The Latest: Lawsuit won’t affect McCoy’s status with Bills
The Latest on lawsuit filed against Buffalo Bills running back LeSean McCoy (all times local):
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 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, Georgia.
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. She also alleges McCoy brutally beat his dog and aggressively disciplined his 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.
LeSean McCoy’s ex-girlfriend is suing the Buffalo Bills running back for failing to protect her after she was bloodied, beaten and had $133,000 worth of jewelry stolen during a home invasion last month.
Delicia Cordon also alleges in a lawsuit filed in Fulton County, Georgia on Friday that McCoy would “often brutally beat his dog,” and would also “aggressively, physically discipline and beat his young son.”
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.
Details of the lawsuit were first reported by WKBW-TV in Buffalo.
A phone and email message left with McCoy’s lawyer, Don Samuel, was not immediately returned.
Cordon’s face was bloodied during a home invasion in the early hours of July 10.
Police in Milton, Georgia, are still investigating and have not identified a suspect.
