An argument over champagne at an Old City nightclub devolved into a brutal beat-down early Sunday, leaving two off-duty police officers in the hospital and a group of football players, including former Eagles running back LeSean McCoy, facing possible arrest, according to incident reports. The 2:45 a.m. fight in the Recess Lounge on Second Street remains under investigation. Police are seeking arrest warrants. McCoy, 27, who was traded last year from the Eagles to the Buffalo Bills, was with former San Diego Chargers running back Curtis Brinkley, 30; former University of Pittsburgh player Tamarcus Porter, 27; and Christopher Henderson, 26. Some members of the group allegedly assaulted three off-duty officers - including a sergeant - in a dispute over a bottle of champagne, according to police reports.

LeSean McCoy said he tips based on service and did not apologize for the 20-cent tip he left Monday for a waiter at PYT, a burger restaurant in Northern Liberties. "The 20-cent tip was more of just a statement," McCoy said. "You can't be disrespectful and disrespect someone, and tip [the server]. . . . That's why I left my card, so they can see my name. Simple as that. " PYT co-owner Tommy Up told The Inquirer this week that McCoy's party verbally abused the staff and made loud, off-color remarks about women.

LESEAN MCCOY set the bar exceptionally high for himself entering this season. More than 1,600 yards on the ground, a rushing title and preseason chatter of a 2,000-yard campaign tend to have that effect. And while McCoy's sixth NFL season - his second under coach Chip Kelly - didn't live up to the one that preceded it, the Eagles' running back added several more lines to his resume in 2014, chief among them the title as the franchise's all-time leading rusher. McCoy, who finished fifth in the Daily News Sportsperson of the Year voting, finishes the regular season third in the league in rushing, with 1,319 yards - his second-best single-season mark - to go with his five touchdowns.

Eagles running back LeSean McCoy is in the third phase of a five-step concussion recovery process that has already sidelined him for two games. He has progressed since last Friday, when McCoy was in the second stage, but he is still not able to return to the field. Trainer Rick Burkholder said last week that McCoy still displayed concussion symptoms, specifically fatigue. Coach Andy Reid said Monday that McCoy was still undergoing testing. Bryce Brown has starred in McCoy's absence.

Chip Kelly saw LeSean McCoy up close for two years, so he did not need to finish game planning to know what to expect when the Buffalo Bills visit on Sunday. Kelly expects to see a heavy dose of McCoy, the Eagles' all-time leading rusher who Kelly unceremoniously traded to the Bills in March. "I know he's having a good year, but I haven't really broken down film or looked at anything like that," Kelly said. "I know he's the focal point of their offense and we have to do a good job of team tackling against him because, obviously, seeing him in person and knowing him, he's going to make the first guy miss, sometimes the second guy miss.

Philadelphia District Attorney Seth Williams said Friday that prosecutors were still reviewing evidence from a bar brawl this month that allegedly involved former Eagles running back LeSean McCoy, and that there was "no timetable" for a decision on potential criminal charges. In his first public comments on the nearly two-week-old investigation, Williams sought to quell complaints from police officials and others who have questioned why a decision has not been made. "The last thing anyone wants is a rush to judgment," Williams said.

Eagles running back LeSean McCoy released a statement Monday apologizing for a spat with the mother of his son on Twitter late Saturday night. In the public exchange on the social networking site, the woman criticized McCoy, saying he had abandoned their son, among other personal and graphic insults. McCoy responded with insults of his own, and even encouraged his followers to tell the woman to "get a job n stop begging for child support money. " "I would like to express how deeply sorry and remorseful I am to my family, the Philadelphia Eagles, my fans, and every young person who views me as a role model," McCoy said in the statement.

LeSean McCoy hasn't been shy this offseason about calling himself the best running back in the NFL. On Wednesday, he accepted an award for being the best at something else. The Eagles running back received the John Wanamaker Athletic Award for being the athlete who "has done the most to reflect credit upon Philadelphia and the team or sport in which they excel. " McCoy was honored by the Philadelphia Sports Congress in the Crystal Team Room at the Wanamaker Building. McCoy became the sixth Eagles player to win the award and the first since Donovan McNabb in 2007.

LeSean McCoy's right thumb is still wrapped, but the injury that caused him to leave Thursday's preseason game has not prevented the Eagles' Pro Bowl running back from practicing. McCoy said the thumb is "all right. " X-rays revealed that there was no fracture or ligament damage. "Right now, I haven't done so much with it as far as catching with it, running with it," McCoy said. "I've got two weeks. " The starters will not play in Thursday's preseason game against the New York Jets, so McCoy does not need to play until the Sept.

