Bucs lose DT Gerald McCoy for remainder of season

Two weeks after they suffered a host of injuries in a loss to the Chicago Bears in London, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers were beat up again.

Second-year defensive tackle Gerald McCoy suffered a torn right biceps injury, and the belief is the third overall draft pick from 2010 will miss the remainder of the season, according to Stephen Holder of the St. Petersburg Times. McCoy had just returned from missing two games with an ankle injury.

McCoy suffered a torn biceps in his left arm last season and the injuries just seem to be piling up for the former Oklahoma star. The Bucs drafted a pair of defensive tackles at the top of the ’10 draft and it hasn’t worked out well so far. Fellow tackle Brian Price has been banged up at times too. Fortunately, the Bucs seem to have drafted well in other areas.

Tampa will be challenged moving forward without McCoy.
