Richie Incognito defends ex-Bills teammate LeSean McCoy, says he knows 'the full story'

LeSean McCoy is no bully, says Richie Incognito.

The former Bills offensive lineman defended his ex-teammate on Twitter after McCoy was accused of being responsible for the vicious assault of his estranged girlfriend, Delicia Cordon.

“I support and stand by my boy, Shady,” Incognito tweeted at 1:30 a.m. Wednesday. “I know the full story and he didn’t do it. People can be quick to make false assumptions without knowing the full story.”

Cordon was attacked at McCoy’s Atlanta home at 3 a.m. on Tuesday by a home invader who sought “specific pieces of jewelry” that McCoy had given to her, according to Tonya Mitchell Graham, the law firm representing Cordon.

A picture of Cordon was posted by her friend, Mia Boykin, on Instagram which showed her in a hospital bed with a swollen eye and blood dripping down her face, accusing McCoy as the one responsible. McCoy has called the allegations “totally baseless.”

Incognito, the player responsible for the BullyGate scandal in 2013 with former Dolphins teammate Jonathan Martin, did not deny that the assault occurred, but seemed to suggest that if McCoy was in fact not the one who attacked her, then he must be innocent.

“She was definitely assaulted. Police were involved,” he said in a separate tweet. “Shady was in Florida and she was in Atlanta.”

While McCoy may not have been the assailant, he still could have had some involvement.

Cordon’s attorneys connected McCoy to the jewelry that was sought, saying he had demanded it be returned during an eviction battle and would often tell Cordon “that she could be robbed because the jewelry was expensive.”

The Bills said they have spoken to their 29-year-old running back and will be in contact with the league as they gather more information.

The NFL has not made any comment as of Wednesday morning.
