Speaking in a Tuesday radio interview, Gerald McCoy (foot) said he's "good to go" for Week 13.

McCoy's Sunday boot was just a precaution. He'll be out there, and apparently close to 100 percent, against the Chargers.
Nov 29 - 2:48 PM

Bucs DT Gerald McCoy (foot) downplayed his injury following Sunday's win.

McCoy was spotted in a walking boot, but said it's not a concern. "Nothing. I’m fine," McCoy said when asked what was wrong. "It’s stylish. Matches my clothes." McCoy could miss some practice time this week, but is pretty clearly going to suit up against the Chargers.
Nov 28 - 2:43 PM

Bucs DT Gerald McCoy was spotted wearing a boot on his right foot following the Week 12 win over the Seahawks.

McCoy was not announced with an injury during a game he helped dominate with 1.5 sacks including a solo effort on the final drive. It is possible the boot is just precautionary, but he will be a name to watch on the injury reports this week. McCoy missed one game with a calf injury earlier this season.

Gerald McCoy (calf) practiced on a limited basis Wednesday.

It is a step in the right direction after McCoy failed to get in any practice time before being ruled inactive before the bye. Even a limited practice this early in the week puts him on track to play. DE Robert Ayers (ankle) and DT Clinton McDonald (hamstring) remained sidelined Wednesday.
Oct 20 - 9:28 AM

Bucs declared DT Gerald McCoy, DT Clinton McDonald, DE Robert Ayers, WR Cecil Shorts, RB Doug Martin, TE Luke Stocker, and OG Caleb Benenoch inactive for Week 5 against the Panthers.

McCoy (calf), McDonald (hamstring), and Ayers (ankle) are the Bucs' three best defensive linemen. Shorts hasn't played since Week 2 and is curiously still occupying a roster spot for some reason. Martin (hamstring) remains another week away. Jacquizz Rodgers will get the start at running back.
Oct 10 - 7:08 PM

Gerald McCoy (calf) did not practice Saturday.

McCoy is not going to play after sitting out the entire week. He was joined on the sidelines by Robert Ayers and Clinton McDonald, who are both expected to sit Monday night as well. Noah Spence did get in some work Saturday, but the Bucs will be seriously undermanned on the defensive line against the Panthers.
Oct 8 - 11:17 AM

Gerald McCoy (calf) missed Thursday's practice.

The Bucs have yet to formally rule McCoy out for Monday Night Football, but he's expected to sit against the Panthers. McCoy will then have the Bucs' Week 6 bye to heal up.
Oct 6 - 1:47 PM

Bucs DT Gerald McCoy (calf) has not been ruled out for Monday night against the Panthers.

The team said his status is "a wait-and-see deal." Even so, McCoy is unlikely to play after straining his calf last week, and that is the not the end of the Bucs' problems on the defensive line. DE Robert Ayers has missed the last two games with an ankle injury, and rookie DE Noah Spence is expected to sit out this week with a shoulder issue. The Week 6 bye will come as a relief to an ailing defense.
Oct 6 - 9:21 AM

The Tampa Bay Times expects the Bucs to be without DT Gerald McCoy (calf) and DE Noah Spence (shoulder) in Week 5 against the Panthers.

McCoy strained his left calf in Sunday's loss to Denver and was spotted in a walking boot after the game. The injury may be more than a strain. The Bucs have also been without DE Robert Ayers (ankle) for the last two games. These are huge losses for a Tampa Bay defense whose strength is front seven play.
Oct 3 - 5:42 PM

Gerald McCoy was forced from Tampa's Week 4 game against the Broncos with a calf injury.

McCoy is officially "doubtful," but players almost never play through doubtful tags. His Week 4 is done. McCoy missed a bunch of games early in his career, but has only four absences over the past four years. Like all soft-tissue injuries, calf issues can linger. McCoy is week to week.
Oct 2 - 5:03 PM

Bucs DT Gerald McCoy revealed he's been playing through a torn rotator cuff in his shoulder since Week 2.

McCoy has missed just one game this season, but that was because of a broken hand suffered back in Week 12. Despite the injuries, McCoy still leads the team in sacks with 7.5 and was selected for his fourth-straight Pro Bowl. However, he's Pro Football Focus' 34th-ranked defensive tackle out of 70 qualifiers. McCoy could end up requiring surgery next month.

ESPN's Adam Schefter confirmed DT Gerald McCoy (hand) is expected to play Sunday against the Saints.

Lavonte David (ankle) is also expected to give it a go. McCoy sat out last week's game after undergoing a small hand procedure was but was able to practice on a limited basis this week. His return will send Henry Melton back to the bench.
Sun, Dec 13, 2015 09:19:00 AM

The Tampa Bay Times' Rick Stroud reports Bucs DT Gerald McCoy (hand, questionable) will play Week 14 against the Saints.

McCoy was not able to suit up last week after undergoing a small hand procedure. The Bucs' leading pass rusher should be able to go against New Orleans, but Tampa Bay will still be without Jacquies Smith (hamstring, out) and George Johnson (calf, doubtful).
Sat, Dec 12, 2015 09:17:00 AM

Buccaneers DT Gerald McCoy (hand) is questionable for Week 14 against the Saints.

He's been a limited participant at practice this week. Henry Melton started in McCoy's place in Week 13 and would draw another start at right defensive tackle if McCoy can't go Sunday against New Orleans.
