LeSean McCoy officially eligible to play Week 1
Police are still investigating a July attack on LeSean McCoy’s ex-girlfriend, but the star running back will not be placed on the commissioner’s exempt list despite the allegations the woman made against him.
On Monday, NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy confirmed to Mark Maske of the Washington Post that there has been no change to McCoy’s status. That means he will be eligible to play on Sunday when the Buffalo Bills begin their season with a road game against the Baltimore Ravens.
Police have been investigating a home invasion that took place at a home owned by McCoy over a month ago. His ex-girlfriend, Delicia Cordon, was living there at the time, and McCoy has been accused of sending people to the home to beat and rob her. McCoy claims he has not had contact with Cordon or any of the people involved with her in months.
Adrian Peterson was placed on the commissioner’s exempt list back in 2014 after he was accused of abusing his son. There has been speculation that the same could happen to McCoy given the disturbing allegations against him, but the league does not feel that is necessary at this time.
