Shark Bites

Buccaneers DT Gerald McCoy is probable for Sunday's game against Pittsburgh.  He put in limited practices all week after sitting out Week 3's loss to the Falcons because of a broken hand.  McCoy will have to adjust to playing with a club on that hand, which has to hinder him at a position that depends so heavily on hand usage.  That has him lower in our IDP rankings than usual.  Bucs DE Michael Johnson is questionable on his sprained ankle despite playing last week and putting in limited practices Thursday and Friday.  We'd guess that he'll play, but Johnson has been ineffective since spraining the ankle back in Week 1.  Bucs MLB Mason Foster remains out with a shoulder injury.

Recent Shark Bites

Buccaneers DT Gerald McCoy (calf) is active for today's game against the Panthers. He missed the past 2 games with the injury but returns to boost the Tampa run defense for Week 9.

Buccaneers DT Gerald McCoy appears to have avoided the biceps tear he thought he suffered in the Week 14 loss to the Lions. According to the team website, he is not scheduled for surgery and says he might play Monday night against the Falcons. McCoy has proved tough while playing through multiple injuries throughout his career. He didn't practice Thursday, so we'll see what the rest of the week holds. He'll be tough to like in IDP lineups even if active against a solid Atlanta O-line. But IDP owners can at least hold off on cutting him for now (in many cases). Elsewhere on the Bucs defense, OLB Lavonte David also missed practice Thursday with a hamstring issue. We'll keep an eye on that situation, but he played 100% of the snaps against Detroit and delivered a season-high 13 tackles.

Buccaneers DT Gerald McCoy believes he suffered a torn biceps in Sunday's loss to the Lions, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. McCoy is familiar with the injury, having suffered it twice earlier in his career. He left the game early and did not return. A biceps tear would almost certainly end his season, taking arguably the Bucs' best defensive player out of the lineup.

Buccaneers DT Gerald McCoy (ankle) is active for today's game against the Vikings. He's a solid IDP play in DL slots after registering 4 QB hits in the opening win over the Bears.

The Buccaneers deemed DT Gerald McCoy questionable for Sunday's game at Minnesota. But the veteran progressed from not practicing Wednesday to limited participation Thursday and then full participation Friday. We'd bet on him playing. And after he registered 4 QB hits in the Week 2 win over the Bears, McCoy should be in many IDP lineups. The Bucs D carries attractive upside as well against a Case Keenum piloted Vikings offense. We'll confirm McCoy's status Sunday morning.
