The lawyer for Buffalo Bills running back LeSean McCoy denied that his client made any admission of wrongdoing regarding an alleged assault on off-duty police officers on Feb. 7.

Larry Krasner told TMZ Sports on Thursday that McCoy said, "I'll make a statement sooner than later" rather than what some heard to be "I made a mistake."

McCoy's comments came during an impromptu encounter with Nick Piccone of PhillyInfluencer.com on Wednesday evening. The four-time Pro Bowler spoke quickly, making it difficult to understand what he said.

The alleged altercation McCoy was involved in took place at approximately 2:45 a.m. Sunday at the Recess Lounge in Philadelphia, according to a police report obtained by CSNPhilly.com's John Gonzalez.

A law enforcement official said two of the police officers suffered broken ribs, per Gonzalez. One of the officers also suffered a broken nose, while another was treated for a possible fractured skull.

The severity of injuries suffered in the brawl, per the police report, suggest McCoy could be in serious trouble. It has yet to be determined how involved McCoy was in the fight, and it's difficult to tell based on the video footage obtained by TMZ Tuesday.

A dispute over a champagne bottle was what allegedly led to the nightclub scuffle.

Tyler Dunne of The Buffalo News reported Wednesday arrest warrants were expected to be issued soon and the three others who were fighting on his side at Recess.

McCoy played college football at Pittsburgh and spent his first six seasons with the Philadelphia Eagles before being traded to the Buffalo Bills ahead of the 2015 campaign. He ran for 895 yards and three touchdowns in 12 games this past season.