WITH ALL due respect to Brian Westbrook, Duce Staley and the inimitable Ricky Watters, there never has been a back with the gifts of LeSean McCoy. Indeed, only the romance of the run by the La Salle men's basketball team and the shameless self-promotion of ageless boxer Bernard Hopkins kept McCoy from . . . er . . . running away with the award. Mostly, it's because the balloting ends a month before football season ends. Yes, McCoy has been enabled by flashy new coach Chip Kelly, who finished third in the voting.

The Philadelphia Fraternal Order of Police lodge has asked the state Attorney General's Office to investigate a February bar brawl involving football player LeSean McCoy, his friends, and three off-duty police officers in Old City. In a letter sent to Attorney General Kathleen G. Kane on Thursday, John McNesby, president of Lodge 5, ripped into Philadelphia District Attorney Seth Williams for not charging McCoy in the case. McNesby called the decision, announced Monday, "an outrageous cover-up and dereliction of duty by a public official," according to a law-enforcement official who had a copy of the letter but was not authorized to discuss it. McNesby also wrote that Williams was motivated to let the former Eagles running back go without being charged "because McCoy is a prominent professional athlete," the official said.

Former Eagles running back LeSean McCoy will not face charges for his role in a February bar brawl in Old City that left two off-duty police officers hospitalized, District Attorney Seth Williams said Monday. In an afternoon news conference at his office, Williams said that because of conflicting accounts about what happened at Recess Lounge around 2:45 a.m. Feb. 7, there was "insufficient evidence" for criminal charges against McCoy, three of his friends, or three off-duty police officers.

BOCA RATON, Fla. - Could the Eagles draft Ezekiel Elliott with the eighth pick overall in April's draft? Howie Roseman wants the rest of the NFL to think so, or so it would seem. The Eagles vice president of football operations never mentioned the Ohio State product by name on Monday, but it was clear he was referencing Elliott when asked about the value of selecting a running back early in the draft. "There's this narrative that you can get running backs in the fifth, sixth, seventh round and undrafted free agency," Roseman said at the league meetings.

BOCA RATON, Fla. - A year ago at the NFL meetings, we got the "good-to-great" speech from Eagles chairman Jeffrey Lurie. It isn't clear we'll hear from Lurie again, as the league's owners and general managers settle down to business Monday at the Boca Raton Resort, after gathering for the first time Sunday evening. But at some point, Lurie is likely to bump into Chip Kelly, the former Eagles coach whose power grab Lurie rationalized a year ago, Lurie extemporizing for 40 minutes under a fierce sun outside an annex to the Arizona Biltmore hotel.

No new reports have surfaced yet about which side of the NovaCare Complex Howie Roseman is working from these days. It was big news last year around this time when Chip Kelly took control of the Eagles' football operations - at least we all thought he did - and Roseman's nameplate was removed from the office that was in the same wing as Kelly and Ed Marynowitz, the coach's handpicked decision-making assistant. Regardless of Roseman's office location, he obviously has risen and returned as the man in charge of putting together the roster.

There was the thrill of Howie Roseman's trading away the underperforming DeMarco Murray, Byron Maxwell, and Kiko Alonso on Monday, followed shortly thereafter by the agony of realizing the Eagles vice president of football operations would also be responsible for replacing those players. While the compensation for Murray, who was dealt to the Titans, and Maxwell and Alonso, who were traded to the Dolphins, won't likely be announced until Wednesday, the Eagles rid themselves of two overpaid free agents and the injury-prone return on the LeSean McCoy trade.

THE GREAT PART about the National Football League is that there never is a shortage of village idiots. The NFL is the most successful sports league on the face of the earth. It generates nearly $14 billion a year in revenue. Yet, you don't have to look very hard to find someone dumber than you. After usurping personnel power from Howie Roseman following the 2014 season, Chip Kelly went all Monty Hall on us (Google him, kids) and engineered a bunch of questionable trades and spent a Brink's truck full of Jeff Lurie's money on a bunch of free agents he thought would help take the Eagles from good to great.

Former Eagles player LeSean McCoy, his attorney, and members of the District Attorney's Office and the Philadelphia Police Department met at a Center City law office Tuesday, more than two weeks after McCoy allegedly was involved in a bar brawl that injured two off-duty police officers. It was not immediately clear what was discussed at the meeting at 20th and Market Streets. At least six participants declined to comment as they left the building after sunset. Dennis Cogan, McCoy's attorney, whose law office is in the high-rise office building, was among those exiting.
