The Buffalo News' Jay Skurski writes Chris Ivory "would be the first option" if LeSean McCoy is unavailable.

Serious allegations against McCoy of domestic, child, and animal abuse surfaced this week, throwing his availability into question. Signed to a two-year deal in March, Ivory is the obvious replacement for McCoy if the Bills decide to stay in-house, but they could also look to add a veteran like DeMarco Murray or Adrian Peterson. No matter who takes over, Buffalo's offense will be in serious trouble if McCoy is out.

The attorney for Delicia Cordon, the victim in an alleged home invasion at LeSean McCoy's residence in Milton, Georgia, released a statement on Tuesday.

Per the statement, Cordon and McCoy had a past relationship but are now estranged and McCoy has been trying to evict Cordon from his home for several months. Upon returning from London, Cordon and her cousin were allegedly attacked by an assailant who demanded "specific items of jewelry" that McCoy had requested back on "many occasions." Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports that McCoy was training in Miami as early as 7 AM Tuesday morning, less than four hours after the alleged home invasion. You can read the full statement from Cordon's attorney in the link below.

The Milton Police Department released a statement regarding accusations of domestic violence against LeSean McCoy, but did not name McCoy or any suspects in the statement.

Milton Police say they responded to an incident at 3:18 AM on Tuesday morning regarding a "home invasion" that was "specifically targeted" by a suspect or multiple suspects, and was "not a random incident." One victim was found physically assaulted. The suspect allegedly "demanded specific items from the victim." Milton detectives view this as an "open and active investigation." We will continue to monitor all developments in the story.

The Bills released a statement Tuesday regarding domestic violence allegations against LeSean McCoy.

The statement reads, "We have spoken to LeSean and have been in contact with the National Football League. We will continue to gather information." The NFL offered a similar response, simply stating, "We are reviewing the matter." Obviously there isn't much information available right now, though Charles Robinson of Yahoo Sports reports the Milton Police Department in Georgia is preparing a report on the alleged incident. McCoy himself denied the allegations, calling them "totally baseless." We'll update this story as it develops.

In an Instagram post containing a photo of a severely beaten woman, LeSean McCoy is accused of domestic violence, child abuse, and animal abuse.

The photo allegedly shows Delicia Cordon, McCoy's at least one-time girlfriend, with severe facial injuries. The post also alleges McCoy has beaten his dog and child in the past as well as used performance-enhancing drugs. McCoy quickly posted on Instagram himself, saying the allegations are "totally baseless" and claiming he has "not had any direct contact with any of the people involved in months." Yahoo's Charles Robinson reports the police are looking into the allegations. In a statement, the Bills said they "have spoken to LeSean" and "will continue to gather information."

ABC Buffalo believes Josh Allen could still win the Bills' starting job this summer.

Allen spent the offseason primarily running with the third-team offense. Coach Sean McDermott has already said that is where he will begin camp. Draft position talks, however, and Allen will probably flash enough raw talent this summer to put himself seriously in the running. If Allen wins the Week 1 job, he will be set up to fail with an unimpressive receiver corps behind a rebuilding offensive line.

The Buffalo News considers LB Lorenzo Alexander on the roster bubble.

35-year-old Alexander managed three sacks last season after his breakout 2016. With Tremaine Edmunds and Matt Milano locked into starting roles, he may be limited to special teams if he makes the team. Releasing Alexander would save $1.75 million in cap space.

ESPN Bills reporter Mike Rodak believes 2016 first-round DE Shaq Lawson is "competing for a rotational role, if not for his 53-man roster spot entirely" this summer.

Rodak thinks the team could try and trade Lawson ahead of Week 1, especially once free agent pickup Trent Murphy (knee) is back to 100 percent opposite Jerry Hughes. Buffalo also has Eddie Yarbrough, Terrence Fede, and Owa Odighizuwa as rotational pieces. Lawson, the No. 19 overall pick by ex-coach Rex Ryan, has just six sacks across 21 career appearances.

In an interview with WGR 550 Buffalo, Bills GM Brandon Beane said Zay Jones will have to "earn his way" following a disappointing rookie season in 2017.

"He’s not just going to necessarily go right to the top of the line," said Beane. "He’ll have to earn his way." The 23-year-old sat out OTAs while recovering from knee surgery, meaning he has yet to catch passes from newcomers A.J. McCarron and Josh Allen. Jones won't face much competition at receiver in Buffalo, but it will be hard for fantasy owners to trust him after hauling in just 41.5 percent of his targets last year.

According to ESPN's Mike Rodak, Nathan Peterman is a "serious contender" for the Bills' starting quarterback job.

He impressed while rotating first-team reps with A.J. McCarron at Bills' minicamp, completing 10-of-13 passes with a touchdown during 11-on-11 drills at Tuesday's session. Peterman struggled mightily in his lone start last year—he threw five picks against the Chargers before coming out at halftime—but has cleaned up his mechanics after spending the offseason training with QB guru Tom House. The Bills traded up to draft Josh Allen seventh overall in April, but he mostly worked with the third team during spring practices.

Bills OLB Trent Murphy (knee) has yet to be fully cleared.

Murphy was limited to individual drills at OTAs/minicamp. The Bills are counting on him returning to his pre-2017 form after giving Murphy a three-year, $21 million deal this offseason. Murphy will be almost a full year removed from ACL surgery for training camp.

Bills coach Sean McDermott said Zay Jones (knee surgery) is expected to be ready for training camp.

Jones underwent shoulder surgery in January, but the bigger concern is the knee procedure he needed last month. McDermott's confidence suggests that operation was just a scope. Coming off a dreadful rookie season, Jones could use a full training camp.
Jun 14 - 12:23 PM

Bills coach Sean McDermott said No. 7 overall pick Josh Allen will open training camp as the third-team quarterback.

Allen got some first-team reps during minicamp this week, but he mostly worked as the third-team quarterback throughout the offseason program. That will also be the case when camp opens, but it is likely Allen quickly climbs the depth chart in August. A.J. McCarron and Nathan Peterman have been splitting reps with the first-team offense.
Jun 14 - 12:14 PM

According to ABC Buffalo's Joe Buscaglia, A.J. McCarron has been outplayed by Nathan Peterman this offseason.

McCarron has been splitting first-team reps with Peterman and Josh Allen. The Bills' quarterback competition is going to go deep into the preseason, but it's not a good sign McCarron is struggling at minicamp. McCarron's contract ($6M guaranteed; $2.9M dead money) should secure his roster spot.
Jun 13 - 5:49 PM

Bills coach Sean McDermott said No. 7 overall pick Josh Allen will get some first-team reps during this week's minicamp.

It will be a first for the rookie, who has been working behind A.J. McCarron and Nathan Peterman to this point in the offseason program. The coach did say Allen will still mostly work with the third-team, but this is a step in the correct direction. The Bills seemingly want to make Allen earn it, but it would be a surprise if he does not seriously compete for the starting job in camp.
