas City Chiefs running back Kareem Hunt wants to learn his immediate fate on Monday at 4 p.m. ET when the waiver wire comes out. Hunt might not learn until the offseason when he / she is ready for a NFL team again.
, Hunt faces more than the baseline six-game suspension for violation of the NFL's personal conduct policy. Hunt allegedly punching a man in the face at Ohio resort in June.

That's not a given.
This is a video of a Cleveland hotel showing Hunt shoving and kicking a woman. The Chiefs released him after stating he song to them by greatly minimizing the incident. He later apologized in a statement: "I deeply regret what I did."
The NFL, which never closes its investigation into Hunt, hopes to move quickly. Hunt also wants to be interviewed.
One complication could be Cleveland Police Dept. begins investigating again; that could prolong the NFL's investigation and disciplinary action. While the video was made public Friday, the outcry was more than just Hunt's actions. Neither the NFL, nor the Chiefs, has released it.
The league also asked Cleveland police for it and were told they did not have it.
According to sergeant Jennifer Ciaccia of the Cleveland Police Department, she does not believe anyone with the video, either. Officers filed two police reports, but the video was not part of the investigation file.
It was a misdemeanor case, they said, and they do not follow up on them with felonies. In other words, detectives did not go back for the video. They are victims of the city prosecutor's file charges.
