Pro Football Talk's Mike Florio believes that Bills running back LeSean McCoy could wind up on the Commissioner Exempt List regardless of the legal outcome of his domestic abuse allegations. He believes that the nature of the attacks on Delicia Cordon and possible P.R. backlash could compel the league to keep McCoy off the field.
It is still too early to jump to conclusions on what could happen to McCoy legally, but there is a real threat that he misses time regardless of his guilt or innocence. Last season, Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott was suspended six games for a domestic violence issue he was not ever charged with in court. Chris Ivory would be the lead running back if McCoy were to miss time, but the Bills may also look to a veteran such as DeMarco Murray or Adrian Peterson in free agency.
