(Philadelphia) -- Buffalo Bills running back and Harrisburg native LeSean McCoy has met with Philadelphia prosecutors investigating a nightclub fight that left two off-duty police officers injured.

Defense lawyer Dennis Cogan says McCoy met with assistant city prosecutors at his law office on Tuesday.

District Attorney Seth Williams has said he won't rush a decision on whether anyone should be charged in the 3:00 a.m. brawl on Super Bowl Sunday.

Investigators say the fight stemmed from a misunderstanding over who owned a $350 bottle of champagne.

Police say one officer suffered a broken nose and broken ribs and the other received stitches and had a possible skull fracture.

Cogan says his client was sober and did nothing wrong.

The 27-year-old McCoy spent six years with the Philadelphia Eagles before playing for Buffalo last season.
