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. Wed, Dec 23, 2015 10:26:00 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).

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.

Bucs declared DT Gerald McCoy, DE Jacquies Smith, DE Geroge Johnson, LB Bruce Carter, QB Ryan Griffin, OT Gosder Cherilus and TE Brandon Myers inactive for Week 13 against the Falcons.

With both McCoy and Smith down, the Bucs will be without their two top pass rushers against the Falcons. Matt Ryan had a big day the last time these two teams met, and he could have another big day Week 13. Ryan is a fine back-end QB1.

He returned to practice on Friday following a small hand procedure but was "very limited." Henry Melton is expected to start in his place. With Jacquies Smith (hamstring, out) also injured, the Bucs will be without their top two pass rushers on Sunday. Things are looking up for Matt Ryan.

Buccaneers DT Gerald McCoy (hand) is doubtful for Week 13 against the Falcons.

He was reportedly "very limited" at Friday's practice. With Jacquies Smith (hamstring) already ruled out and McCoy looking doubtful, Tampa Bay could very well be without its top two pass rushers this week. Matt Ryan threw for 397 yards against the Bucs in Week 8 and should be in for another great game.

Buccaneers DT Gerald McCoy (hand) returned to a limited practice on Friday.

McCoy underwent a small hand procedure earlier this week but has vowed to play Sunday against Atlanta. Practicing Friday is obviously a step in the right direction. He'll likely draw the questionable tag when injury reports are released later today. McCoy leads the Bucs with seven sacks this season and could make things difficult for Matt Ryan if he suits up.

Buccaneers DT Gerald McCoy underwent a "small procedure" on his left hand but hopes to play Sunday against the Falcons.

McCoy hasn't practiced the last two days. He leads the Bucs with seven sacks this year. Henry Melton would likely start at left defensive tackle if McCoy can't go on Sunday.

Bucs DT Gerald McCoy (shoulder) is questionable for Week 3 against the Texans.

McCoy was injured late in Sunday's win over the Saints. There’s been no concern over his status. The Bucs run defense should be in for another strong game after limiting Mark Ingram to 53 yards in Week 2.

Bucs DT Gerald McCoy is getting himself prepared for the team's offseason program by putting in 10 workouts a week.

McCoy's training includes two workouts on Mondays and Wednesdays, three on Tuesdays and Thursdays, and then a three-day recovery period. McCoy's goal is to be ready for crunch time in December. As long as he isn't overdoing it, the Bucs have to be impressed with McCoy's commitment to staying in shape. They invested an eight-year, $108.56 million deal in McCoy last October.

Bucs placed DT Gerald McCoy on injured reserve with a sprained knee, ending his season.

The bad news is that McCoy's "hyperextension" has been upgraded to a sprain, but the good news is that he doesn't need surgery. McCoy will likely be back to 100 percent health sometime in the next 4-6 weeks. The No. 3 overall pick of the 2010 draft has had a beastly season, logging 35 tackles and 8.5 sacks. He's graded out as the No. 2 overall defensive tackle in Pro Football Focus' ratings. McCoy has had trouble with injures in the past, but will head into the offseason having suited up for 45 of Tampa's past 48 games.

Bucs DT Gerald McCoy hyperextended his knee during Sunday's loss at Carolina.

It's the second straight week that McCoy has suffered a knee injury. This time, the Bucs should go ahead and call it a wrap on the season for arguably their best player. McCoy entered Sunday with 8.5 sacks and one forced fumble, grading out as PFF's No. 3 overall defensive tackle.

Bucs DT Gerald McCoy's knee injury is only a bruise.

McCoy played through the ailment in Sunday's loss. It shouldn't be an issue for Week 15.
Mon, Dec 8, 2014 03:11:00 PM

Bucs DT Gerald McCoy exited Week 14 against the Lions with a right knee injury.

It was an odd injury for McCoy. It was a non-contact injury, but he did not appear to twist or land on his knee awkwardly either. McCoy tested out his knee on the sideline before returning one series later.
