McCoy made three tackles and had 2.5 sacks in Sunday's 37-26 win over the Buccaneers.
McCoy, who was released by Tampa Bay this spring after spending his first nine seasons there, turned in his best performance as a Panther. Not only did he get his first sacks of the season, but he also led Carolina with four quarterback hits and defended a pass as well, gleefully wreaking havoc against his former team.
McCoy (knee) is active Sunday against Jacksonville, Joe Person of The Athletic reports.
McCoy carried an injury tag into last week's game as well, but he ended up suiting up for 46 snaps, even though he was unable to record a tackle. Despite not seeing the practice field this week, he'll suit up and presumably start, where he'll have a chance to make an impact against a run-based Jaguars offense led by Leonard Fournette.
McCoy (knee) is expected to play in Sunday's tilt against the Jaguars, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.
McCoy was listed with a knee injury last week before ultimately playing against the Texans, and he logged a full practice Wednesday before being held out Thursday and Friday this week. He's likely to play and see his typical workload for Carolina against Jacksonville.
McCoy (knee) is questionable for Sunday's game versus the Jaguars, Jourdan Rodrigue of The Athletic reports.
McCoy dealt with this knee injury ahead of past Sunday's game versus the Texans, and it looked like he shook it completely by logging a full practice Wednesday. However, he didn't participate in either Thursday or Friday's practices, leaving him with an injury tag headed into Sunday's contest. Coach Ron Rivera has expressed optimism about McCoy's chances of playing, according to Joe Person of The Athletic.
McCoy (knee) is not practicing Thursday, Joe Person of The Athletic reports.
Coach Ron Rivera indicated that it'll be normal for McCoy to take Thursdays off as a veteran rest day going forward, according to Jourdan Rodrigue of The Athletic, so his availability for Sunday's tilt against the Jaguars doesn't appear to be in jeopardy. The veteran defensive tackle is still looking to log his first sack of the season.
