    Report: LeSean McCoy won't be disciplined by NFL for role in bar fight

    LeSean McCoy will not be discplined by the NFL for his role in a fight in a Philadelphia bar in February.

    An NFL spokesman confirmed the decision to Vic Carucci of The Buffalo News.

    This comes as no surprise, as NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reported on April 11 that the league was not expected to discipline McCoy, who was not charged as a result of the incident.

    Last week, the Pennsylvania attorney general's office dismissed its investigation of the case. On April 4, Philadelphia District Attorney Seth Williams announced that McCoy would not be charged because there was insufficient evidence regarding his role in the fight. 

    The incident occurred on Feb. 7 at Recess Lounge in Old City. McCoy was involved in an altercation at the club in which two off-duty Philadelphia police officers were injured. According to McCoy's defense attorney Dennis Cogan, McCoy was attempting to settle a dispute between the officers and his friends over a $350 bottle of champagne. 

    McCoy spent the first six years of his career with the Eagles before being traded to the Bills in 2015. He rushed for 895 yards and three touchdowns last season. The Bills, who finished last year 8-8, begin the regular season Sept. 11 at 1 p.m. against the Baltimore Ravens.
