Gerald McCoy was in on 57 snaps in Tampa's Week 11 victory, Greg Auman of the Tampa Bay Times reports.
The Pro Bowl defensive tackle had his most productive outing in several weeks versus the Eagles, and helped keep Mark Sanchez off balance the majority of the contest. McCoy has continued to receive a full complement of playing time despite a season-long shoulder ailment, and barring any further injury, this should continue to hold true for the Bucs' final six games.
Gerald McCoy posted three tackles (two solo) and 1.5 sacks in Sunday's 45-17 victory over the Eagles.
The quarterback takedowns were the Pro Bowl tackle's first since Week 5 against the Jaguars, ending an unusually extended dry spell for McCoy. A season-long shoulder ailment may be partially to blame for McCoy's lackluster last four games, but the sixth-year pro has now posted the third-highest sack total of his career (6). At his current pace, McCoy also retains an outside chance of matching his career-high 9.5 total from 2013.
Gerald McCoy (shoulder) is active for Sunday's contest versus the Cowboys, Scott Smith of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers ' official site reports.
McCoy is the key cog of the Buccaneers' first line of defense, but his shoulder injury has put a damper on his production in recent weeks. Still, he's accrued 4.5 sacks among 18 tackles this season.
Gerald McCoy (shoulder) is listed as probable for Sunday's game against the Cowboys.
McCoy has been bothered by his shoulder since Week 3, and while he'll likely remain a regular on the injury report, the issue hasn't impacted his snap count in recent weeks. With 18 tackles and 4.5 sacks in eight games, he's more or less living up to expectations, though his Bucs aren't defending the run as well as they did last season.
Gerald McCoy (shoulder) turned in a limited practice Thursday, Joe Kania of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers official site reports.
The limited practice was notable in the sense that it represented a downgrade from McCoy's full participation label Wednesday. It also marks a break in the routine for the Pro Bowl-tackle, who has customarily been turning in limited sessions throughout the entire practice week before playing a normal amount of snaps on game day. Friday's practice report should shed more light on whether Thursday's developments are a realistic indication that McCoy might be in danger of missing Week 10.
