LeSean McCoy focused on teammates and football at the start of training camp


Less than an hour before the first training camp practice commenced for the Bills, feature back LeSean McCoy addressed the media who were looking for his take on the allegations made by his ex-girlfriend that he was somehow involved in the home invasion and attack her and her friend at his Milton, Georgia home earlier this month.

"It's an open investigation, so I'll leave it at that," said McCoy. "Right now, my main focus is here with my teammates. With my team we're trying to build together in camp to try to reach our goals together and that's a championship. I'll let that take care of itself. Right now, I'm just focused on my teammates."

McCoy, was appreciative of the support he's received from both GM Brandon Beane and head coach Sean McDermott.

"They've been very supportive of everything since I got here," he said. "They've been very supportive in helping me out with what I've been through. They've backed me 110 percent. We had a long talk yesterday. We're moving forward. We're ready to roll."

When asked if the investigation was distracting for him at all, McCoy talked about being in tip-top shape coming into camp.

"I'm just maintaining focus. I want to be that leader for my teammates," he said. "I wanted to get in the best shape as possible for this upcoming season and that's it. Try to stay focused."

Beane stated that the club has been in contact with the league and it's their belief that McCoy will be at training camp without interruption, which is why Buffalo's top back is sticking to football and only football.

"Everything is geared toward making this team better," he said. "I want to be there for my guys, my teammates, my coaches. That's kind of my mindset."
