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) won't carry an injury designation into Sunday's game against the Saints, Jenna Laine of ESPN.com reports.
McCoy was a limited practice participant Wednesday and Thursday but was able to finish the week with a full practice to avoid the questionable tag. This was to be expected after McCoy indicated earlier this week that he was going to play in Sunday's season finale.
McCoy (biceps) was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice.
McCoy was back in action in last Sunday's loss to the Panthers and managed four tackles (two solo) and a sack over 53 snaps. His limited participation to start Week 17 prep is likely just precautionary, as there were no reported setbacks stemming from his extended workload versus Carolina and McCoy has made his intentions of taking the field in the regular-season finale known in no uncertain terms. The final two practice reports of the week should definitively confirm McCoy's availability.
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.
