Bucs place DT McCoy, LB Black on IR

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have placed defensive tackle Gerald

McCoy and linebacker Quincy Black on injured reserve. Defensive end

George Johnson and linebacker Tyrone McKenzie were promoted from

the practice squad to fill the roster spots.

McCoy was the third pick in this year’s draft out of Oklahoma.

He suffered a torn left biceps during last Sunday’s 17-16 victory

at Washington, finishing his rookie season with 43 tackles and

three sacks. Originally, the team reported after the game it was

the right biceps.

Black broke a forearm against the Redskins. He started 10 of 11

games he played and had 88 tackles and two sacks.

The Bucs also announced Tuesday that linebacker J.D. Folsom was

added to the practice squad.
