Buccaneers defensive tackle Gerald McCoy may be lost for the season with another biceps injury according to published reports.

For the second time in two years Buccaneers defensive tackle Gerald McCoy appears to be lost for the season with a biceps injury, this according to published reports by the St. Pete Times and ProFootballTalk.com.

After the game Brian Price told the St Pete Times it appears McCoy’s injury is another biceps tear, this time on his left side.

“Hey, stuff like that happens, man,” Brian Price told the St. Pete Times. “I feel bad for him because he had the same injury last year, just on the other arm. My heart goes out to him because I know how hard it is being on I.R. I just hope he gets better.

“We can’t count our losses and be sorry for ourselves. We just have to keep pushing.”

Ronde Barber also commented to the Times about McCoy.

“It’s unfortunate,” CB Ronde Barber told the Times. “You hate to see that happen, especially with a young player. We’re a different team without him.”

Sunday’s game in New Orleans was the first contest back for McCoy who injured an ankle in the 48-3 loss to the 49ers in early October.

Earlier in the week McCoy told PewterReport.com he was looking forward to getting back on the field.

“I'm feeling good. I’m going to go out and practice,” McCoy said. “With my ankle injury I’ll just be day-to-day. I’m going to go out, be aggressive and we’ll see what happens.”

For his career McCoy has played in 19 games and recorded 56 tackles, four sacks, 10 tackles for loss, five passes defensed and one forced fumble.

The Buccaneers did not comment Sunday evening and McCoy will be further examined tomorrow back in Tampa.

PewterReport.com will have more information Monday on McCoy’s condition.

    Look at this for what it really means for those of you who think this is such a big loss. When you must count on one man on Defense to carry the whole Defense or they can't operate without him; You have a sorry excuse for a HC, Front office ect. This team should not have to count on any one man or it can't function. So give up the excuses for the Defense because the great McFaine gets hurt.

    Sad to hear this cause he is young and has load of ability. I hope he does all he needs to do, to return to the field in tip top shape and the desire to play for his TEAMMATES. I want the realistist DT results we expected from this young man. Remember what to do Gerald, you are smarter than you think.

    All I know is that when McCoy is out we can't buy a sack. Out of 12 sacks the team has, 10 have come when McCoy is in the game. He just commands so much attention that it frees others up to make plays. I have to admit it does seem as though he is having problems with his biceps. The ankle thing was just unavoidable. As a matter of fact, I'm amazed he wasn't injured more severely on that play. Hope he recovers and is back for the end of the season or next year.

    This sucks and it really makes Gerald's general "laughing boy" personality difficult to accept. Suh is never injured. In fact, the rest of the league bellyaches that he's too physical. I don't question his work ethic or heart, i just think we may have bought a lemon. I sure hope not.

    Just draft any DT from LSU, or Bama, anywhere in the draft, and it'll be an upgrade over McCoy. After watching those teams play Sat, I'd trade anyone of those defense's for ours strait up, better coached units also.

    As a physician I have read that these muscle tears occur primarily because the muscles are over developed and simply become too powerful. Are the Bucs over training? His loss hurts more than losing to the Saints.

    I know one thing. When McCoy is playing the Bucs can stop the run well (except for of course All Day Peterson whom no can stop) and when McCoy is out we can't stop the run. Therefore McCoy has established himself has a key part of this team so I want him on it as long as possible. I think injuries are too random to use as criteria for having a player on your team, especially this early in his career. All Day Peterson was hurt all the time in college and now he's one of the most durable RB's in the league. McCoy wasn't hurt bad in college and now some of you want to give up on him when he's the same age as Clayborn? He's got his whole career ahead of him. We've got great D-line coaches now. I'm sure between them and his trainer than can figure out how to get him to play DT without ripping his biceps. A bicep rip on each arm in consecutive seasons says to me that it's something McCoy is doing wrong with his body, so just talk to him about how he exercises, look at what he does on film and correct the problem.

    Better find a veteran to replace him now before you wait too late.
