LeSean McCoy will avoid suspension in night club fight, per report

There was a lingering question, but it appears McCoy will play unfettered next season.

Recently, local authorities in Philadelphia announced that LeSean McCoy would not receive any charges in connection with a February incident at a Philadelphia nightclub in which a group of off-duty police officers brawled with McCoy's group of friends, injuring the officers. While the legal system happened to work out in McCoy's favor, the question still remained whether or not the NFL would take action of its own and suspend McCoy for violating the league's personal conduct policy. Roger Goodell had taken similar action when Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger was accused of sexual assault, despite the lack of formal charges in that case.

On Wednesday, The Buffalo News' Vic Carucci reported that McCoy will not face any punishment from the league for the nightclub incident, clearing him to play for the full season in 2016:

With that, the Bills can rest easy knowing that their star running back will be available from the start of the season.
