Rex Ryan on potential LeSean McCoy suspension: 'You prepare for everything'

INDIANAPOLIS -- As star running back LeSean McCoy faces potential criminal charges and a possible suspension for his alleged involvement in a nightclub altercation, Buffalo Bills coach Rex Ryan shot down an NFL Network report that the team is bracing for a possible suspension. Ryan didn't rule out the scenario of possibly drafting a running back. "You prepare for everything as far as players," Ryan said at the NFL scouting combine. "We’ll be prepared to draft, or have a list, of running backs, offensive linemen, defensive linemen, whatever it is. That’s how we go into it." Asked about the report, Ryan said: "I don’t know where they get these reports like that. I think that our team, our organization issued a statement. I’ll stand by that. I’m not going to sit there and talk about or speculate on other things as well.” Ryan made it clear the Bills will contemplate drafting a running back. "Last year, when you look at how the draft went, we drafted a corner in the second round, our first pick in the draft, and that was an area of strength for us," Ryan said. "But we ended up taking a great football player in Darby, because he’s a great player, even though we were much criticized for that move by a lot of people in here. But it ended up working out. So I think, everything you do, you prepare the best that you can with your team and things come up. But as an organization, you prepare for everything.” Follow me on Twitter: @AaronWilson_NFL Aaron Wilson covers the Texans for The Houston Chronicle.
