  • Saints' Erik McCoy: Back to active roster

    The Saints activated McCoy (calf) from injured reserve Saturday.

    McCoy missed the minimum four games while on injured reserve with a calf injury, but he'll presumably return to action Sunday against the Falcons. If available, he figures to reclaim his spot as the team's starting center.

  • Saints' Erik McCoy: Returns to practice Wednesday

    The Saints designated McCoy (calf) to return from injured reserve Wednesday, Nick Underhill of NewOrleans.Football reports.

    McCoy has spent the last four games on IR after being forced out with a calf injury Week 9 versus Baltimore, and he was designated to return to practice at the earliest possible opportunity. The 25-year-old will now have a 21-day window to be restored to the active roster, otherwise he'll revert to IR for the remainder of the 2022 campaign. McCoy's first chance to play again will come Sunday against Atlanta.

  • Saints' Erik McCoy: Sidelined Week 10

    McCoy (calf) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Steelers, Katherine Terrell of reports.

    McCoy was forced out with a calf injury during the first half of Monday's loss to the Ravens and was seen in a walking boot postgame. The 25-year-old then did not practice at all Week 10, so his next opportunity to play will come against the Rams on Sunday, Nov. 20. With McCoy sidelined, Cesar Ruiz will likely shift over to claim the Saints' starting center role while Calvin Throckmorton steps in at right guard.

  • Saints' Erik McCoy: Sporting walking boot postgame

    McCoy (calf) left the locker room with a walking boot following Monday's 27-13 loss to the Ravens, Brooke Kirchhofer of WWL-TV New Orleans reports.

    McCoy was unable to return after exiting in the first half against Baltimore, and he was seen struggling to put any weight on his injured calf postgame, per Kirchhofer. The 25-year-old has started all 52 regular-season games since being selected in the second round of the 2019 NFL Draft, and he inked a five-year contract extension with New Orleans this offseason. It will be worth monitoring McCoy's status heading into Sunday's contest versus Pittsburgh.
