Buffalo Bills general manager Brandon Beane said Thursday he expects running back LeSean McCoy to be with the team despite an ongoing police investigation into his possible involvement in a home invasion in an Atlanta suburb.
“We’ve communicated with (the NFL). We feel comfortable that LeSean is going to be here and ready to roll. We don’t see that changing,” Beane said Thursday.
According to police reports, the July 10 incident took place at a home McCoy owns. His ex-girlfriend alleges she was beaten and jewelry McCoy had alleged asked her to return to him was taken.
The NFL has said it is still looking into the matter and will offer no update until there’s a change in McCoy’s status. If there is no status change, there likely will be no statement from the NFL.
McCoy deflected multiple questions about the incident and his relationship with the woman who alleged the attack, citing an “open police investigation.”
However, McCoy did say he’s confident he will be on the field and with the team.
“I’m here right now, so I feel very confident,” McCoy said.
Police in Milton, Ga., have not named any suspects in the invasion of the house, which McCoy owns. The alleged victim said through an attorney she thinks McCoy was involved in some way, but stopped short of accusing McCoy of being the ringleader.
McCoy’s attorney, Don Samuel, has declined comment.
