McCoy appeared to injure his left knee when he was blocked low on the first defensive series of the game. McCoy returned for the following series, but he was observed limping on the sideline and was taken to the locker room for examination, according to the Bucs Radio Network (via PewterReport.com).
Rapoport: Fundamental difference
The Buccaneers have used a number of high picks in recent drafts on their defensive line to mixed results.
McCoy has finished each of his two seasons in the NFL on injured reserve with biceps injuries. Price had an injury-plagued rookie season and required surgery to reattach his hamstrings to his pelvis during the lockout, then was traded to the Chicago Bears in July.
Bowers was a potential top-five pick who slid in the draft because of a knee injury, and he suffered a torn Achilles tendon during the offseason workout program, jeopardizing his availability for the upcoming season.
