McCoy collected three tackles (two solo) in Sunday's 31-24 win over the Saints. The 29-year-old defensive stalwart finished the season with seven total tackles (four solo), including a sack, over the last two contests despite dealing with a partly-torn biceps. With 47 total stops this season, McCoy came just shy of the career-high 50 he posted over 16 games in 2013. However, he did see his sacks drop for the second consecutive season, although the six he compiled were still undeniably impressive for an interior lineman. McCoy remains under team control through the 2021 season and figures to once again serve as the defensive line's linchpin in 2018.
McCoy (biceps) managed four tackles (two solo), including a sack, in Sunday's 22-19 loss to the Panthers. McCoy was effective in his return from what was effectively a two-game absence, considering he'd exited the Week 14 loss to the Lions after one play. The perennial Pro Bowler managed his first sack since Week 11, while his tackle total was also his best since that contest. McCoy needs one takedown of Drew Brees in the regular-season finale versus the Saints this coming Sunday to post at least seven sacks for the fifth consecutive campaign.
McCoy (biceps) is active for Sunday's game against Carolina, Scott Smith of the Buccaneers' official site reports. McCoy sat out last week's game but was able to return to full practice by Friday, rendering his active status as no surprise. Expect him to see his usual role along the defensive line.
McCoy (biceps) was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice, Jenna Laine of ESPN.com reports. McCoy has been dealing with the injury since exiting the Week 14 loss to the Lions after one play. While he was able to avoid the surgeon's knife, he was forced to sit out last Monday night's loss to the Falcons. McCoy remains hopeful of playing Sunday against the Panthers, with Thursday's injury report slated to shed further light on his progress, or lack thereof, toward that goal.
McCoy (biceps) will not play in Monday's game against the Falcons, Greg Auman of the Tampa Bay Times reports. McCoy injured his biceps on the first play of last week's 21-24 loss to the Lions. The Pro Bowl defensive tackle subsequently underwent an MRI, and while the results are unknown, it was determined he would avoid surgery. The team remains optimistic the 29-year-old can still return this season, but it will not be for the Week 15 contest.
