Buffalo Bills running back LeSean McCoy remains confident in his ability to play this season as he faces serious accusations following a break-in, at a home he owns, which resulted in the injuries of his ex-girlfriend, Delicia Cordon.
McCoy showed up to the Bills training camp on Thursday, where he took questions from the media for the first time since the July 10th incident involving Cordon.
During his press conference, McCoy was asked if he thought he would be available for the entire season. “I’m here right now, so I’m very confident,” McCoy said, via the Buffalo News.
Bills general manager Brandon Beane demonstrated equal confidence in reference to the status of his star running back.
“We’ve communicated with (the NFL),” Beane said. “We feel comfortable that LeSean’s going to be here and ready to roll. We don’t see that changing.”
The NFL has been looking into the situation to find out if McCoy had anything to do with the attack, which took place at a home he owns just outside of Atlanta. During the robbery, Cordon was allegedly struck in the head with a firearm and suffered injuries to her wrist when the suspect attempted to remove her jewelry. During a 911 call with police, Cordon immediately said that she thought McCoy was involved in the incident.
Although McCoy has maintained his innocence, the running back had not been willing to talk about the situation on Thursday.
“Right now, it’s an open investigation, so I’ll leave it at that,” McCoy said. “That’s what’s going on right now. But right now, my main focus is here with my teammates, my team, trying to build together in camp to reach our goal together, and that’s a championship. I’ll let (the investigation) take care of itself and right now I’m just being supported with my teammates.”
