Buccaneers defensive tackle Gerald McCoy will undergo surgery on Wednesday to repair a torn right biceps tendon and expects his rehab to last at least six months. McCoy tore the right biceps tendon trying to tackle Saints running back Chris Ivory with 3:35 left in the first quarter of the Bucs 27-16 loss at New Orleans on Sunday.
The injury is the same one, although to his other arm, that he suffered during a Week 14 game against the Redskins a year ago. Like that injury, this one has left McCoy on injured reserve. “I’m not down,’’ McCoy said during his weekly radio show on WDAE 620 AM on Tuesday. “Everybody expects me to be sad. I’m not said. I’m Loving life. Things could be a lot worse.’’
