Report: Bills' McCoy will not face suspension

The Buffalo Bills were preparing for the worst with running back LeSean McCoy.

Through the duration of the offseason, McCoy had his name attached to an early morning brawl at a Philadelphia night club, and there was even video that surfaced of the alleged event. The case moved from the Philadelphia police deparment to the District Attorney's office, under the recommendation that McCoy be charged.

After around two months of a thorough investigation, the D.A.'s office announced that the Bills running back would not be facing any charges for what they concluded was a lack of evidence in the case.

On the legal front, McCoy had nothing to worry about. Still, there was the issue of any potential league discipline, who suspend players for violating the NFL Personal Conduct Policy quite often.

Nothing to see there, either.

According to Ian Rapoport of NFL.com who cited multiple sources, McCoy is not expected to face any discipline from the league for his involvement in the alleged incident. Discipline means suspension and fines, which McCoy will not have to worry about in any capacity.

The report also stated that the Bills had been preparing for McCoy to face some sort of suspension this season, but that preparation is no longer necessary if the report holds.

Barring any injury or an unforseen circumstance, McCoy will be on the field for the Bills to start the 2016 regular season.
