The NFL placed Kansas City Chiefs receiver Justyn Ross on the Commissioner’s Exempt List on Friday, three days after he pleaded not guilty to assault and criminal damage charges.
While Ross is on the list, he is not permitted to practice or participate in games.
The 23-year-old was released from jail on Tuesday after posting $2,500 bail. He is due back in court on December 4th. The chiefs said they were aware of his arrest but had no comment.
Ross was arrested Monday, and the Johnson County, Kansas, Sheriff’s Office initially said in his booking file that he was charged with causing damage of up to $25,000, which would have been a felony. This total was adjusted to under $1,000.
The alleged victim reportedly told a 911 dispatcher that he “dragged her through the house and tore the house up,” according to an audio recording TMZ.

Ross, who played a minor role with the reigning Super Bowl champions this season, was released from jail on Tuesday after posting $2,500 bail
The woman reportedly called from a neighbor’s phone and claimed that the call had broken her cell phone.
She also claimed that the soccer player had a gun in the apartment but did not have it on him at the time.
Domestic violence against him is defined as “knowingly inducing physical contact with a person with whom the perpetrator is or has been in a relationship, or with a family or household member, when done in a rude, insulting or angry manner.”
According to Shawnee police, items included in the property damage charges include a laptop, computer, iPhone, gold bracelet and car keys.
Ross was a bit player for the reigning Super Bowl champions this season. He was active in the first seven games but only had three catches for 34 yards.
What’s remarkable is the fact that he’s playing at all. After an outstanding first two seasons at Clemson, Ross was diagnosed with a congenital fusion disorder in his neck and spine, requiring career-threatening surgery.
Ross returned to play one more season for the Tigers and then turned pro, where the Chiefs were one of the few teams willing to release him to play for medical reasons.
