McCoy logged three tackles (two solo), including a sack, and was credited with two quarterback hits overall in the Buccaneers' 27-21 win over the Eagles on Sunday. McCoy logged his first quarterback takedown of 2018 when he brought down Nick Foles. The 30-year-old also logged three tackles for the second straight game to open the season, and he appears ready to offer solid IDP value for yet another campaign.
McCoy logged three tackles (one solo), including one for loss, and was credited with two quarterback hits overall during the Buccaneers' 48-40 win over the Saints in Week 1. Given the aerial display put on by both quarterbacks in Week 1, the biggest IDP value was derived from linebackers, safeties and corners that were forced to make plenty of tackles after receptions. However, McCoy managed to carve out a decent performance with limited opportunity, considering Saints running backs only tallied a modest 12 rushes with New Orleans forced to play catch-up for most of the contest. Big things are expected from McCoy this season despite the relatively nondescript start, as the infusion of the talent the defensive line enjoyed this past offseason should reduce the number of double teams the Pro Bowl defensive tackle sees.
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.
