Buffalo Bills running back LeSean McCoy has hired a prominent Atlanta defense attorney amid a police investigation into a home invasion that sent his former girlfriend to the hospital after she was allegedly beaten and robbed of jewelry, Mike Rodak of ESPN reports.

The office of defense attorney Don Samuel confirmed to ESPN and ABC News on Wednesday morning that it was representing McCoy but had not yet released a statement about the case as of Wednesday afternoon.

Samuel has represented several high-profile clients, including serving as part of the defense team for former Baltimore Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis when he was charged with murder in 2000; the charges were later dropped.

Police in the Atlanta suburb of Milton, where McCoy owns the house in which his former girlfriend, Delicia Cordon, was living, have not released details on the case since Tuesday and have not named any suspects. A spokesperson for the Fulton County, Georgia, district attorney's office declined to comment on the case Wednesday.

McCoy, who has been training in Miami this summer, denied accusations made on social media Tuesday by a friend of the victim that he was responsible for her injuries. He said he has not had direct contact with her in months.

The NFL said in a statement Tuesday it was reviewing the matter. The Bills released a statement Tuesday saying they were in contact with McCoy and the NFL, and were continuing to gather information.
