[BN] Blitz newsletter: LeSean McCoy: 'The only thing I can control is being a great dad'

Bills running back LeSean McCoy responded Wednesday to a recent court filing from the mother of his child, who alleged that McCoy has been abusive against their son and that McCoy offered her a quid pro quo for her support in a lawsuit filed by his ex-girlfriend.

"These people obviously have so much to gain by doing this," McCoy said. "I'm not going to sit here and spend too much time even talking about it. It's crazy. It's ridiculous. Everything I do is for my little man, my son. If I didn't care, I wouldn't be fighting for custody of my boy."

He added: "In this world with social media, you can say what you want. Cameras, everybody can take it and run with it. I can't control that. The only thing I can control is being a great dad."

The latest allegations against McCoy are not expected to impact his availability for the Bills. The NFL gave him the green light to start the season, and most of the latest allegations have already been made against McCoy to some extent, though not in this detail.

What's more likely to keep McCoy out is the rib injury he suffered in Week 2. McCoy said he won't know if he'll be able to play until later in the week.

Bills-Vikings Scouting Report: If you haven't heard, the Bills just had a cornerback quit on the team. That should tilt things in the favor of Vikings receivers this week. (By the way, Vontae Davis appears at peace with his decision, telling The Undefeated, "leaving was therapeutic.")

Bills' secondary a stunning disaster: Vic Carucci wrote that the Bills' 0-2 start isn't that big of a shock, but "the surprise is the horrific performance of the Bills' defense. ... For now, (the secondary) is nothing short of a disaster."



Quote of the year: Former Bills receiver Jordan Mathews credited his time in Buffalo for the birth of his child – "There wasn't anything to do there but each other," he told the Philadelphia Daily News. While it was funny line, the idea that there's nothing to do in Buffalo is as lame as it gets. If you can't find something to do, that's a you problem. (And besides, Matthews wouldn't have had as much free time if he could actually stay on the field.)
