Lawsuit not expected to affect McCoy's status on Buffalo Bills
A person familiar with the situation tells the Associated Press a lawsuit filed against Buffalo Bills running back LeSean McCoy will not affect his status on the team.
The person spoke on the condition of anonymity Monday night because Bills Head Coach Sean McDermott and General Manager Brandon Beane have not publicly commented on allegations made in a lawsuit filed by McCoy's ex-girlfriend in Fulton County, GA.
Delicia Cordon is suing McCoy for failing to protect her after she was bloodied, beaten and had $133,000 worth of jewelry stolen during a home invasion at a home owned by the running back last month.
Without blaming McCoy for playing a role in the home invasion, Cordon accuses him of breaching his duty to protect her because he owned the home. She also says McCoy "permitted a hazardous condition to exist'' by installing a new security system and cameras and denying her access to arm the system.
She also alleges McCoy brutally beat his dog and "aggressively, physically" disciplined "and beat his young son."
The home invasion took place on July 10 in suburban Atlanta.
McCoy has been allowed to practice with the Bills since training camp opened on July 26. Beane has previously said the team has done its due diligence into on the allegations and is satisfied by the conversations he's had with the NFL, which is holding its own investigation.
Police in Milton, GA are still investigating and have not identified a suspect.
