McCoy is not expected to be disciplined by the league for his role in a February nightclub brawl, NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

McCoy was cleared of any charges from the incident in question last week, but there remained the possibility of the NFL punishing him for a potential violation of the personal conduct policy. While the league is reportedly still investigating McCoy's role in the scuffle, he seems unlikely to face discipline, which would mark another positive result for him after a dicey off-field situation.

McCoy is not expected to be charged by the Philadelphia District Attorney's office for his alleged role in a Feb. 7 nightclub brawl that resulted in two off-duty police officers being injured, The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

McCoy and three others came under investigation after the incident initially occurred, but no arrest warrants have been issued since and now it appears no charges will be filed. That suggests the D.A.'s office doesn't have enough evidence to charge anyone involved, clearing McCoy from a legal perspective. That being said, the NFL could still punish McCoy for violating the league's personal-conduct policy, but it remains to be seen whether the league office deems any punishment necessary.

A source close to McCoy has said the player is not expecting to be charged for his alleged role in a Feb. 7 nightclub brawl that resulted in two off-duty police officers being injured, The Buffalo News reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

While we can't be sure how trustworthy this source is, things have been trending in this direction over the last week, as it appears investigators either don't have enough evidence to charge McCoy, or it's turned out he was more of a bystander once all the video footage was pieced through. No matter what happens, McCoy still might be hearing from the league, though if he's not convicted of any criminal activity it would seem to point toward a more modest punishment by the league, if any at all.

While McCoy sits in legal limbo, the Bills are preparing as if the running back "will miss several games to begin next season," Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

There have been no developments of interest since it was revealed last Thursday that the Philadelphia District Attorney was "pushing back" against arrest warrants for McCoy and three others for their involvement in an alleged assault of off-duty police officers at a night club in early February. Even if he avoids charges for the incident, the NFL may deem McCoy in violation of the league's personal conduct policy, which would likely be accompanied by a suspension of some type. With that knowledge, the Bills will likely add a running back to their stable via free agency and/or the draft, though Karlos Williams (knee) would be the in-house front-runner to earn starts in the event McCoy misses time.

According to John Gonzalez of CSN Philly, the District Attorney's office is "pushing back" against potential arrest warrants for LeSean McCoy and three others involved in an alleged assault of two off-duty police officers at a Philadelphia night club in early February.

Competitive Edge Analysis

The Philadelphia Police Department completed its investigation of the confrontation more than a week ago, but the D.A.'s office has seemingly delayed issuing warrants for McCoy and company due to the conduct of the officers involved in the fracas. In particular, the D.A.'s office is attempting to determine if the officers were drinking excessively and why they failed to call 9-1-1. These particular officers instead transported themselves to local hospitals for treatment, while a third member of the group, a sergeant, filed a report two days after the incident. While the D.A.'s office attempts to parse out any lingering questions, a press conference and subsequent dissemination of charges isn't imminent.

While the police continue their investigation on an alleged assault of two off-duty police officers at a night club in early February, of which McCoy is thought to be involved, no arrest warrants have been issued yet, The Buffalo News reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

There seems to be some question whether investigators are having a hard time proving who the suspects are based on video evidence, or if the case is such a big deal that they want to make absolutely sure everything is airtight before coming down on a public figure. It's clear the city doesn't take kindly to officers being permanently injured in an ugly incident, so this should continue to be a major news story for weeks if not months of the offseason. And remember, McCoy doesn't have to be convicted of a crime for the NFL to consider a suspension.

Philadelphia authorities won't issue arrest warrants for McCoy (knee) and three others that were involved in an alleged assault of two off-duty police offices at a night club early Sunday morning, CSN Philadelphia reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

The investigation by the District Attorney's office is "moving slowly for a reason," likely in order to put together as many of the pieces of the puzzle as possible. In addition to any legal concerns related to the incident, McCoy can be expected to face consequences from the NFL, but those will likely be delayed while the case works its way through the court system.

Arrest warrants - including aggravated assault charges - are expected to be issued soon for McCoy and three others involved in the Philadelphia nightclub assault of two off-duty police officers early Monday morning, The Buffalo News reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

McCoy seems to be in hot water for allegedly being at the center of ugly fracas, and will likely be hearing from the league office in the near future as well. Under the league's disciplinary policy, a player doesn't have to be convicted of a crime in order to be fined or suspended, should NFL investigators find McCoy was in fact involved in a negative and embarrassing incident.

McCoy, who is being investigated for an alleged assault, will likely be issued a warrant for self-surrender by the middle of the week, Mike Garafolo of FOX Sports reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

According to CSN Philadelphia, McCoy was involved in a nightclub brawl that led to the hospitalization of two off-duty Philadelphia police officers. He's never faced discipline under the NFL's personal conduct policy, but if his involvement in the brawl is found to be significant, he might eventually face the threat of a suspension. The Bills issued a statement saying that they're aware of the reports but unwilling to provide further comment at the time.
