If true, this is huge news for the Bills. According to Rapoport, Buffalo had been planning for McCoy to receive some sort of suspension.
In early February, McCoy and three of his friends were involved in an altercation with off-duty officers. The investigation for the case took almost two months to complete and at the end of the day, no charges were pressed against McCoy due to a lack of evidence.
McCoy's representatives had maintained that the running back had not done anything wrong at the nightclub and the lack of evidence supported their claim. Now, the NFL finds themselves in a similar situation. Although players can be suspended under the league's personal conduct policy, it'd be hard for the league to make a case against McCoy with little evidence. Come Week 1, there's a very good chance that Buffalo's number one back will be on the field.null
