ESPN NFC South blogger Pat Yasinkas relays that new Bucs coach Greg Schiano loves him some DT Gerald McCoy. “He plays defensive tackle the way I like,’’ Schiano told reporters at the NFL owners meetings. “We’ve got to keep him healthy because I think he can be a dominant force in this league." Yasinkas said he agrees. McCoy obviously has a lot to prove after finishing his first 2 NFL seasons on IR. The guy who followed Ndamukong Suh off the draft board played just 6 games in 2011. But he's also only 24. IDP owners should keep McCoy in mind for DT-required leagues and consider stashing him in a late round. His penetrating style can deliver numbers if he lives up to the opinion of his new HC.

Bucs DT Gerald McCoy is reportedly done for the season with a right biceps injury he suffered on Sunday. The 2nd-year player previously dealt with an ankle sprain and has given IDP owners no reason to stand by him. McCoy will now have to wait another year to start delivering on his #3 overall draft slot. He also finished his rookie season on IR.

Bucs DT Gerald McCoy is inactive for today's game in London. There had been some hope that he'd be ready to return from his high ankle sprain after a surprisingly quick return to practice. He should get back into the lineup in Week 9, after Tampa's bye.

Bucs DT Gerald McCoy was a limited practice participant Wednesday. According to Rick Stroud of the St. Petersburg Times, he "was heavily taped but showed good movement." This is a surprising development following the high ankle sprain that McCoy suffered in Week 5. It was believed he might be out until after the team's Week 8 bye. We'll see if McCoy is well enough to play Sunday.

Bucs DT Gerald McCoy is reportedly off crutches but in a walking boot for the high ankle sprain he suffered Sunday at San Francisco. The 2nd-year DT is not expected to return until after the team's Week 8 bye. That would bring him back for the Week 9 rematch with the Saints.

DT Gerald McCoy returned to practice at full speed on Sunday. The 2nd-year DT was held out of Friday's game because of a shoulder injury, but his weekend return shows the move was more a precaution. McCoy is a high-upside option for IDP players with DT requirements, though he also appears to be going somewhat early at the position in such formats.

Bucs rookie DT Gerald McCoy will miss the rest of the 2010 season after tearing his right biceps in Sunday's game against the Redskins.  Tampa was shredded by RB Ryan Torain without McCoy and will be a favorable matchups for opposing running games the rest of the way.
