It appears some words were taken the wrong way a week ago.

Tanya Mitchell Graham, the lawyer for LeSean McCoy's ex-girlfriend Delicia Cordon who was brutally attacked in a home invasion in a home McCoy owns, told the Buffalo News on Friday that she 'believes very strongly' that the 30-year-old had an involvement in the incident.

"(Cordon) absolutely thinks Mr. McCoy had something to do with it," Graham told the Buffalo News. "She believes anyone else involved was likely contacted by someone else on behalf of Mr. McCoy."

The report comes a week removed from another report which surfaced on July 13 which stated that Cordon was "no longer convinced" of McCoy's involvement in the home invasion and attack earlier this month when someone entered a home she was living in demanding items McCoy gifted to her. Later in the evening on July 13, Cordon's lawyer did say her client is "not backtracking" on her original claims, which Friday's reports now further confirm.

"I mentioned that I had a conversation with our client about the 'criminal burden of proof,' which is a higher standard than a civil burden of proof, and 'probable cause' - legal terms," Graham said. "At this time, there is circumstantial evidence, which is not significant enough probable cause for an arrest; so, I said you can't blame Mr. McCoy without additional evidence."

McCoy immediately denied any involvement in the case when it was first reported but has not commented since.

"This matter is under investigation, and we should allow the City of Milton Police and their detectives to do their job. I think either the way I said that, or the way it was interpreted caused some confusion to suggest that my client was backtracking. She is not. I was just trying to explain the legalities of the incident," Graham added.

Police records previously showed three instances where authorities came to the Milton, Ga., home which McCoy owns and the two previously shared. During the attack, McCoy was training in Miami, however, there were no signs of forced entry at the time of the assault. During one of the three previous visits by police, McCoy said he was worried Cordon would make false accusations about him.

Friday's news comes on the heels of the Bills scheduled to start training camp at St. John Fisher College on Thursday.
