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.
