According to multiple sources, Buffalo Bills running back LeSean McCoy, formerly of the Philadelphia Eagles, is being investigated after two off-duty Philadelphia police officers were assaulted and seriously injured in early Sunday morning at the Recess Lounge.
The police report states that two officers were hospitalized as a result of their injuries. One officer suffered a fractured skull, with broken ribs and a broken nose. McCoy was joined by Curtis Brinkley who played in the NFL and won the 2011 Ed Block Courage Award.
Mike Rodak tweeted out the official police report:
There is a video of the off-duty cops and both McCoy and Brinkley being ejected from the scene, but the video did not capture the brawl that took place.
The Buffalo Bills have issued their own statement on the matter:
“We are aware of the reports regarding LeSean McCoy and in the process of gathering more information. We will not provide any further comment at this time.”
Even though McCoy does not have a history of off-the-field incidents, if the allegations prove to be true, it is hard to see a scenario in which the 27-year-old running back plays another down in the NFL. He was a member of the Eagles from 2009-14 before being traded to Buffalo.
