The Buffalo Bills and the NFL are investigating allegations made against LeSean McCoy by an unidentified woman on Instagram, claims which the star running back has denied.

An unidentified Instagram user posted a graphic image Tuesday morning of a woman, identified as the user's friend, with cuts and bruises on her face along with a message that accused McCoy of being responsible for the woman's injuries. The post, which has been deleted, also included allegations that McCoy beat his son, beat his dog and used "illegal steroids."

In response to inquiries from ESPN and ABC News into McCoy and the alleged victim, police in Milton, Georgia, released a statement saying they were investigating an early morning home invasion in the Atlanta suburb that sent an unidentified woman to a local hospital with unknown injuries. Police also said a second woman sustained a minor injury during the incident.
