NFL Hasn’t Decided Whether Bills RB LeSean McCoy Will Face Discipline For Role In Nightclub Altercation


ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports the NFL has yet to decide whether Bills RB LeSean McCoy will face discipline for his role in a nightclub brawl that took place in Philadelphia a few months ago.

This comes in contrast to a report from Monday that said McCoy was not expected to face discipline from the league for this matter.


Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that the Bills RB LeSean McCoy is not expected to face any discipline from the NFL for his role in nightclub altercation a few months ago.

Although, the NFL is still conducting their investigation into the matter.

According to Rapoport, the Bills had planned all offseason for some sort of suspension for McCoy, but with a lack of evidence in the altercation, he is not expect to face any sort of ban to open the 2016 season.

The Philadelphia District Attorney’s office announced last week that McCoy won’t face charges for his alleged role in the matter, so it appears as though he’s in the clear moving forward, barring a change in the league’s investigation.

McCoy, 27, is in the second year of his five-year, $40 million contract that included $26.05 million guaranteed. He stands to make a base salary of $4.8 million for the 2016 season.

In 2015, McCoy appeared in 12 games for the Bills and ran for 895 yards on 203 carries (4.4 YPC) to go along with 32 receptions for 292 yards receiving and five total touchdowns for the Bills. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 31 running back out of 67 qualifying players.

We’ll have more updates regarding the Bills and McCoy as the news becomes available.
