McCoy Injured Early

August 24th, 2012

E.J. Wilson filled in admirably for McCoy as the Bucs’ defense shined

No matter who praises or moans about Gerald McCoy, they all all agree that McCoy has to stay healthy after his first two seasons were cut short by bicep tears.

Now McCoy is hurt again.

On the Bucs’ first defensive series against New England, McCoy was cut at the line of scrimmage with his knee planted and went to the ground. He left the game and apparently came back later for one play before his night was ended abruptly by the Bucs’ coaching staff.

Hopefully, McCoy doesn’t have an injury that will sideline him for opening day.

Amazingly, little known E.J. Wilson was a handful at defensive tackle in McCoy’s absence, while the Bucs’ defense knocked around Tom Brady and looked as dangerous as it has in years.

    I wouldn’t say it was that amazing, Wilson absolutely balled against Tennessee last week, and backed that up with another great game last night. Okoye has serious competition at backup 3tech IMO

    Just watched the game replay, what a nasty play by Cannon for the pats. He purposely dove right into Mccoys knee. We are very fortunate he is not hurt worse. Can’t knock Gerald at all for this one, there is no call for that kind of nasty play, particularly in preseason.
