Bills running back LeSean McCoy appears set to avoid punishment from the NFL, at least for now.
According to The Washington Post, McCoy will not be placed on the commissioner’s exempt list at this time for violating the league’s domestic abuse policy.
McCoy remains involved in an open investigation stemming from a July home invasion during which his ex-girlfriend allegedly was injured.
McCoy, 30, has reached the age of chronic decline for NFL running backs, but he remains the most explosive threat in Buffalo’s offense. He should resume every-down back duties this season, but Chris Ivory could cut into his touchdown total.
Though McCoy has dodged the exempt list to start the season, Roger Goodell could still hand out a suspension sometime during the season.
