As if the city of Philadelphia didn’t have enough reason to despise Buffalo Bills running back LeSean McCoy, one more was reported Monday morning. It is looking like the former Philadelphia Eagle won’t be suspended for any length of time for the 2016 season.
NFL Senior Media Analyst Ian Rapoport reported Monday morning that McCoy likely won’t be suspended for his involvement in a nightclub brawl that saw him and former running back Curtis Brinkley attack two off-duty police officers.
This comes after he was not charged of anything in the fight just over a week ago.

LeSean McCoy spent six seasons with the Eagles, rushing for over 1,000 yards four different times in that span and is the team’s all-time leading rusher. He was traded to the Bills for linebacker Kiko Alonzo last summer and signed a five-year extension with Buffalo upon arrival.
Many in the city of Philadelphia, including Mayor Jim Kenney, have already spoken out about wanting a re-do on the decision not to charge McCoy. However, that likely will not happen and it is looking like they will have to move on from the situation.
I think it’s pretty clear that McCoy isn’t going to be welcome in Philadelphia for some time.
