Buffalo Bills running back LeSean McCoy will report to training camp Wednesday amid an investigation into an invasion at a Georgia home he owns that left Delicia Cordon, his former girlfriend, injured.

On Monday, Ian Rapoport and Mike Garafolo of the NFL Network reported the Bills decided that "unless his status changes with the league—it hasn't—the team is expected to treat him like any other player."

After the attack, Cordon called 911 and said she thought McCoy "set me up" because he wanted jewelry back that he'd given her and the individual who broke into the home asked for jewelry.

McCoy released a statement after posts on social media that showcased graphic pictures of Cordon's injuries also accused him of animal and child abuse and the use of steroids.

"For the record, the totally baseless and offensive claims made against me are completely false," McCoy wrote on Twitter. "Furthermore, I have not had any direct contact with any of the people involved in months."

Cordon's lawyer, Tanya Mitchell Graham, later told CBS News her client was "no longer certain" about McCoy's alleged participation in planning the assault.

Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk reported the Bills and the NFL are both reviewing the situation.

For now, Buffalo is going to move forward with McCoy as the centerpiece of its offense to open training camp. Chris Ivory is likely to take the top spot on the depth chart if the starter ends up missing time following the investigation. Travaris Cadet and Marcus Murphy would also be involved.
