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.
Jul 15 - 12:21 PM

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
Thu, Oct 6, 2016 01:47:00 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.
