McCoy totaled four tackles (three solo) and was credited with three quarterback hits overall in the Buccaneers' 34-32 loss to the Falcons on Sunday. He finished the 2018 season with 28 tackles (17 solo), including three for loss, six sacks and one pass defensed across 14 games.
It was a good-but-not-great season for McCoy by his lofty standards, as he posted his lowest tackle total since a six-game 2011 campaign. McCoy did manage to equal his sack total from 2017 despite playing one fewer game, and he's now notched at least that number in six consecutive seasons. However, the nine-year veteran appeared to see a reduction in run-stopping responsibilities due to the presence of first-round pick Vita Vea and offseason acquisition Jason Pierre-Paul, the latter one of the more proficient ends in the NFL at slowing down ground attacks. McCoy also battled nagging injuries to his ankle, shoulder, biceps and calf, which certainly could have played a part in his slight statistical downturn.
McCoy (ankle/shoulder) won't carry an injury designation into Sunday's game against the Ravens, gGreg Auman of The Athletic reports.
McCoy began the week as a limited practice participant but was able to practice fully Friday to avoid the questionable tag. The 30-year-old will take up his usual starting role at defensive tackle for the Buccaneers.
McCoy (ankle/shoulder) was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice, Carmen Vitali of the team's official site reports.
McCoy logged a robust complement of 55 snaps in the Week 14 loss to the Saints, when he was credited with a sole assisted tackle. The multi-time Pro Bowler has seen his production wane during the stretch run, as he's notched just one tackle apiece for three straight games overall. McCoy's limited participation is almost assuredly a form of maintenance for the nine-year veteran, as there's no indication at this point that his Week 15 status is in any jeopardy.
McCoy had two solo tackles and a sack in Sunday's 27-9 win over San Francisco.
McCoy missed two games with a calf injury but returned Week 9 and has added to his sack total in each of the last four games. The 30-year-old has 19 tackles (11 solo) and six sacks, making him an unreliable option for IDP purposes.
McCoy recorded four tackles (all solo) and one sack during Sunday's 38-35 loss to the Giants.
McCoy took down veteran quarterback Eli Manning for his fourth sack of the season. The veteran defensive end's low tackle volume makes him difficult to trust in IDP formats, as he only has 17 tackles on the season. McCoy will look to bounce back against the 49ers in Week 12.
