LeSean McCoy rushed 17 times for 110 yards and two touchdowns and caught 3-of-4 targets for six yards in the Bills' Week 3 upset of the Cardinals.
The Cardinals played run-tough defense in their first two games, but they were gashed in the first half of Sunday's contest. McCoy broke off a 24-yard touchdown run to open the TD scoring, and later got in from a shorter distance to give Buffalo what would prove an insurmountable 17-0 lead. McCoy did slow down in the second half, but it was a promising performance in a so-far underwhelming Buffalo offense. The Bills head to Foxboro for Week 4, where McCoy will continue to be a high-volume workhorse and fantasy RB1. Sep 25 - 5:18 PM

LeSean McCoy said the offense under new OC Anthony Lynn will be simpler.

"Not as much thinking," McCoy said. "Now it's just going out there and playing." This is a canned response we hear from every player after a coaching change -- we should hear about how the new offense will allow them to play "faster" soon enough -- but in this case, it might actually be true. Ex-OC Greg Roman ran a complicated scheme, and it is not unreasonable to think the attack will be simplified under a new coordinator. The complexity of the running game was a big factor in the Bills' success under Roman, however, and they still lack the weapons outside and talent up front to really threaten defenses. This team looks headed for disaster.

ESPN reports LeSean McCoy is being sued for his role in a bar fight in Philadelphia this past February.

The Pennsylvania Attorney General's office dropped its investigation two months ago but now McCoy is being sued in civil court by two off-duty policer officers who were involved in the scuffle. The officers allege that they were "viciously beaten and attacked" by McCoy and three of his friends while McCoy claims that he was only breaking up the fight after a misunderstanding over a bottle of champagne. If McCoy was going to be punished by the league for his role in the fight, it probably would have happened by now.

LeSean McCoy rushed 15 times for 59 yards in Buffalo's Week 2 loss to the Jets, adding four receptions for 31 additional yards.

A good chunk of McCoy's yardage came with the game out of reach in the fourth quarter. Shady made a few of his signature cuts, but found rushing room hard to come by against the Jets' dominant defensive line. There wasn't a whole lot he could do. His overall statistical line was eerily similar to his Week 1 16/58/1 as a rusher and 4/12 as a receiver. McCoy is going to have a hard time putting up RB1 numbers against the Cardinals in Week 3.

LeSean McCoy rushed 16 times for 58 yards and one touchdown in the Bills' Week 1 loss to the Ravens.

McCoy was the only source of offense for the Bills, scoring the team's lone touchdown with Tyrod Taylor passing for just 111 yards. McCoy also caught all four of his targets for 12 yards. There wasn't a whole lot of running room to be had for McCoy, but he was able to cash in with a one-yard touchdown run on fourth-and-goal after failures on the three plays before it. McCoy gets a tough date at home against the Jets' stout run defense on Thursday night.

LeSean McCoy won't play in Buffalo's third preseason game.

McCoy isn't injured, but Buffalo isn't taking any chances after losing multiple starters this preseason. Charles Clay and most of their first-team defense will also rest against Washington.
Aug 26 - 6:16 PM's Ian Rapoport reports the Bills have been impressed with LeSean McCoy's shape and conditioning, and are expecting a "huge year."

Teams typically expect huge years from star players. McCoy certainly rebounded from his down 2014 last season, but continued to show an affinity for nagging lower-body injuries. He battled a hamstring issue the Bills later claimed was an ankle ailment this offseason. Shady turned 28 last month. He'll be an RB1 for however long his health cooperates.
Aug 1 - 2:36 PM

LeSean McCoy reported to training camp weighing 210 pounds.

McCoy said it's the "lightest I've been in years." Shady also cut weight before his first year under Chip Kelly in Philadelphia (2013) and had the best season of his career. With Karlos Williams nursing a dad bod and on a four-game suspension, McCoy will be one of the NFL's highest-volume workhorses to open 2016.

The Buffalo News' Vic Carucci reports the NFL will not discipline LeSean McCoy for his role in a nightclub brawl back in February.

McCoy's group of friends allegedly brawled with a group of off-duty cops in Philadelphia, but the D.A.'s office later dropped its investigation. With no legal trouble, McCoy was never expected to face league discipline. This confirms it.
Jul 13 - 10:36 AM

The Pennsylvania Attorney General's office has officially dropped its investigation into the LeSean McCoy nightclub incident.

It was clear from the get go that the "investigation" wasn't going to go anywhere. The February incident was a case of two groups of drunk men behaving badly. This should be the last we hear of it.
Jul 7 - 6:47 PM

The Bills plan to limit LeSean McCoy’s training camp reps.

Bills RBs coach Anthony Lynn doesn’t expect McCoy to play more than 1-2 drives in the preseason. McCoy has been dealing with a minor ankle issue, but the Bills are going to limit him for rest purposes. With Sammy Watkins sidelined, Buffalo can’t afford any setbacks with McCoy.

Bills coach Rex Ryan says LeSean McCoy is dealing with an ankle injury, not hamstring.

Ryan claims he "misspoke" last week. McCoy, of course, battled hamstring issues for much of 2015. Perhaps the Bills want to combat the perception that it's becoming a problem. Whatever McCoy is dealing with won't affect his status for training camp.
Jun 14 - 1:21 PM

LeSean McCoy (hamstring) returned to individual drills on Tuesday.

McCoy sat out last week's OTAs with hamstring tightness but seems to have made a quick recovery. He was seen cutting but didn't participate in team drills. Injuries were an issue for Shady last year, but he was one of the more productive backs in football when healthy, totaling 1,187 yards from scrimmage in 12 games.
Jun 14 - 11:12 AM

LeSean McCoy will sit out OTAs all week with a hamstring injury.

Coach Rex Ryan said it's "not serious," but we've been down this road before with McCoy. He missed a ton of action last summer with a hamstring issue and then re-injured it early last season, causing him to miss Weeks 4 and 5. He was never healthy until midseason. We imagine McCoy should be fine for camp.
Jun 8 - 12:43 PM

The Pennsylvania Attorney General's office plans to re-examine LeSean McCoy's alleged involvement in a brawl at a Philadelphia-area nightclub in February.

The fight left two off-duty officers hospitalized. "I think it’s completely accurate to say LeSean McCoy and anyone else allegedly involved in this incident are not totally cleared," Solicitor General Bruce Castor said. The Philadelphia D.A.'s office declined to press charges on McCoy or anyone else involved in the incident because of both a lack of evidence and the questionable behavior of the officers leading to and following the melee. It is likely the Attorney General's office comes to the same conclusion. The NFL is not expected to hand down discipline related to this incident, but that could change if any new evidence is dredged up.
