CSN Philly - [Full Article]

Pennsylvania Solicitor General Bruce Castor said the attorney general's office will take another look into Bills running back LeSean McCoy's alleged involvement in a bar fight with two off-duty police officers in February.

“I think it’s completely accurate to say LeSean McCoy and anyone else allegedly involved in this incident are not totally cleared,” Castor said to CBS Philly.

Fantasy Impact:

The Philadelphia district attorney declined to prosecute, but the state attorney general will take another look at the case. McCoy is not completely out of the woods at this point.

Rap Sheet: Bills RB LeSean McCoy not expected to face suspension

Sources: Bills RB LeSean McCoy not expected to face NFL discipline for his role in nightclub altercation. NFL investigation still ongoing.

Fantasy Impact:

This is obviously great news for McCoy owners (not so much for Karlos Williams owners), as McCoy should be fully available for the 2016 season. Last year, McCoy finished #17 in standard formats and #19 in PPR, but was a low-end RB1 in both formats on a per game basis since he only played 12 games. He averaged 19.6 touches for 98.9 total yards per game, and should continue to see that type of workload as he enters his age 28 season. He's been going in the early 4th round in recent drafts, but his ADP should climb into the 3rd if he manages to avoid charges and suspension this summer.

It looks like Buffalo Bills running back LeSean McCoy won't be facing charges for his alleged role in a bar brawl with off-duty police officers in February.

The Philadelphia district attorney is expected to announce McCoy will face no charges related to the brawl, which took place in a Philadelphia nightclub on Feb. 7, according to the Philadelphia Inquirer's Jeff McLane.

Fantasy Impact:

The story went on to say Philadelphia District Attorney R. Seth Williams defended the ongoing investigation back at one point, saying "My only goal is to get it right, not fast. The last thing we need is a rush to judgment." According to FOX Sports NFL insider Mike Garafolo, the decision will leave some people notably displeased as several off-duty police officers suffered multiple injuries in the altercation. McCoy could still suffer some sort of punishment from the NFL for the incident, but this is going about as well as could be expected for McCoy owners at this point.

ESPN - [Full Article]

Buffalo Bills running back LeSean McCoy is under investigation over an alleged assault of off-duty police officers at a Philadelphia nightclub, according to multiple reports.

A statement released Monday by Philadelphia police said that two off-duty officers, both 40-year-old black men and members of the city's police department, were injured in a fight with four black men, aged 26 through 30, around 2:45 a.m. Sunday.

Police did not identify the four suspects, but a man familiar with the investigation confirmed to ESPN's Mark Schwarz and The Associated Press that McCoy, who played six seasons for the Philadelphia Eagles, is one of the men under investigation. The man spoke on condition of anonymity because he is not authorized to publicly discuss the case.

McCoy's offseason is not off to a good start. Depending on how this plays out, he could be suspended for part of the 2016 season. Karlos Williams is waiting in the wings.

Bills RB LeSean McCoy (knee, out) missed practice all week and is out for Week 16. This leaves Karlos Williams and Mike Gillislee sharing the Buffalo backfield. The Bills website believes that Williams will start and Gillislee will serve as a “complement.” Williams is still on the injury report with a shoulder injury and he was out-touched and out-snapped by Gillislee last week.

Bills RB Karlos Williams (shoulder) took limited practice reps again Thursday. Williams is the obvious choice to replace the likely-out LeSean McCoy, but he’s still dealing with a shoulder injury and Mike Gillislee is averaging 10.4 YPC (on 14 carries) since joining the Bills. This could be more of a timeshare than people think.

Bills head coach Rex Ryan said Monday afternoon that RB LeSean McCoy had to get an MRI on his injured knee that forced him to leave Sunday’s game in the second half. Now there are reports on the results of those tests.

According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, McCoy has a torn MCL and is week to week.

Fantasy Impact:

Schefter added that more tests will be done on Monday. The story added there’s unlikely to be an update from the team before Wednesday when Rex Ryan next addresses the media. Karlos Williams would again get the workload if McCoy is unable to play. The Bills are eliminated from the playoffs so there's no need to rush McCoy back on the field for the final two weeks.

RB LeSean McCoy has a minor MCL sprain and is thought to be day to day, a source said.

Fantasy Impact:

It's good news it wasn't more serious, but with the Bills eliminated Sunday, there's not a lot of need to rush him back. Karlos Williams would again get a bulk of the work if McCoy needs to miss any time.
