All of a sudden, ex-Eagles running back has had to answer questions that distract him from his 2018 plans as a Buffalo Bill.

He said yesterday he feels “very confident” about being able to play this season despite an ongoing police investigation into a home invasion at an Atlanta-area house he owns.

“I’m here right now, so I feel very confident,” McCoy said at a news conference, which marked the first time he has addressed reporters since the July 10 attack at his house in which his ex-girlfriend was beaten and robbed of jewelry.

McCoy joined his teammates on the field at St. John Fisher College for the Bills’ first public practice of training camp.

He deflected several questions about the incident during the news conference, saying he wanted to keep his focus on football. McCoy cited an “open investigation” but did not directly address whether he was a subject of the probe.

The NFL said Monday that it was continuing to review the matter involving McCoy but that his status had not changed.

Bills general manager Brandon Beane said he felt confident that McCoy would not be placed on the commissioner’s exempt list, which would prevent him from practicing or playing while an investigation into a violation of the NFL’s personal conduct policy is ongoing.
