UPDATE: The worst-case scenario on McCoy’s injury looks to be coming true for the Bucs: The rookie defensive tackle is out for the season due to his biceps injury, according to multiple reports. Bucs coach Raheem Morris also said LB Quincy Black broke his forearm in the second half and is “potentially” also done for the season, according to The Associated Press. More tough news for the Bucs, who have lost Davin Joseph, Cody Grimm, Aqib Talib and Jeff Faine to season-ending injuries the last three games.
Buccaneers rookie DT Gerald McCoy won’t return to Sunday’s game against the Redskins due to a biceps injury, the team announced.
McCoy left the field during the first quarter and headed immediately to the locker room. The specifics of McCoy’s injury aren’t yet known, but if he suffered a torn biceps, the injury would very likely end his season.
McCoy, the third overall pick in April’s draft, had picked up his play of late, registering three sacks in the last three games. Al Woods is currently playing on the inside along Roy Miller in place of McCoy.
