McCoy Says Tight Back Was The Core ProblemAugust 6th, 2012
Now Joe has no medical degree, and Joe didn’t stay in a Holiday Inn Express last night, but Joe knows enough to sniff out a somewhat fishy medical diagnosis.
So when Gerald McCoy told SiriusXM NFL Radio today that tight back muscles led to his two torn biceps in consecutive seasons, Joe was left feeling suspicious.
“What we found out, you know, I got examined more, they looked over my body a little bit more and they found a lot of tight muscles in my back,” McCoy said. “There was a lot of restricted movement … which led to the problem in my arms, stemming down all the way down to my bicep tendon, which was insane, crazy how your muscles are attached.”
Joe couldn’t find a Bucs official that would confirm that a mysteriously tight back led to McCoy landing on injured reserve twice. Frankly, this sounds to Joe more like a chatty, busty massage therapist using her feminine wiles to convince McCoy to buy more offseason rub downs, or perhaps an aggressive physical therapist trying to get in McCoy’s head and score some more expensive stretching sesssions.
Regardless, if McCoy’s feeling like his now loose back is going to keep him healthy, Joe’s happy to go with it.
Go get’em, Gerald.
