Justyn Ross Suspended For Six Games For Violating Personal Conduct Policy

The NFL suspended Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Justyn Ross six games for violating the league’s personal conduct policy.

Ross has missed the past five games while on the commissioner’s exempt list, so his suspension will be lifted after Sunday’s game against the Buffalo Bills.

Ross was arrested in Shawnee, Kansas, a suburb of Kansas City, in October and charged with domestic battery with no priors, a misdemeanor, and criminal damage to property between $1,000 and $25,000, a felony.

The NFL has suspended Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Justyn Ross six games for violating the league’s personal conduct policy, per ESPN’s Adam Schefter, who further clarified that he’ll be able to return after his team’s contest against the Buffalo Bills on Sunday since he already sat five matchups while on the Commissioner Exempt List.

“Chiefs’ WR Justyn Ross, who has missed the last five games on the Commissioner Exempt List after an October incident, will be suspended six regular season games for violating the Personal Conduct Policy, per the NFL.”

The NFL placed Ross on the Commissioner Exempt List after Shawnee, Kansas, police arrested Ross on misdemeanor charges of domestic battery and criminal property damage of less than $1,000, per ESPN’s Adam Teicher.

Per an affidavit procured by TMZ Sports, Ross’ girlfriend told police that the ex-Clemson wideout assaulted her and broke or damaged some of her possessions, including knifing her Mercedes.

“Officials say the woman also told cops Ross broke several of her items during the confrontation, including jewelry, a cellphone, a laptop and her Mercedes key.”

Per Andrea Klick of the Kansas City Star on Nov. 27, charges against Ross could be dropped after a period of time after the Johnson County District Court approved his diversion agreement.

“Ross was charged last month with domestic battery with no priors and criminal damage to property.”

The agreement, approved Wednesday, will include terms and conditions that Ross must follow in order to have his charges dismissed.

Court officials say that if he does not violate the terms of the agreement over an agreed-upon period of time, the charges may be dropped.

Ross joined the Chiefs as an undrafted free agent in 2022. Ross has appeared in seven games this season and made three catches for 34 yards.
