The Buffalo Bills named LeSean McCoy a team captain and he is set to play this Sunday. That and more in today’s Morning Charge.

LeSean McCoy’s name entered the news this summer and not in a good way.

The investigation surrounding him is ongoing but he has been declared eligible to play in the Buffalo Bills‘ season opener this Sunday. That doesn’t mean he is in the clear for good, but he is for now.

McCoy was named a team captain on Tuesday.

The fact McCoy was cleared to play may be good news in his favor, but I don’t want to offer up too much speculation.

In a football sense, he is going to be carrying the load on offense, even more than he did a season ago. The additions of Chris Ivory and Marcus Murphy will surely help, but it will be the Captain McCoy show once again.

If he was not cleared to play the outlook for Sunday’s game may not be as bright. Luckily, one of the best running backs in NFL history will be in a Bills uniform on Sunday when the team looks to prove the haters wrong.

That and more in today’s Morning Charge:

Several players got a workout with the Bills on Tuesday. The young wide receiver could be looked at as a potential upgrade over what is already on the roster. He could also be brought in for intel.
