ESPN's Jenna Laine doesn't expect Bucs DT Gerald McCoy (biceps) to play after missing practice on Saturday.

The Bucs were hoping McCoy could play through his Week 14 bicep injury. He's one of the only true difference makers on a defense largely devoid of talent. If he is to miss, the Falcons running game receives an upgrade. With Falcons RB Tevin Coleman (concussion) still in concussion protocol, RB Devonta Freeman is a high-upside play in Week 15.

Both Gerald McCoy and the Bucs are hoping he can play through his Week 14 biceps injury.

Three days after the injury, we've yet to see concrete word on what the plan is moving forward with McCoy. He injured his right biceps last Sunday, and it's the one he tore in 2011. McCoy is likely dealing with some sort of strain, which is technically a tear. He admitted he was essentially playing with one arm last week, so it's hard to envision McCoy being dominant the final three games.

Bucs DT Gerald McCoy fears he suffered a torn biceps in the Week 14 loss to the Lions.

McCoy has torn his biceps twice already in his pro career, tearing the left one as a rookie and the right one the following year. He knows what it feels like, so we'll take his word on it. McCoy would certainly be lost for the remainder of the season against the Falcons, Panthers, and Saints the final three weeks. Tampa already has little defensive line talent, as McCoy is the only true difference maker up front for this woefully-bad defense.

Bucs DT Gerald McCoy was forced from Sunday's game against the Lions with a shoulder/biceps injury.

Officially "doubtful," McCoy was seen crying on the sideline. It's safe to say he's done for the day. McCoy has suffered tears to both biceps during his eight-year career. Hopefully he's avoided a third.

Bucs DT Gerald McCoy (ankle) is questionable for Week 4 against the Giants.

McCoy practiced in full on Friday, suggesting he is almost certain to play. In addition to McCoy, DE Robert Ayers (knee), CB Brent Grimes (shoulder), and DE Noah Spence (shoulder) all were full participants on Friday and are likely to play through questionable tags.

Bucs DT Gerald McCoy (ankle) was in a walking boot following the Week 3 loss to the Vikings.

McCoy was questionable heading into the weekend with an ankle injury, and he aggravated it during the game. He likely will continue to play through the issue, but he is yet another Buc defender slowed or sidelined by injury. McCoy's status will be updated by Wednesday at the latest.

Buccaneers DT Gerald McCoy's MRI revealed a strained groin.

McCoy will sit out Saturday's preseason dress rehearsal against Cleveland but it doesn't sound like he's losing sleep over it. "Whatever happened to good old fashion rest?" he said. "I'm fine." McCoy has 16 days to get ready before Week 1 against the Dolphins.

Buccaneers DT Gerald McCoy is being evaluated for a pelvic/groin injury.

The injury may require an MRI, though the Bucs are optimistic it's nothing serious. McCoy was seemingly always hurt last year, though he only sat out one game. He's tallied at least seven sacks in each of his last four seasons.

The Bucs want to get DT Gerald McCoy snaps at defensive end.

Tampa is looking for ways to find McCoy more pass-rush opportunities. Bucs DC Mike Smith plans to use some 3-4 packages with Chris Baker in the middle and McCoy and Robert Ayers at end. McCoy has seven-plus sacks in four straight seasons.

Bucs DT Gerald McCoy (foot) returned to practice Friday.

McCoy sat out the first two days of practice and will likely be listed as limited Friday. It is the same routine he followed last week before playing 78 percent of the snaps against the Chargers. He will be good to go against the Saints.

Bucs DT Gerald McCoy (foot) did not practice Wednesday.

McCoy was spotted in a boot after Sunday's game, but he said he will be "good to go" in a radio interview Tuesday. The Bucs are likely just giving him some rest, but it would be nice to see McCoy return to practice Thursday.
Wed, Nov 30, 2016 05:58:00 PM

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.

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.
Mon, Nov 28, 2016 02:43:00 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.
