NFL places Chiefs WR Justyn Ross on commissioner's exempt list after arrest, per reports

Oct 27, 2023

The NFL placed Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Justyn Ross on the commissioner’s exempt list, according to multiple reports Friday.

With the designation, Ross is not allowed to practice or attend games. It's a form of paid leave after the 23-year-old was arrested Monday and eventually charged with two misdemeanors of domestic battery and criminal damage.

He was apprehended Monday in Shawnee, Kansas. The initial felony charge was for damage more than $25,000, per multiple outlets, including KMBC. Hours before his scheduled Tuesday afternoon hearing, the Johnson County Sheriff's Office booking report was amended to a charge for damage of less than $1,000, which is a misdemeanor, according to KCTV.
