Goodell: Lynch did not violate personal conduct policy

PITTSFORD, N.Y. -- NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell won't discipline Buffalo Bills running back Marshawn Lynch for a hit-and-run accident that left a woman injured.

Lynch lost his license last month after he pleaded guilty to a traffic violation. He was driving his 2008 Porsche Cayenne SUV about 3:30 a.m. on May 31 when he hit a 27-year-old Ontario woman and kept going.

He could have faced criminal charges but reached a plea deal with prosecutors. The woman suffered a bruised hip and a cut to her thigh that required seven stitches.

Speaking at Bills training camp, Goodell says since Lynch pleaded guilty to a traffic violation, there was no violation of the league's personal conduct policy.
