The NFL did reach out to the woman and her friend, but they did not respond.
The NFL is investigating an incident in which the now former Chiefs star running back allegedly punched a man in the face at a resort in OH, according to NFL Network. The NFL quickly placed Hunt on paid leave, and the Chiefs announced that he would be released, primarily because he'd lied to the team when previously asked about the situation.

Ohio State edged out of College Football Playoff
One AP Poll top 25 voter is facing serious criticism for where he ranked Ohio State in his final ballot of the season. That included a win over Lamar Jackson's Louisville squad and a loss to Notre Dame a year ago under coach Ed Orgeron.
It's unclear how much preparation Hunt had prior to the interview, or who gave it to him if he did. I was in the wrong. The video posted by TMZ comes at a sensitive time for the Chiefs and the National Football League when it comes to domestic violence.
"I realized what I did once I saw the video", he said in the interview with ESPN.
The NFL said in a statement Friday it began investigating "immediately" after the incident in February. Ware, who led the Chiefs in rushing in 2016, only to lose the starting job to Hunt last season because of a season-ending knee injury in preseason, rushed for 47 yards and a touchdown against the Raiders.
Just 40 minutes later, the Chiefs released a statement confirming they were severing ties with him. Hunt might have been the one physically on camera, but the spotlight from the coverage falls on the player, the team and the entire league at this point.

Additionally, he's been placed on the Commissioner's Exempt list and can not play until an investigation of his actions has been conducted. Cleveland Police Sgt. Jennifer Ciaccia told Cleveland.com in February that since it was a cross complaint, no charges would be filed unless one of the two (Hunt or the woman) went to the prosecutor's office and asked to have charges pursued. And no one looks good in this light. On Nov. 24, Reuben Foster of the San Francisco 49ers was arrested and charged with first-degree misdemeanor domestic violence - his second arrest this year on domestic violence charges.
"I want to apologise for my actions".
Rice said he would like to help Hunt, "because he has a long life to live, this will be a defining moment, but it shouldn't be the moment that defines you". "I think I deserve it because if you really know me and everybody that I'm really close to - I've had woman really close women that are friends and everybody. I made a bad choice and I'm not going to let this bring me down".
