No suspension forthcoming for LeSean McCoy, per report

New, comments

After two months of speculation, it sounds like McCoy won't be missing any time for the Bills this season because of his alleged involvement in a bar fight

Buffalo Bills running back LeSean McCoy is not expected to face NFL discipline following his involvement in a February night club fight in Philadelphia, according to a report from Ian Rapoport of NFL Network.

The Philadelphia DA's office announced just last week that charges would not be brought against McCoy in the incident, which you can catch up on in full at our StoryStream on the topic. The only remaining hurdle was whether or not the NFL would impose a suspension on the Bills' star running back for landing in the situation in the first place - and while Rapoport cautions that the investigation remains ongoing, it doesn't sound like McCoy will be missing any time.

Rapoport also points out that the Bills had been planning on McCoy being suspended this entire offseason, so it's not difficult to imagine that there's a small bit of fist-pumping going on at One Bills Drive right now.

In his first year with the Bills last season, McCoy accounted for 1,187 all-purpose yards and five total touchdowns in 12 games. He'll turn 28 in July, just a couple of weeks before trotting onto the field at his second Bills training camp atop a Bills running back depth chart that currently also includes Karlos Williams, Mike Gillislee, and James Wilder, Jr.
