No suspension for McCoy

Local Sports
Report- Bills RB LeSean McCoy met with Philadelphia D-A-_86175068-159532

LeSean McCoy will be in uniform for week one in Baltimore.

Reportedly, the NFL will not take any action against the Bills running back after he was involved in a night club fight back in February.

The news was first reported by the Buffalo News’ Vic Carucci, but has since been confirmed in multiple places.

A second investigation into the case by the Pennsylvania Attorney General cleared McCoy of any legal issues on Friday. Same as the Philadelphia District Attorney did in April.

It’s been a good day for the Bills on the suspension front.

News on McCoy broke minutes after a federal appeals court rejected a Tom Brady appeal of his Deflategate suspension.

Brady now has 90 days to file an appeal with the Supreme Court, but that won’t likely be decided before his suspension is complete. 

Brady’s more immediate option is likely to ask the federal appeals court for a stay within the next seven days. It will almost certainly be denied. 

However, Brady must ask for the stay of the lower court first before he can do the same of the Supreme Court.

With the Supreme Court in recess, Ruth Bader Ginsburg is the circuit justice assigned to the 2nd Circuit appeals court. It’s possible she may make the ultimate determination on whether Brady plays the first four games this year. 

The odds are still long against Brady playing. That means he would sit out is the Patriots’ annual home contest against the Bills.
