KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Chiefs wide receiver Justin Ross has been placed on the NFL commissioner’s exempt list after being arrested this week on charges of domestic battery and criminal damage to property under $1,000.

Chiefs coach Andy Reid said he doesn’t know if Ross will return to play this season.

“We’ll let it go the way it goes,” Reid said. “That’s the purpose of this list.

“I’m not here to judge that. You go through the process in these situations…they’re all different and so you let it go. That’s the way we’re set up here in this country and in the NFL. That way.”

Ross pleaded not guilty to the two misdemeanor charges during a hearing Tuesday, and his bail was set at $2,500 with various conditions, including not having contact with the defendant or any witnesses.

He was arrested Monday in Shawnee, Kansas, a suburb of Kansas City. Ross is scheduled to appear again in court on December 4.

The domestic battery charge in Kansas that Ross faces is defined as “intentionally causing physical contact with a person with whom the offender was involved or was involved in a dating relationship, family, or household member, when done in a rude, insulting, or angry manner.” road.”

Items in the property damage charge, according to Shawnee police, include a laptop, a computer monitor, an iPhone, a gold bracelet and a car key. He was originally charged with damages over $1,000, but the charge has since been amended to a misdemeanor and damages under $1,000.
