Buccaneers Vs. 49ers: Gerald McCoy Being Evaluated After Suffering Apparently Serious Leg Injury

LaGarrette Blount wasn't the only player who left the Bucs game with an apparent leg injury. Gerald McCoy was forced out very early, and his appeared to be much more serious than Blount's. After suffering the injury early, he was back on the sideline in the second half on crutches and with a walking boot. According to Stephen Holder of TampaBay.com, it appears as though McCoy's injury is near his ankle, but it does not appear to be broken.

Our Buccaneers blog Bucs Nation knows that McCoy might not have been the difference between a win and a loss, but that his absence must have hurt their running defense.

And worst of all, the Bucs saw Gerald McCoy go out of the game with a lower leg injury after getting doubled over early in the game. He was on crutches on the sidelines throughout most of the game, and that did not look good. Losing McCoy clearly hurt the defense as well, as it lacked an explosive presence on the interior defensive line.

We'll have more on the nature and seriousness of this injury as soon as we know more.
